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 purpose of a writer is to keep civilization from destroying itself.
Music doesn't lie. If there is something to be changed in this world, then it can only happen through music.
Music melts all the separate parts of our bodies together.
The art of art, the glory of expression and the sunshine of the light of letters, is simplicity.
Music with dinner is an insult, both to the cook and the violinist.
To play without passion is inexcusable!
One good thing about music, when it hits you, you feel no pain.
Art not only imitates nature, but also completes its deficiencies.
Intellectual passion drives out sensuality.
Music is mediator between spiritual and sensual life.
I can't listen to that much Wagner. I start getting the urge to conquer Poland.
And I'll stand on the ocean until I start sinking.
Painting is poetry that is seen rather than felt, and poetry is painting that is felt rather than seen.
Singers come and go, but if you're a good actor, you can last a long time
Music was my refuge. I could crawl into the space between the notes and curl my back to loneliness.
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.
Art is magic delivered from the lie of being truth.
Music should be something that makes you gotta move, inside or outside
Everything in the universe has a rhythm, everything dances.
The only escape from the miseries of life are music and cats...
