Music was my refuge. I could crawl into the space between the notes and curl my back to loneliness.
I have a genuine love affair with my audience. When I`m on stage they`re not privileged to see me. It`s a privilege for me to see them.
Painting is poetry that is seen rather than felt, and poetry is painting that is felt rather than seen.
The man who writes about himself and his own time is the only man who writes about all people and all time.
The true art of memory is the art of attention.
We're not trying to change the world; just music.
People ask me how I make music. I tell them I just step into it. It's like stepping into a river and joining the flow. Every moment in the river has its song.
To play without passion is inexcusable!
It's so sweet, I feel like my teeth are rotting when I listen to the radio.
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.
Every actor in his heart believes everything bad that's printed about him.
Music melts all the separate parts of our bodies together.
I accept chaos, I'm not sure whether it accepts me.
Music should strike fire from the heart of man, and bring tears from the eyes of woman.
One good thing about music, when it hits you, you feel no pain.
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.
Art is never finished, only abandoned.
And I'll stand on the ocean until I start sinking.
Music is the one incorporeal entrance into the higher world of knowledge which comprehends mankind but which mankind cannot comprehend.
We all know that art is not truth. Art is a lie that makes us realize the truth.
