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.
Singers come and go, but if you're a good actor, you can last a long time
You use a glass mirror to see your face; you use works of art to see your soul.
Art! Who comprehends her? With whom can one consult concerning this great goddess?
I passionately hate the idea of being with it, I think an artist has always to be out of step with his time.
Comedy is the blues for people who can?t sing.
Being a celebrity has taught me to hide, but being an actor has opened my soul.
Every actor in his heart believes everything bad that's printed about him.
Art washes away from the soul the dust of everyday life.
Everything in the universe has a rhythm, everything dances.
Music melts all the separate parts of our bodies together.
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.
Nature scarcely ever gives us the very best; for that we must have recourse to art.
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.
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.
One good thing about music, when it hits you, you feel no pain.
And I'll stand on the ocean until I start sinking.
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.
And, in the end The love you take is equal to the love you make.
The spoken form is in fact a very restrained representation of what is possible in the musical language.
Real popular culture is folk art - coalminers' songs and so forth.
