John Lennon quotes page 3

I've had cocaine, but I don't like it. The Beatles had lots of it in their day, but it's a dumb
drug, because you have to have another one 20 minutes later. Your whole concentration
goes on getting the next fix. Really, I find caffeine is easier to deal with.
John Lennon

Women should be obscene and not heard.
John Lennon

If someone thinks that love and peace is a cliche that must have been left behind in the
sixties, that's his problem. Love and peace are eternal.
John Lennon

If being an egomaniac means I believe in what I do and in my art or music, then in that
respect you can call me that. I believe in what I do, and I'll say it.
John Lennon

One thing you can't hide - is when you're crippled inside.
John Lennon

Limitless, undying love which shines about me like a million suns, it calls me on and on across
the universe.
John Lennon

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.
John Lennon

Life is very short, and there's no time for fussing and fighting my friends.
John Lennon

I'm not really a career person; I'm a gardener, basically.
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

The more I see, the less I know for sure.
John Lennon

You have to be a bastard to make it, and that's a fact. And the Beatles are the biggest
bastards on earth.
John Lennon

The basic thing nobody asks is why do people take drugs of any sort? Why do we have these
accessories to normal living to live? I mean, is there something wrong with society that's
making us so pressurized, that we cannot live without guarding ourselves against it?
John Lennon

I'm a dreamer but I'm not the only one.
John Lennon

We're trying to sell peace, like a product, you know, and sell it like people sell soap or soft
drinks. And it's the only way to get people aware that peace is possible, and it isn't just
inevitable to have violence.
John Lennon

Song writing is about getting the demon out of me. It's like being possessed. You try to go to
sleep, but the song won't let you. So you have to get up and make it into something, and then
you're allowed to sleep.
John Lennon

Love is like a precious plant. You can't just accept it and leave it in the cupboard or just think
it's going to get on by itself. You've got to keep on watering it. You've got to really look after
it and nurture it.
John Lennon

Living is easy with eyes closed.
John Lennon

For those of you in the cheap seats I'd like you to clap your hands to this one; the rest of
you can just rattle your jewellery!
John Lennon

Woman I can hardly express,
My mixed emotion at my thoughtlessness,
After all I'm forever in your debt,
And woman I will try express,
My inner feelings and thankfullness,
For showing me the meaning of succsess,
oooh well, well,
oooh well, well,

Woman I know you understand
The little child inside the man,
Please remember my life is in your hands,
And woman hold me close to your heart,
However, distant don't keep us apart,
After all it is written in the stars,
oooh well, well,
oooh well, well,

Woman please let me explain,
I never meant to cause you sorrow or pain,
So let me tell you again and again and again,
I love you (yeah, yeah) now and forever,
I love you (yeah, yeah) now and forever,
I love you (yeah, yeah) now and forever,
I love you (yeah, yeah)...
John Lennon
