Talent By Fran Lebowitz

“And the great thing about talent is that it is the one thing, that is absolutely randomly distributed throughout the population of the world. It has nothing to do with anything. It has–You cannot buy it. You cannot learn it. You know, you cannot inherit it. You can’t. It’s not genetic. Okay? It is just sprinkled like sand around the world, and it could come up anywhere.”

Artists By Marvin Gaye

An artist, if he is truly an artist, is um, only interested in one thing, and that is to wake up the minds of men.

Happy Belated Kurt

No one is loved like musicians. You know, no arts…Musicians are loved by people. You know, really loved, because they give them the ability to express their emotions and their memories. There’s no other form that does that.. I mean, I really think musicians, probably musicians and cooks, are responsible for the most pleasure in human life. I mean, music makes people happier, um, and it doesn’t harm them. Most things that make you feel better are harmful. You know, so it’s very unusual. It’s like a drug that doesn’t kill you.
