TOP 10 BOB MARLEY’s QUOTE
In commemoration of his birthday yesterday (6 Feb), we share with you some famous quotes from this legend:
- “You may not be her first, her last, or her only. She loved before she may love again. But if she loves you now, what else matters? She’s not perfect—you aren’t either, and 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 about you every second of the day, but she will give you a part of her that she knows 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.” ― Bob Marley
- “Who are you to judge the life I live? I know I’m not perfect and I don’t live to be- but before you start pointing fingers… make sure you hands are clean!” ― Bob Marley
- “He’s not perfect. You aren’t either, and the two of you will never be perfect. But if he can make you laugh at least once, causes you to think twice, and if he admits to being human and making mistakes, hold onto him and give him the most you can. He isn’t going to quote poetry, he’s not thinking about you every moment, but he will give you a part of him that he knows you could break. Don’t hurt him, don’t change him, and don’t expect for more than he can give. Don’t analyze. Smile when he makes you happy, yell when he makes you mad, and miss him when he’s not there. Love hard when there is love to be had. Because perfect guys don’t exist, but there’s always one guy that is perfect for you.”― Bob Marley
- “One love, one heart, one destiny.” ― Bob Marley
- “Love the life you live. Live the life you love.” ― Bob Marley
- “Better to die fighting for freedom then be a prisoner all the days of your life.” ― Bob Marley
- “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!” ― Bob Marley
- “Don’t worry about a thing, every little thing is gonna be alright” ― Bob Marley
- “Emancipate yourselves from mental slavery. None but ourselves can free our minds.” ― Bob Marley
- “Live for yourself and you will live in vain; Live for others, and you will live again.” ― Bob Marley
