Bob Marley's 70s hit Three Little Birds was what brought to life the phrase "Every Little Thing Is Gonna Be Alright", a lyric that has particularly resonated with all of us in the past year. He is a constant source of inspiration behind our brand and designs, and like he once said: "I wish we were all hippies." we too, live by that mantra.
Known to the world as Bob Marley (1945-1981)—Nesta Robert Marley—was a famous Jamaican reggae musician who began his career in 1963 with a band called the Wailers. The 1970s was when Marley formed the band Bob Marley and the Wailers, and the group went on to produce several successful albums that touched the hearts of the masses and introduced the world to reggae music.
Bob Marley is a big inspiration to us hippies. Although Marley lived in a world that was significantly different from the one we find ourselves in today, the reality is, his messages about life, love and happiness still resonate today.
Marley's songs and messages have to ability to transcend time and culture because he touched at the root of the human condition.
Here are some of our favorite Marley quotes and lyrics that continue to be an inspiration for the team here at Flower Children:
- "One good thing about music— when it hits you, you feel no pain"
- "Overcome the devils with a thing called love"
- "Live the life you love. Love the life you live."
- "The day you stop racing is the day you win the race"
- "Live for yourself and you will live in vain; live for others, and you will live again"
