INSTRUCTION TO THE PEOPLES OF THE EARTH

“You must realize that you have the right to love beauty. You must prepare to live life to the fullest extent… Listening can be one of the greatest pleasures. You must learn to listen because by listening you will learn to see with your mind’s eye. You see, music paints pictures that only the mind can see. Open your ears so you can see with the eye of the mind.”
— Sun Ra
