Critics are the men who have failed in literature and art.
Every actor in his heart believes everything bad that's printed about him.
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.
The music industry can make you feel like a prostitute.
If you do not breathe through writing, if you do not cry out in writing, or sing in writing, then don't write, because our culture has no use for it.

Nature scarcely ever gives us the very best; for that we must have recourse to art.
We all know that art is not truth. Art is a lie that makes us realize the truth.
Music is mediator between spiritual and sensual life.
Let us read, and let us dance; these two amusements will never do any harm to the world.
Music doesn't lie. If there is something to be changed in this world, then it can only happen through music.

Everything in the universe has a rhythm, everything dances.
Every work of art is an uncommitted crime.
I don't know anything about music. In my line you don't have to.
To play without passion is inexcusable!
The only escape from the miseries of life are music and cats...
