John Lennon Quotations

Guest Author - Danielle Hollister

John Lennon 1940-1980, British Rock Musician
  • "Lots of people who complained about us receiving the MBE received theirs for heroism in the war --for killing people. We received ours for entertaining other people. I'd say we deserve ours more. "
  • " The more I see the less I know for sure. "
  • " Christianity will go. It will vanish and shrink. I needn't argue with that; I'm right and I will be proved right. We're more popular than Jesus now; I don't know which will go first -- rock and roll or Christianity. "
  • " 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? "

    Greeting the Beatles at the Paramount...
  • " The worst drugs are as bad as anybody's told you. It's just a dumb trip, which I can't condemn people if they get into it, because one gets into it for one's own personal, social, emotional reasons. It's something to be avoided if one can help it. "
  • " If being an egomaniac means I believe in what I do and in my art or my music, then in that respect you can call me that I believe in what I do, and I'll say it. "
  • " Love is a promise, love is a souvenir, once given never forgotten, never let it disappear. "
  • " We've got this gift of love, but 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 watering it. You've got to really look after it and nurture it. "
  • " You have to be a bastard to make it, and that's a fact. And the Beatles are the biggest bastards on earth. "
  • " God is a concept by which we measure our pain. I resent performing for frisking idiots who don't know anything. "
  • " I've had the boyhood thing of being Elvis. Now I want to be with my best friend, and my best friend's my wife. Who could ask for anything more? "

    Imagine: John Lennon
  • " My defenses were so great. The cocky rock and roll hero who knows all the answers was actually a terrified guy who didn't know how to cry. Simple. "
  • " Jesus was all right, but his disciples were thick and ordinary. It's them twisting it that ruins it for me. "
  • " We're more popular than Jesus Christ now. I don't know which will go first; rock and roll or Christianity. "
  • " Life is what happens while you're busy making other plans. "
  • " Our society is run by insane people for insane objectives. I think we're being run by maniacs for maniacal ends and I think I'm liable to be put away as insane for expressing that. That's what's insane about it. "
  • " Rituals are important. Nowadays it's hip not to be married. I'm not interested in being hip. "
  • " I don't care too much for money, money can't buy me love. "

    The Beatles - Abbey Road
  • " The pressures of being a parent are equal to any pressure on earth. To be a conscious parent, and really look to that little being's mental and physical health, is a responsibility which most of us, including me, avoid most of the time because it's too hard. All we are saying is give peace a chance... "
  • " Imagine all the people living life in peace. You may say I'm a dreamer, but I'm not the only one. I hope someday you'll join us, and the world will be as one. "
  • " You either get tired fighting for peace, or you die. "
  • " And so this is Xmas for black and for white, for yellow and red, let's stop all the fight. "
  • " Reality leaves a lot to the imagination. "
  • " He didn't come out of my belly, but my God, I've made his bones, because I've attended to every meal, and how he sleeps, and the fact that he swims like a fish because I took him to the ocean. I'm so proud of all those things. But he is my biggest pride. "

    Portrait of an Era IV

  • " There's nothing you can know that isn't known. "
  • " 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. "
  • " We were all on this ship in the sixties, our generation, a ship going to discover the New World. And the Beatles were in the crow's nest of that ship. "
  • " When I hold you in my arms and I feel my finger on your trigger I know no one can do me no harm because happiness is a warm gun. Woman is the Nigger of the World. "
  • " Work is life, you know, and without it, there's nothing but fear and insecurity. "
  • " I get by with a little help from my friends " John Lennon
  • " Music is everybody's possession. It's only publishers who think that people own it. "
  • " Love is a promise, love is a souvenir, once given never forgotten, never let it disappear. "
  • " I remember a time when everybody I loved hated me because I hated them. - Letter to Stuart Sutcliffe circa 1960 "
  • " Love is the flower you've got to let grow. "
  • " All you need is love! "
  • " The pressures of being a parent are equal to any pressure on earth. To be a conscious parent, and really look to that little being's mental and physical health, is a responsibility which most of us, including me, avoid most of the time because it's too hard."
