We love Bob Marley

Sure we do, not just for his amazing songs but also his perceptions about life, love, liberty and equal rights. He was an advocate of peace, and for some, he was a legend, an inspiration, a believer of living life to the fullest.

In light of the corona virus crisis happening all over the world right now, I thought of putting together some lessons from the man who taught us that love is the most important part of life. May his words give us comfort and hope during this challenging time.

Lessons from Bob Marley – in the time of Covid-19

Free speech carries with it some freedom to listen. – Bob Marley

Communication will always be the key, and it’s always two-way… speaking and listening.

Don’t worry about a thing, coz every little thing, is gonna be okay – Bob Marley

Because yes, this, too, shall pass.

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. – Bob Marley

Love this! Just like Bob, I look forward too for a world where mankind can live together with respect and kindness despite being different from each other.

All you got to do – give a little – Bob Marley

Should I say more? Times like this, that ‘little’ can move mountains.

Your life is worth much more than silver and gold – Bob Marley

If there’s one lesson this virus is teaching all of us, it is that our life is more important than any other material things in this world.

Don’t gain the world and lose your soul, wisdom is better than silver or gold – Bob Marley

I could not agree more.

One good thing about music is that when it hits you, you feel no pain. – Bob Marley

If you’re finding comfort in listening to music, I say just go ahead!

One love, one heart. Let’s get together and feel alright. – Bob Marley

Ooops, careful in taking this literally. It might defeat the purpose of social distancing. The message is simple – let’s fight this crisis with one love and one heart, and together, we can surpass this.

So there you have it. From the man himself, Bob Marley.

He will always be an important historical personality whose contribution to music, community and the world will never be forgotten. May his words continue to inspire us especially during this trying time. Stay safe, stay healthy and stay home. Let’s fight Covid-19 and know that this too shall pass.
