I don't know anything about music. In my line you don't have to.
I'm very happy to hear that my work inspires writers and painters. It's the most beautiful compliment, the greatest reward. Art should always be an exchange.
I passionately hate the idea of being with it, I think an artist has always to be out of step with his time.
We all know that art is not truth. Art is a lie that makes us realize the truth.
When you were young, and your heart, was an open book. You used to say, live and let live.
Painting is poetry that is seen rather than felt, and poetry is painting that is felt rather than seen.
The absence of limitations is the enemy of art.
Every actor in his heart believes everything bad that's printed about him.
Music is a higher revelation than all wisdom and philosophy.
Poets and heroes are of the same race, the latter do what the former conceive.
Art! Who comprehends her? With whom can one consult concerning this great goddess?
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.
The earth has music for those who listen.
Every day brings a chance for you to draw in a breath, kick off your shoes, and dance.
Let us read, and let us dance; these two amusements will never do any harm to the world.
Music with dinner is an insult, both to the cook and the violinist.
Rhythm is something you either have or don't have, but when you have it, you have it all over.
Being a celebrity has taught me to hide, but being an actor has opened my soul.
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?
You use a glass mirror to see your face; you use works of art to see your soul.
Music was my refuge. I could crawl into the space between the notes and curl my back to loneliness.
