Life is short, art is long...
Every work of art which really moves us is in some degree a revelation.
I know how demanding the process of creation is.
I feel strongly that the visual arts are of vast and incalculable importance. Of course I could be prejudiced. I am a visual art.
Kermit the Frog
Art is not a mirror held up to reality, but a hammer with which to shape it.
After silence, that which comes nearest to expressing the inexpressible is music.
Music brings people together. So my function in anything I do is to help bring people closer in."
I've always hid behind the music despite the fact that I have a huge personality. I'm thrilled that the music is bigger than me and will outlive and outlast me. It frees me up to take risks.
Making a living in the arts, though, creates so many jobs for other people.
I see music as fluid architecture.
If you are creative, you get busier as you get older.
The purpose of art is washing the dust of daily life off our souls.
I sing my sorrow and I paint my joy.
Dancing is the way I can express the things that cannot be said.
Well-written words are music.
The real function of artists is to give fresh vision to their own generation.
Writing is an act of faith. I believe it's also an act of hope, the hope that things can get better than they are.
I’ve found that a song can be more effective than a 400-page textbook
Art is not what you see, but what you make others see.
