It's so sweet, I feel like my teeth are rotting when I listen to the radio.
Art is always and everywhere the secret confession, and at the same time the immortal movement of its time
Everything in the universe has a rhythm, everything dances.
Music is a higher revelation than all wisdom and philosophy.
Artistic talent is a gift from God and whoever discovers it in himself has a certain obligation: to know that he cannot waste this talent, but must develop it.
I passionately hate the idea of being with it, I think an artist has always to be out of step with his time.
Music melts all the separate parts of our bodies together.
Music is mediator between spiritual and sensual life.

I accept chaos, I'm not sure whether it accepts me.

One thing that really appeals to me is this idea of music being a living thing that has an evolution that, in a way, enables the artist to sell a process rather than a piece of product.
Every work of art is an uncommitted crime.
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.
Every actor in his heart believes everything bad that's printed about him.
