“That idea of peace and love toward humanity shouldn't be nationalistic or denominational.
It should be a chief concern for all mankind.”
“Good art provides people with a vocabulary about things they can't articulate.”
- Mos Def
"If there is a future wave of wellness on this planet, of harmony, of peace, of an end to war, of mutual understanding, of equality, of fairness, I don't expect it will come from a government, a military force, or a corporation. I no longer even expect it to come from the religions of the world, which together seem to have brought us as much war as they have peace. If there is a future of peace for humankind, if there is to be an understanding of how these invisible, internal things should fit together, I expect it will come from the artists, because that's what we do."
