All things must pass: George Harrison (February 25 1943 – November 29 2001)

November 29, 2011


“The Beatles saved the world from boredom”~ George Harrison



“I think we shared a lot of tastes; cars and clothes – and women, obviously” ~ Eric Clapton on George Harrison



“I remember thinking I just want more. This isn’t it. Fame is not the goal. Money is not the goal. To be able to know how to get peace of mind, how to be happy, is something you don’t just stumble across. You’ve got to search for it.” ~ George Harrison



“He’d mortgaged his house to put up the money for this movie because he wanted to see it, which is still the most anyone’s paid for a cinema ticket” ~ Eric Idle on George’s financing Monty Python And The Holy Grail



“I think people who truly can live a life in music are telling the world, ‘You can have my love, you can have my smiles. Forget the bad parts, you don’t need them. Just take the music, the goodness, because it’s the very best, and it’s the part I give most willingly” ~ George Harrison



“It’s being here now that’s important. There’s no past and there’s no future. Time is a very misleading thing. All there is ever, is the now. We can gain experience from the past, but we can’t relive it; and we can hope for the future, but we don’t know if there is one.” ~ George Harrison

    George Harrison was undoubtedly the cleverest of the Beatles.
    He was also the most modest.
    He also collected a lot for charity.
    He appears to have been an extremely reliable friend and investor (sic. Python / Handmade films).
    Why Michael Abram tried to kill him was insane. Why they ever let Abrams out of the nut house is also insane.
    It was such a shame that a man of so many wonderful attributes was taken from us well before his time.
    We will always remember him.
