    What we need today more than anything else is to invest in beauty, because beauty is harmony which comes from chaos. But we invest in chaos, because chaos is much more profitable than peace …. Beauty is a kind of safety vault for people. And music as well. I don’t think music is beautiful today, music is just a way to advertise other things because music is very powerful as a force and then through music we can advertise anything we want …. When music becomes a product … something is wrong about that.

    …To be interested in education, art, science culture, for me this is the key against the crisis today …. The banking crisis is not as important as the culture crisis. So when you deal with culture I think you can manage the rest easier. All the rest, all the misery comes because we don’t have beauty, you know, the quality of life. And quality of life is not money, quality of life is something else.

  6. Again, you can’t connect the dots looking forward; you can only connect them looking backwards. So you have to trust that the dots will somehow connect in your future. You have to trust in something — your gut, destiny, life, karma, whatever. This approach has never let me down, and it has made all the difference in my life.
