God is in everything whether I’m mentioning him or not.
Cave's response to an interviewer calling Grinderman a "secular record"
Do I personally believe in a personal God? No.Nick Cave
God has matured. He is not the impulsive, bowelless being of the Testaments - the vehement glorymonger, with His bag of cheap carny tricks and his booming voice - the fiery huckster with his burning bushes and his wonder wands. Nowadays God knows what He wants and He knows who He wants.Nick Cave
My responsibility as an artist is to turn up at the page or the piano or the microphone. The rest is up to God.Nick Cave
The actualising of God through the medium of the love song remains my prime motivation as an artist.Nick Cave
Oh, a passing, skeptical kind of interest. I'm a hammer-and-nails kind of guy.Nick Cave
If you're involved with imagination and the creative process, it's not such a difficult thing to believe in a God. But I'm not involved in any religions, and I've never intended to make religious records or records that preach some kind of point of view.Nick Cave
Love is a state that I would like to exist in continuously.Nick Cave
'N is for Any'Nick Cave
I'm looking forward to working with Nick on something special one day. .... He has an amazing gift, a level of spirituality and self-realisation in his writing you don't often find. A Hemingway or Xavier Herbert of our time.Nick Cave
He taught me to never veer too far from who I am, but to go further, try different things, and never lose sight of myself at the core.Nick Cave
I listen to his records and go to his concerts. That's the greatest compliment I can pay an artist.Nick Cave
Outside the world of politics, one person in the world of the arts I would mention as an influence is Nick Cave, another person who has been around since the late 1970s. He has developed and changed remarkably, whilst remaining true to his vision. He has been a great help to me as well, without his knowing it.Nick Cave
