Fly Quotes: Jimi Hendrix

Fly Quotes: Marvin Gaye

“I have no argument wit anyone’s music. If it’s superficial, that’s fine. If its aim is to bring mild pleasure or some sensual delight to the ear, why, that’s wonderful. But if I take my music seriously and do what God has asked me to do, I must use it to awaken the mind of man. I must let the world know that, when it comes to our journey through time, there is more than meets the eye. We must look beyond the veil. True artists lift that veil. And…If I and not a true artist, I am nothing.” -Marvin Gaye
