Bob Marly Radio

I didn't really get into Bob Marley until my Sr. year of HS. After being introduced, I was TOTALLY captivated by his life philosophy, music and read every autobiography I could on him. Recently, I did a search for an online Bob Marley radio station. I thought I knew EVERY song he made until I started listening to this online radio station (click here) which plays Bob Marley 24/7. I listen to his music most of the day while I'm working. His music calms me. These are a few of my favorite Bob Marley quotes:

ON WAR

Until the philosophy which hold one race superior
And another
Inferior
Is finally

And permanently

Discredited

And abandoned -
Everywhere is war - Me say war.
That until there no longer
First class and second class citizens of any nation
Until the color of a man's skin

Is of no more significance than the color of his eyes -
Me say war.
That until the basic human rights

Are equally guaranteed to all,
Without regard to race -

Dis a war.

That until that day

The dream of lasting peace,

World citizenship
Rule of international morality

Will remain in but a fleeting illusion to be pursued,

But never attained -

Now everywhere is war - war.


ON UNGRATEFULNESS
"In the abundance of water, the fool is thirsty"

ON FAKE FRIENDS AND PEOPLE THAT R FULL OF ISH
Man to man is so unjust, children
Ya don't know who to trust

Your worst enemy could be your best friend

And your best friend your worst enemy

Some will eat and drink with you

Then behind dem su-su(gossip) pon(upon) you

Only your friend know your secrets

So only he could reveal it

And
who the cap fit, let them wear it [repeat]

Some will hate you, pretend they love you now
Then behind they try to e-li-min-ate you
But who Jah bless,no one curse
Then God will past the worse

ON HERB

Herb is a plant...herb so good for erry'ting....
Herb is the healing of the nation....
The whole world confuse you and you're worried...
you don't have no time to think...
herb is the thing that gives you a little time for yourself...
so you can live.....alcohol make ya drunk....
herb is more a consciousness.
When you smoke the herb, it reveals you to yourself."


"Excuse me while I light my spliff;
Good God, I gotta take a lift: From reality I just can't drift; That's why I am staying with this riff."

"Bob Marley isn’t my name. I don’t even know my name yet."

“One good thing about music, when it hits- you feel no pain”

“D
on’t worry about a thing, every little thing is gonna be alright”

“E
mancipate yourselves from mental slavery, none but ourselves can free our minds!”

"Overcome the devils with a thing named love."

"My music will go on forever. Maybe it's a fool say that, but when me know facts me can say facts. My music will go on forever."
