Bob Marley passed away 29 years ago today. Even though he died before I was born, he has made a deep impact on my life and the way I live it. His words, his music, and just basically the way he stood up for what he believed. Im dedicating all my hits today to you, Bob. You guys should do the same, because you know hes up there somewhere blowing down a cloud of smoke for us too.

Some of my favorite Bob Marley quotes:

“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!”

"When you smoke the herb, it reveals you to yourself"

It took over a year to become popular

although to be fair, even then, it was made on may 10th, still not the 11th, so still technically accurate

I'm a big fan of Marley too!
Some of my favorite quotes:

''Emancipate yourselves from mental slavery, none but ourselves can free our minds''

''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.''

I find myself kind of related to him because we are the children of both races :)

I've been to Jamaica twice to help at orphanages there. Every year they still celebrate Bob Marley's birthday down there. I want to go back soon... I didn't smoke the last times I went, but now that i do, that trip would be epic.

When I applied to CSU, there wasn't a specific prompt I had to answer, it was a pretty open essay. I ended up writing about the song "Wake Up and Live" by Bob Marley; how it has made an impact on my life, as well as how it will influence me throughout college and after. I was a bit nervous sending it in, thinking the school might not take it seriously. However, I got accepted :) and the fact that all my friends were tweaking over essays like 'define x', I was able to be like "yeah... i wrote mine on a bob marley song, and I got in" thanks bob, you helped me get into college :)
