The earth has music for those who listen.
Music was my refuge. I could crawl into the space between the notes and curl my back to loneliness.
Every actor in his heart believes everything bad that's printed about him.
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.
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?
The true art of memory is the art of attention.
We all know that art is not truth. Art is a lie that makes us realize the truth.
Music is a higher revelation than all wisdom and philosophy.
Music is the one incorporeal entrance into the higher world of knowledge which comprehends mankind but which mankind cannot comprehend.
Art! Who comprehends her? With whom can one consult concerning this great goddess?
Rock and roll music, if you like it, if you feel it, you can't help but move to it. That's what happens to me. I can't help it.

A great poet is the most precious jewel of a nation.
You use a glass mirror to see your face; you use works of art to see your soul.
Adding sound to movies would be like putting lipstick on the Venus de Milo.
We're not trying to change the world; just music.
Poets and heroes are of the same race, the latter do what the former conceive.
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.
Rhythm is something you either have or don't have, but when you have it, you have it all over.
I passionately hate the idea of being with it, I think an artist has always to be out of step with his time.
One good thing about music, when it hits you, you feel no pain.
