One good thing about music, when it hits you, you feel no pain.

You ain't gonna miss your water until your well runs dry.

Don't gain the world and lose your soul, wisdom is better than silver or gold...

Don't worry about a thing, 'cause every little thing gonna be all right.

The power of philosophy floats through my head, light like a feather, heavy as lead.

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.

Don't worry about a thing, every little thing is gonna be alright.

Emancipate yourselves from mental slavery, None but ourselves can free our minds.

Herb is the healing of a nation, alcohol is the destruction.

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!

When you smoke the herb, it reveals you to yourself.

In this bright future you can't forget your past.

Open your eyes, look within. Are you satisfied with the life you're living?

Free speech carries with it some freedom to listen.

Get up, stand up Stand up for your rights Get up, stand up Don't give up the fight.

The good times of today, are the sad thoughts of tomorrow.
