Once you become predictable, no one's interested anymore.
Art not only imitates nature, but also completes its deficiencies.
Artistic temperament is a disease that afflicts amateurs.
Every work of art is an uncommitted crime.
I accept chaos, I'm not sure whether it accepts me.
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.

It's so sweet, I feel like my teeth are rotting when I listen to the radio.

And, in the end The love you take is equal to the love you make.
Music is mediator between spiritual and sensual life.
I don't know anything about music. In my line you don't have to.
Music is a higher revelation than all wisdom and philosophy.
Music is the literature of the heart; it commences where speech ends.
Art is permitted to survive only if it renounces the right to be different, and integrates itself into the omnipotent realm of the profane.
