Top 10 John Lennon quotes

1. When I was 5 years old, my mother always told me that happiness was the key to life.
When I went to school, they asked me what I wanted to be when I grew up. I wrote down
"happy." They told me I didn't understand the assignment, and I told them they didn't
understand life.
John Lennon

2. 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

3. As usual, there is a great woman behind every idiot.
John Lennon

4. If everyone demanded peace instead of another television set, then there'd be peace.
John Lennon

5. Time you enjoy wasting, was not wasted.

6. 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

7. Count your age by friends, not years. Count your life by smiles, not tears.
John Lennon

8. 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

9. 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

10. Lots of people who complained about us receiving the MBE (Member of the Most Excellent
Order of the British Empire) received theirs for heroism in the war - for killing people. We
received ours for entertaining other people. I'd say we deserve ours more.
John Lennon
