Zitat des Tages von Ziggy Marley:
My father loved all different types of music. He wasn't a snob. He wasn't a purist.
If it is, it is, If it's not, it's not.
Love is more than one thing.
I grew up with coconuts as the main flavor in food in Jamaica. It's part of our culture.
I'm always in love.
No matter the bad things that happened in past time, let's try to live the best we can now.
I was 12 when my father passed, so I didn't have a father during my teenage years.
Today, music is great for entertainment, but it is lacking soul; it's lacking substance, and it's difficult to find good stuff. There are too many corporate interests. It's not about the actual music because it's about the corporation, and music just becomes part of a package.
I think parents today are looking for meaningful things for their kid. It's about feeding them something with meaning.
I am expressing myself truthfully. That is an important thing.
Religion has become so many different things. Religion is an economic thing for some people. Religion is a gun.
The music I do is food... that will be your dinner.
My whole family is spiritual. My grandmother, grand aunt, cousins, they're all preachers and pastors. Spirituality is a part of my family, from generations ago.
Art is always good. It just depends if you like or not.
Everything, I just wanted to be like my father. And, as I grew within the music, I kind of became myself which was even more like my father, only without me trying though.
I want to be fulfilled in myself, rather than try to follow exactly in my father's footsteps.
I think my type of personality has all music inside of it, so I am full of music, without even knowing it, without even learning it, without even hearing it.
There's more to life than physical and material.
I like Flea, I like him as a musician.
If religion had a good purpose, then man would have created something great. But we're man: we mess up everything. We mess up nature. We mess up God. We take what is given to us and make it into what we think it should be.
People love me everywhere I go.
I've opened up more by traveling outside Jamaica. It helps me to grow as a person to be outside of my element; to be on my own in a strange place meeting people.
I'm not an American, Do they count the votes in America? I haven't voted in Jamaica either.
My father was like the Old Testament. I am the New Testament. I am part of a new generation. In time, people will realize this.
I've tried body surfing. It's nice.
I like doing nothing, actually. Doing nothing is better thing when I am not working.
I was born by myself but carry the spirit and blood of my father, mother and my ancestors. So I am really never alone. My identity is through that line.
The African-American community still needs to come together as one and stand up for rights of the people and of what's happening in their culture, their community.
I would look at a dog and when our eyes met, I realized that the dog and all creatures are my family. They're like you and me.
I prefer the country life. I live in Kingston, but there is lots of trees.
I used to have this little mouse. I buy birds from the pet store and I let them go.
I rented a house, recorded the stuff in a house. Just took my time 'cuz sometimes it's just rush, rush, rush. I just wanna live and play music.
I think Americans should have a policy of love. That should be the foreign policy, love. Export Love.
I don't believe in other people's ideas. I have my own ideas.
It's hard to say a favorite song of my father's. I listen to all his stuff - a lot of the old stuff before the '70s.
URGE is a grassroots charity. We organized to get some incubators to give to the hospital for the kids. We donate money to orphanages.
