Once you become predictable, no one's interested anymore.
Nature scarcely ever gives us the very best; for that we must have recourse to art.
Let silence be the art you practice.
Every work of art is an uncommitted crime.
After silence, that which comes nearest to expressing the inexpressible is music.

A great poet is the most precious jewel of a nation.
Every actor in his heart believes everything bad that's printed about him.
Art washes away from the soul the dust of everyday life.
I passionately hate the idea of being with it, I think an artist has always to be out of step with his time.

Music is the one incorporeal entrance into the higher world of knowledge which comprehends mankind but which mankind cannot comprehend.
Music can change the world because it can change people.
