I know how demanding the process of creation is.
Our brains are organized by stories and images, not statistics.
Making a living in the arts, though, creates so many jobs for other people.
Dancing is the way I can express the things that cannot be said.
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
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.
Life is short, art is long...
I sing my sorrow and I paint my joy.
Well-written words are music.
Music brings people together. So my function in anything I do is to help bring people closer in."
The real function of artists is to give fresh vision to their own generation.
The purpose of art is washing the dust of daily life off our souls.
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.
If you are creative, you get busier as you get older.
After silence, that which comes nearest to expressing the inexpressible is music.
Art is not a mirror held up to reality, but a hammer with which to shape it.
I see music as fluid architecture.
Every work of art which really moves us is in some degree a revelation.
