Hier volgen bijna 100 quotes van Bob Marley, want Bob Marley is nog steeds hot. Je kunt overal vlaggen, posters en allerlei parafernalia (mooi woord voor rommel of meuk) van hem kopen.
Ook de quotes van Bob Marley zijn terug te vinden op die posters, op tatoeages en op muren. Hoewel deze rastaman continu stoned was, doet dit dit niet af aan de kwaliteit van de quotes. En vergeet niet: de Franse filosofen Jean-Paul Sartre en Albert Camus zaten ook zwaar aan dope en Friedrich Nietzsche was ook niet al te fris meer in zijn door syfilis aangetaste breintje.
Toch schreven ook deze mannen de mooiste dingen op papier. Want zoals het Bob het zei kon niemand het zeggen: “Herb is the healing of a nation. Alcohol is the destruction.”
Robert Nesta (Bob) Marley (Nine Miles, 6 februari 1945 â€“ Miami, 11 mei 1981) was de belangwekkendste Jamaicaans reggae-artiest. Hij draagt niet voor niets de bijnaam “”The King of Reggae””. Marley was één van de belangrijkste verantwoordelijken voor de doorbraak van reggae buiten Jamaica en gold tevens als voorvechter van het rastafari leefwijze.
Bob Marley had tijdens de jaren 70 over de hele wereld grote reggaehits, als No Woman, No Cry en I Shot the Sheriff. Hij bracht reggaealbums uit zoals als Exodus en Uprising. Hij stierf op 36-jarige leeftijd aan een verwaarloosde ontsteking aan zijn teen, omdat hij dacht dat God en voldoende marihuana zijn teen wel zouden genezen.
Het verhaal gaat dat hij de ontsteking heeft opgelopen tijdens een gezellig partijtje voetballen tegen racistische skinheads in het Hyde Park in Londen.

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 â€“ 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 â€“ 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.
