John Lennon: Oct 9 1940 – Dec 8 1980

December 8, 2010

‘I talked to Yoko the day after he was killed and the first thing she said was, “John was really fond of you.” The last telephone conversation I had with him we were still the best of mates. He was always a very warm guy, John. His bluff was all on the surface. He used to take his glasses down, those granny glasses, and say, “It’s only me.” They were like a wall, you know? A shield. Those are the moments I treasure’ ~ Paul McCartney


‘There are two basic motivating forces: fear and love. When we are afraid, we pull back from life. When we are in love, we open to all that life has to offer with passion, excitement, and acceptance. We need to learn to love ourselves first, in all our glory and our imperfections. If we cannot love ourselves, we cannot fully open to our ability to love others or our potential to create. Evolution and all hopes for a better world rest in the fearlessness and open-hearted vision of people who embrace life.’ ~ John Lennon

‘The thing the sixties did was to show us the possibilities and the responsibility that we all had. It wasn’t the answer. It just gave us a glimpse of the possibility.’ ~ John Lennon

‘Music is everybody’s business. It’s only the publishers who think people own it.’ ~ John Lennon

‘I’m not afraid of death because I don’t believe in it. It’s just getting out of one car, and into another.’ ~ John Lennon
