Bob Marley may be gone, but his legacy will live on forever.
The legendary reggae artist broke barriers for musicians from the Caribbean and ‘became the first international superstar to emerge from a developing country.’

“Live for yourself and you will live in vain; live for others, and you will live again.”
“I know that I’m not perfect and that I don’t claim to be, so before you point your fingers make sure your hands are clean.” —Could You Be Loved, from the album Uprising (1980).
“The biggest coward of a man is to awaken the love of a woman without the intention of loving her.”
“The trust is, everyone is going to hurt you. You just got to find the ones worth suffering for.”
