Let silence be the art you practice.
One good thing about music, when it hits you, you feel no pain.
The aim of art is to represent not the outward appearance of things, but their inward significance.
The man who writes about himself and his own time is the only man who writes about all people and all time.
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.
I can't listen to that much Wagner. I start getting the urge to conquer Poland.
I don't know anything about music. In my line you don't have to.
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.
Everything in the universe has a rhythm, everything dances.
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.
Every day brings a chance for you to draw in a breath, kick off your shoes, and dance.
A great poet is the most precious jewel of a nation.
Art is magic delivered from the lie of being truth.
Music is the one incorporeal entrance into the higher world of knowledge which comprehends mankind but which mankind cannot comprehend.
Critics are the men who have failed in literature and art.
We all know that art is not truth. Art is a lie that makes us realize the truth.
Art is never finished, only abandoned.
Art is permitted to survive only if it renounces the right to be different, and integrates itself into the omnipotent realm of the profane.
The art of art, the glory of expression and the sunshine of the light of letters, is simplicity.
After silence, that which comes nearest to expressing the inexpressible is music.
To play without passion is inexcusable!
