You use a glass mirror to see your face; you use works of art to see your soul.
Artistic temperament is a disease that afflicts amateurs.
I passionately hate the idea of being with it, I think an artist has always to be out of step with his time.
Art is magic delivered from the lie of being truth.
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.
Art is never finished, only abandoned.
We're not trying to change the world; just music.
To play without passion is inexcusable!
After silence, that which comes nearest to expressing the inexpressible is music.
Every work of art is an uncommitted crime.
Every actor in his heart believes everything bad that's printed about him.
The spoken form is in fact a very restrained representation of what is possible in the musical language.
What is written without effort is in general read without pleasure.
Rhythm is something you either have or don't have, but when you have it, you have it all over.
A man is a success if he gets up in the morning and gets to bed at night, and in between he does what he wants to do.
Music can change the world because it can change people.
And, in the end The love you take is equal to the love you make.
Music with dinner is an insult, both to the cook and the violinist.
Play it fuckin' loud!
Music should be something that makes you gotta move, inside or outside
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.
