Here are 30 words of wisdom from the great vocalist:

gaye-marvin-518545e9667ba“Nothing wrong with love,
If you want to love me just let yourself go”

“Two can make that wish come true”

“The many happy times we had,
Can really never outweigh the bad”

“Some songs will show which way to go,
If only you would listen”

“If you’re ever in trouble;
I’ll be there on the double”

“To share is precious, pure and fair”

“That every moment when I spent with you,
I treasure it like it was a precious jewel”

“People say believe half of what you see”

“What about this overcrowded land,
How much more abuse from man can she stand?”

“You were better to me than I’ve been to myself,
For me, there’s you and there ain’t nobody else,
I want to stop and thank you baby
I just want to stop and thank you baby”

“It seems the good die young”

“Why did the morning come so soon,
Love don’t need time (Girl) to make up its mind”

“I didn’t make it sugar, playin’ by the rules”

“There’s far too many of you dying,
You know we’ve got to find a way,
To bring some lovin’ here today”

“I believe a woman’s a man’s best friend,
So I’m gonna stick by her till the very end”

images“Oh, I got some memories to look back on,
Though they help me when you’re gone,
I’m well aware nothing can take the place of your being there”

“I ain’t got time to think about money,
Or what it can buy,
And I ain’t got time to sit down and wonder,
What makes a birdie fly”

“May love ever protect you,
may peace come into your life.
Always think of me the way I was.”

“Black and white, hot and cold, wrong and right, life and death,
Polarity, without the opposite we could never be”

“Everything I see is a crazy kind of mystery to me.
I’m flirting with the mother of insanity.”
