"Religion is an insult to human dignity. With or without it you would have good people doing good things and evil people doing evil things. But for good people to do evil things, that takes religion."
"We have no say in what life is or what it will ever be, but in art we can make our worlds as perfect as our dreams will allow. My undying lust for this emotional release called "music" is the passion behind this piece of my soul that I wish for you to possess. These notes drip from my fingers as would the lifeblood from my heart. Embrace them and enter my world. "
