What can one say about Bob Marley? So much and also very little. So much can be said about the legend that is Bob Marley but on the other hand so little I can say that will add value to the story of Robert Nesta Marley.
I will just quote the great man himself on the 40th anniversary of his death. Rest in Peace.
“In this great future, you can’t forget your past”
“Better to die fighting for freedom than be a prisoner all the days of your life.”
“Don’t trust people whose feelings change with time. Trust people whose feelings remain the same, even when the time changes.”
“One good thing about music, when it hits you, you feel no pain”
“The greatness of a man is not in how much wealth he acquires, but in his integrity and his ability to affect those around him positively.”
“I don’t stand for the black man’s side, I don’ t stand for the white man’s side. I stand for God’s side.”
“If something can corrupt you, you’re corrupted already.”
“You not supposed to feel down over whatever happen to you. I mean, you’re supposed to use whatever happen to you as some type of upper, not a downer.”
“Free speech carries with some freedom to listen”
“If you’re white and you’re wrong, then you’re wrong; if you’re black and you’re wrong, you’re wrong. People are people. Black, blue, pink, green – God make no rules about color; only society make rules where my people suffer, and that why we must have redemption and redemption now.”
