Let us read, and let us dance; these two amusements will never do any harm to the world.
It's so sweet, I feel like my teeth are rotting when I listen to the radio.
I paint objects as I think them, not as I see them.
The art of art, the glory of expression and the sunshine of the light of letters, is simplicity.
I don't know anything about music. In my line you don't have to.
Music is the literature of the heart; it commences where speech ends.
Art washes away from the soul the dust of everyday life.
Every actor in his heart believes everything bad that's printed about him.
I accept chaos, I'm not sure whether it accepts me.
The true art of memory is the art of attention.
People ask me how I make music. I tell them I just step into it. It's like stepping into a river and joining the flow. Every moment in the river has its song.
The absence of limitations is the enemy of art.
The purpose of a writer is to keep civilization from destroying itself.
Everything in the universe has a rhythm, everything dances.
Music is a higher revelation than all wisdom and philosophy.
The earth has music for those who listen.
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 was my refuge. I could crawl into the space between the notes and curl my back to loneliness.
Art is magic delivered from the lie of being truth.
Music should strike fire from the heart of man, and bring tears from the eyes of woman.
When you were young, and your heart, was an open book. You used to say, live and let live.
