One good thing about music, when it hits you, you feel no pain.
Music in the soul can be heard by the universe.
Rhythm is something you either have or don't have, but when you have it, you have it all over.
Painting is poetry that is seen rather than felt, and poetry is painting that is felt rather than seen.
I passionately hate the idea of being with it, I think an artist has always to be out of step with his time.
The music industry can make you feel like a prostitute.
Artistic temperament is a disease that afflicts amateurs.
Every actor in his heart believes everything bad that's printed about him.
The absence of limitations is the enemy of art.
Artistic talent is a gift from God and whoever discovers it in himself has a certain obligation: to know that he cannot waste this talent, but must develop it.
Music was my refuge. I could crawl into the space between the notes and curl my back to loneliness.
Once you become predictable, no one's interested anymore.
Art is magic delivered from the lie of being truth.

Art is never finished, only abandoned.
The purpose of a writer is to keep civilization from destroying itself.
Music melts all the separate parts of our bodies together.
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.
We're not trying to change the world; just music.
You use a glass mirror to see your face; you use works of art to see your soul.
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.
