I passionately hate the idea of being with it, I think an artist has always to be out of step with his time.
You use a glass mirror to see your face; you use works of art to see your soul.
The aim of art is to represent not the outward appearance of things, but their inward significance.
Rock and roll music, if you like it, if you feel it, you can't help but move to it. That's what happens to me. I can't help it.
Music is the one incorporeal entrance into the higher world of knowledge which comprehends mankind but which mankind cannot comprehend.
Music is mediator between spiritual and sensual life.
I think another thing is that we don't really want exclusivity. We accept that it is in the artist's interest to be on sale in every place where they sell music.
The absence of limitations is the enemy of art.
Let us read, and let us dance; these two amusements will never do any harm to the world.
And, in the end The love you take is equal to the love you make.
Music doesn't lie. If there is something to be changed in this world, then it can only happen through music.
Adding sound to movies would be like putting lipstick on the Venus de Milo.
Critics are the men who have failed in literature and art.
Music should strike fire from the heart of man, and bring tears from the eyes of woman.
Once you become predictable, no one's interested anymore.
Let silence be the art you practice.
We're not trying to change the world; just music.
Comedy is the blues for people who can?t sing.
If you do not breathe through writing, if you do not cry out in writing, or sing in writing, then don't write, because our culture has no use for it.
Art not only imitates nature, but also completes its deficiencies.
Singers come and go, but if you're a good actor, you can last a long time
