The absence of limitations is the enemy of art.
Art is magic delivered from the lie of being truth.
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.
Music is mediator between spiritual and sensual life.
Adding sound to movies would be like putting lipstick on the Venus de Milo.
Every day brings a chance for you to draw in a breath, kick off your shoes, and dance.
And, in the end The love you take is equal to the love you make.
Art is never finished, only abandoned.
Music is the one incorporeal entrance into the higher world of knowledge which comprehends mankind but which mankind cannot comprehend.
Artistic temperament is a disease that afflicts amateurs.
Music is the literature of the heart; it commences where speech ends.
One good thing about music, when it hits you, you feel no pain.
After silence, that which comes nearest to expressing the inexpressible is music.
Music is a higher revelation than all wisdom and philosophy.
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.
Once you become predictable, no one's interested anymore.
Play it fuckin' loud!
Critics are the men who have failed in literature and art.
Each song is a child I nourish and give my love to. But even if you have never written a song, your life is a song. How can it not be?
A man is a success if he gets up in the morning and gets to bed at night, and in between he does what he wants to do.
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.
