In a day, sometimes I feel so much love for the world, I think my heart is bursting. Sometimes,
I feel so scared, I want to shrink myself even further. I think that's what happened to us gods
and goddesses. Like the dinosaurs, we realized that it's too dangerous to be so large. So we
kept shrinking ourselves to what we are now. We might get even smaller. I see the sign in the
engineers making smaller gadgets, smaller and smaller. Pretty soon, our fingers will be too large
to operate them. So what are we doing? I trust in the human wisdom. We are incredibly
intelligent beings. So we might know something without thinking that we know... Well, even my
best friend didn't know until now that I was thinking of crazy things like this.
Yoko Ono

Remember, each one of us has the power to change the world.
Yoko Ono

I have a big job in addition to music: to keep his voice going.

Autumn passes and one remembers one's reverence.
Winter passes and one remembers one's perseverance.

True artists are prophets. I don't want to be that prophetic in that sense because it's so
lonely.

I don't know if I've learned so much from people as from events. Events are the best teacher
for us. You try to learn from people, there is always some bend to it.

At least I had that, one guy understood me.

minute I was a widow, I started to see what a test it is to be a widow in this society.
Yoko Ono

The opposite of love is fear, not hate.

so fast that nobody else can see them.

Never say goodbye,
You say tomorrow's another day,
All I know is we're here today.
I've got nightmares I could never share with you,
The kind that keeps me up all night.
So hold me tight till the room is light,
And tell me that it's all right.
Yoko Ono

Don't ever give up on life. Life can be so beautiful, especially after you've spent a lot of time
with it.

If your life changes, we can change the world, too.
Yoko Ono
