Music is the literature of the heart; it commences where speech ends.
The true art of memory is the art of attention.
Every day brings a chance for you to draw in a breath, kick off your shoes, and dance.
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.
Painting is poetry that is seen rather than felt, and poetry is painting that is felt rather than seen.
The aim of art is to represent not the outward appearance of things, but their inward significance.
The purpose of a writer is to keep civilization from destroying itself.
Music doesn't lie. If there is something to be changed in this world, then it can only happen through music.
Every work of art is an uncommitted crime.
And, in the end The love you take is equal to the love you make.
Music can change the world because it can change people.
Music is a higher revelation than all wisdom and philosophy.
Singers come and go, but if you're a good actor, you can last a long time
The music industry can make you feel like a prostitute.
Play it fuckin' loud!
The earth has music for those who listen.
Nature scarcely ever gives us the very best; for that we must have recourse to art.
I don't know anything about music. In my line you don't have to.
When you were young, and your heart, was an open book. You used to say, live and let live.
Let silence be the art you practice.
Critics are the men who have failed in literature and art.
