Bob Marley Quote
“I know that I'm not perfect and that I don't claim to be,
so before you point your fingers make sure your hands are clean”
Judge Not (1961) - Song Lyrics
“Life is one big road with lots of signs.
So when you riding through the ruts, don't complicate your mind.
Flee from hate, mischief and jealousy.
Don't bury your thoughts, put your vision to reality.
Wake Up and Live!”
Wake Up and Live! on Survival (1979) - Song Lyrics
Song Lyrics - TrenchTown Rock (1973). Also quoted in the book: "Bob Marley: music, myth & the Rastas" (Carib-Arawak, 1976) by Henderson Dalrymple, p. 29.
“Road of life is rocky and you may stumble too,
so while you talk about me, someone else is judging you”

Quote of the day
“Finding the occasional straw of truth awash in a great ocean of confusion and bamboozle requires intelligence, vigilance, dedication and courage. But if we don't practice these tough habits of thought, we cannot hope to solve the truly serious problems that face us - and we risk becoming a nation of suckers, up for grabs by the next charlatan who comes along.”
