Every work of art which really moves us is in some degree a revelation.
Art is not what you see, but what you make others see.
The real function of artists is to give fresh vision to their own generation.
Life is short, art is long...
I’ve found that a song can be more effective than a 400-page textbook
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 know how demanding the process of creation is.
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.
After silence, that which comes nearest to expressing the inexpressible is music.
I see music as fluid architecture.
Well-written words are 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.
Art is not a mirror held up to reality, but a hammer with which to shape it.
I feel strongly that the visual arts are of vast and incalculable importance. Of course I could be prejudiced. I am a visual art.

Dancing is the way I can express the things that cannot be said.
