Famous Bob Marley Quotes
Top Quotes By Robert Nesta Marley
Bob Marley Quotes - by Kemoy McCurbyn
Bob Marley is without a doubt the greatest reggae artist that ever lived, and even though he died, his legacy is known throughout every continent on earth - and in many case, a legend.
Bob’s words flowed through his music and in any of his songs you can take the melody and tune away from the music, listen to the words and be mesmerized by his amazing words of inspiration.
One thing I know for sure is that Bob was definitely a lover and not a fighter.
I will now provide you some of Bob Marley’s famous quotes. I hope that they provide some inspiration to you as well.
- “You never know how strong you are until being strong is the only choice you have.” – Bob Marley

- “You can’t just live in that negative way……make way for the positive day.” – Bob Marley
- “Overcome the devils with a thing called LOVE.”- Bob Marley
- “You say you love rain, but you use an umbrella to walk under it.
You say you love sun but you seek shade when it is shining. You say you
love wind, but when it comes you close your window. So that’s why I’m
scared when you say you love me.” – Bob Marley
- “I know I’m not perfect and I don’t claim to be, but before you start pointing fingers, make sure your hands are clean.” – Bob Marley
- “The greatness of a man is not how much wealth he acquires, but in his integrity and his ability to affect those around him positively” – Bob Marley
- “Life is one big road with lots of signs. So when you’re 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
Here is one of my favorites:
- “If she’s amazing she won’t be easy. If she’s easy she won’t be amazing. If she’s worth it, you won’t give up. If you give up, you’re not worthy……… The truth is everybody is going to hurt you; you just have to find the ones worth suffering for.” – Bob Marley
My personal favorite quote of them all though is Marley:
- “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 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 of 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
