Nature scarcely ever gives us the very best; for that we must have recourse to art.
Art is permitted to survive only if it renounces the right to be different, and integrates itself into the omnipotent realm of the profane.
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.
And, in the end The love you take is equal to the love you make.
Every actor in his heart believes everything bad that's printed about him.
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.
Every day brings a chance for you to draw in a breath, kick off your shoes, and dance.
The art of art, the glory of expression and the sunshine of the light of letters, is simplicity.
One good thing about music, when it hits you, you feel no pain.
Painting is poetry that is seen rather than felt, and poetry is painting that is felt rather than seen.
One thing that really appeals to me is this idea of music being a living thing that has an evolution that, in a way, enables the artist to sell a process rather than a piece of product.
Being a celebrity has taught me to hide, but being an actor has opened my soul.
Let silence be the art you practice.
Music should be something that makes you gotta move, inside or outside
Art not only imitates nature, but also completes its deficiencies.
Once you become predictable, no one's interested anymore.
Play it fuckin' loud!
Comedy is the blues for people who can?t sing.
We're not trying to change the world; just music.
We all know that art is not truth. Art is a lie that makes us realize the truth.
The purpose of a writer is to keep civilization from destroying itself.
