We're not trying to change the world; just music.
Every work of art is an uncommitted crime.
Play it fuckin' loud!
The man who writes about himself and his own time is the only man who writes about all people and all time.
Music is mediator between spiritual and sensual life.
I don't know anything about music. In my line you don't have to.
An artist's duty is rather to stay open-minded and in a state where he can receive information and inspiration. You always have to be ready for that little artistic Epiphany.
Intellectual passion drives out sensuality.
I love rock-n-roll. I think it's an exciting art form. It's revolutionary. Still revolutionary and it changed people. It changed their hearts. But yeah, even rock-n-roll has a lot of rubbish, really bad music.
Art is never finished, only abandoned.
Everything in the universe has a rhythm, everything dances.
Art not only imitates nature, but also completes its deficiencies.
And, in the end The love you take is equal to the love you make.
Music doesn't lie. If there is something to be changed in this world, then it can only happen through 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.
Music is a higher revelation than all wisdom and philosophy.
Poets and heroes are of the same race, the latter do what the former conceive.
The earth has music for those who listen.
I'm very happy to hear that my work inspires writers and painters. It's the most beautiful compliment, the greatest reward. Art should always be an exchange.
The art of art, the glory of expression and the sunshine of the light of letters, is simplicity.
I paint objects as I think them, not as I see them.
