Quotes

  • The greatness of a man is not in how much wealth he acquires, but in his integrity and his ability to affect those around him positively.
  • Open your eyes, look within. Are you satisfied with the life you're living?
  • The good times of today, are the sad thoughts of tomorrow.
  • Me only have one ambition, y'know. I only have one thing I really like to see happen. I like to see mankind live together - black, white, Chinese, everyone - that's all.
  • One good thing about music, when it hits you, you feel no pain.
  • God sent me on earth. He send me to do something, and nobody can stop me. If God want to stop me, then I stop. Man never can.
  • 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!
  • People want to listen to a message, word from Jah. This could be passed through me or anybody. I am not a leader. Messenger. The words of the songs, not the person, is what attracts people.
  • 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.

  • Get up, stand up, Stand up for your rights. Get up, stand up, Don't give up the fight.
  • Every time I plant a seed, He say kill it before it grow, he say kill it before they grow.
  • Me is a common sense man. That mean when me explain things, me explain it in a very simple way; that mean if I explain it to a baby, the baby will understand too, you know.
  • Man is a universe within himself.
  • In this bright future you can't forget your past.
  • I no have education. I have inspiration. If I was educated, I would be a damn fool.
  • Herb is the healing of a nation, alcohol is the destruction.
  • You entertain people who are satisfied. Hungry people can't be entertained - or people who are afraid. You can't entertain a man who has no food.
  • My music fights against the system that teaches to live and die.
