Bob Marley Quotes About Love, Life & Happiness

Bob Marley's Legacy

When it's all said and done, Bob Marley may end up being one of the most influential singer-songwriters of all time. By praising God and singing about peace, love and freedom, Marley's music falls under a theme that will endure forever. If there's one thing that history has taught us, it is that future generations will continue to seek God and the peace, love and freedom that He offers. With that being said, I truly believe that the generations of the future will continue to listen to Bob Marley's music, not only because his music is great, but because of the message he delivered. Through his work, he became an international superstar that affected millions of people all around the world. It's been 30 years since Marley passed away and his music is more popular now than ever.

Marley's message was made evident through his lyrics and the quotes he made regarding love, life and happiness. I have compiled a list of quotes on Bob Marley's views and posted them below. I hope you enjoy.

Quotes About Love

-“Love would never leave us alone”

-“If puss and dog can get together, why cant we love one another?”

-“Conquer the devils with a little thing called love!”

-“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.”

-"One love, one heart, one destiny."

-"You may not be her first, her last, or her only. She's loved before she may love again. But if she loves you now, what else matters? She's not perfect, you aren't either & the two of you may never be perfect together. But if she can make you laugh, cause you to think twice, and admit to being human and making mistakes, hold onto her and give her the most you can. She may not be thinking of you every second of the day, but she will give you a part of her that she know's you can break: her heart. So don't hurt her, don't change her, don't analyze and don't expect more than she can give. Smile when she makes you happy, let her know when she makes you mad, and miss her when she's not there."

-"I have got a running stream of love you see. So no matter what stages.. they put us through, we'll never be blue."

Quotes About Life

-"Open your eyes, look within. Are you satisfied with the life you're living?"

-“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!”

-"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"

-"When one door is closed, don't you know that many more are open"

-"Life and Jah are one in the same. Jah is the gift of existence. I am in some way eternal, I will never be duplicated. The singularity of every man and woman is Jah's gift. What we struggle to make of it is our sole gift to Jah. The process of what that struggle becomes, in time, the Truth."

-"The harder the battle the sweet of jah victory."

-"Emancipate yourselves from mental slavery, none but ourselves can free our minds!"

-"Get up, stand up, Stand up for your rights. Get up, stand up, Don't give up the fight."

-"Man is a universe within himself."

Bob Marley Music

Quotes About Happiness

-"Some people feel the rain. Others just get wet."

-"Don't worry about a thing, every little thing is gonna be alright."

-"Hey mister music, sure sounds good to me I can't refuse it what to be got to be."

-"Just can't live that negative way... make way for the positive day!"

-"One good thing about music, when it hits you, you feel no pain."

-"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."

-"When the root is strong, the fruit is sweet."

Bob Marley was one of the best artis in his time, he has brought all of his great music to my genration, showing younger kids its not all about, smoking pot, its about happness and Love. Yes Bobby wrote about pot because that's what made him happy, good made the pot so that's why he smoked it.

Brent, The quote about Women...If that is a Bob Marley quote, then I don't know BM. Not only does it NOT sound anything like Marley would ever say, I can't find a single actual source from a song, book, interview.
