Che Baraka - From the Art category:

The veracity of 'art for art's sake' is more accurately expressed as 'art for our sake.' (Che Baraka)

Che Baraka - From the Belief category:

I have but two absolute beliefs. The meaning of all life is being. However, we do art, which is how we measure the meaning of all being. It's the latter belief that makes the former belief absolute and vice versa. (Che Baraka)

Che Baraka - From the Knowledge category:
