I passionately hate the idea of being with it, I think an artist has always to be out of step with his time.
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 washes away from the soul the dust of everyday life.
Art is never finished, only abandoned.
I can't listen to that much Wagner. I start getting the urge to conquer Poland.
Art! Who comprehends her? With whom can one consult concerning this great goddess?
Let silence be the art you practice.
Every day brings a chance for you to draw in a breath, kick off your shoes, and dance.
What is written without effort is in general read without pleasure.
Music doesn't lie. If there is something to be changed in this world, then it can only happen through music.
After silence, that which comes nearest to expressing the inexpressible is music.
I accept chaos, I'm not sure whether it accepts me.
Art is always and everywhere the secret confession, and at the same time the immortal movement of its time
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 not only imitates nature, but also completes its deficiencies.
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.
I paint objects as I think them, not as I see them.
The man who writes about himself and his own time is the only man who writes about all people and all time.
Music can change the world because it can change people.
The purpose of a writer is to keep civilization from destroying itself.
Art is magic delivered from the lie of being truth.
