Bob Marley Quote
“Me only have one ambition, y'know. I only have one thing I really like to see happen. I like to see mankind live together - black, white, Chinese, everyone - that's all.”
As quoted in "Bob Marley: Musician" (Infobase Publishing, 2009) by Sherry Paprocki and Sean Dolan, p. 75
“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
“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”
