Emancipate yourself from mental slavery. None but ourselves can free our minds.
Don’t gain the world and lose your soul, wisdom is better than silver or gold…
The stone that the builder refused, will always be the head cornerstone.
Life is one big road with lots of signs. So when you are riding through the ruts, don’t complicate your mind.
One love, one heart, one destiny.
When you smoke the herb, it reveals you to yourself.
He (Bob Marley) had this idea, it was kind of a virologist idea, he believed he could cure racism and hate, literally cure it by injecting music and love into people’s lives. One day he was scheduled to perform at a peace concert, gunmen came to his house and shot him down. Two days later he walked out on that stage and sang. Somebody asked him why. He said the people who were trying to make this world worse are not taking a day off. How can I? Light up the darkness.
Get up, stand up, stand up for your rights.
Don’t let them fool ya,
Or even try to school ya! Oh, no!
We’ve got a mind of our own,
So go to hell if what you’re thinking is not right!
Love would never leave us alone,
A-yin the darkness there must come out to light.
One good thing about music, when it hits you, you feel no pain.
