After silence, that which comes nearest to expressing the inexpressible is music.
Music doesn't lie. If there is something to be changed in this world, then it can only happen through music.
We all know that art is not truth. Art is a lie that makes us realize the truth.
Music should strike fire from the heart of man, and bring tears from the eyes of woman.
Music was my refuge. I could crawl into the space between the notes and curl my back to loneliness.
The music industry can make you feel like a prostitute.
Music can change the world because it can change people.
When you were young, and your heart, was an open book. You used to say, live and let live.
I love rock-n-roll. I think it's an exciting art form. It's revolutionary. Still revolutionary and it changed people. It changed their hearts. But yeah, even rock-n-roll has a lot of rubbish, really bad music.
An artist's duty is rather to stay open-minded and in a state where he can receive information and inspiration. You always have to be ready for that little artistic Epiphany.
Music is the literature of the heart; it commences where speech ends.
Art not only imitates nature, but also completes its deficiencies.
I'm very happy to hear that my work inspires writers and painters. It's the most beautiful compliment, the greatest reward. Art should always be an exchange.
I accept chaos, I'm not sure whether it accepts me.
Music with dinner is an insult, both to the cook and the violinist.
Being a celebrity has taught me to hide, but being an actor has opened my soul.
Once you become predictable, no one's interested anymore.
What is written without effort is in general read without pleasure.
And I'll stand on the ocean until I start sinking.
Art is magic delivered from the lie of being truth.
The true art of memory is the art of attention.
