John Lennon Quotes

August 15, 2010

Life is what happens while you are busy making other plans.
John Lennon

I believe in everything until it’s disproved. So I believe in fairies, the myths, dragons. It all exists, even if it’s in your mind. Who’s to say that dreams and nightmares aren’t as real as the here and now?
John Lennon

I believe in God, but not as one thing, not as an old man in the sky. I believe that what people call God is something in all of us. I believe that what Jesus and Mohammed and Buddha and all the rest said was right. It’s just that the translations have gone wrong.
John Lennon

Time you enjoy wasting, was not wasted.
John Lennon

Music is everybody’s possession. It’s only publishers who think that people own it.
John Lennon

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

A dream you dream alone is only a dream. A dream you dream together is reality.


George Entwistle, controller of BBC Knowledge commissioning, said: “This is a chance for viewers to enjoy some rare footage and fascinating insights into the career of the greatest pop group of all time.

yeah yeah, no Beatles is in that qoutes, but i just want to share the news. 🙂

The programmes will be screened across BBC2 and BBC4 and will include the TV premiere of the The Beatles: The First US Visit, in which cinematographers Albert and David Maysles charted the band’s arrival in America in 1964.

Of course there’s only two surviving Beatle, aside from Paul McCartney’s statement, here Ringo Starr’s thoughts on The Beatles on Rockband game console:

“The Beatles continue to evolve with the passing of time and how wonderful that The Beatles’ legacy will find its natural progression into the 21st century through the computerised world we live in. Let the games commence,” said Starr.

The big buzz nowadays about the Beatles is that the rights for their song to be used in digital game consoles has finally been won by RockBand creator Harmonix and MTV.

Here’s what Paul McCartney comment on the project:

“The project is a fun idea which broadens the appeal of The Beatles and their music,” McCartney said in a release. “I like people having the opportunity to get to know the music from the inside out.”

Personal note: Even though I just bought the Guitar Hero World Tour, I will buy the game once it come out.

Here’s another quote related to John Lennon’s shouting.

‘He was teaching me how to cut and eat steak, which was a mystery to me at four; how to stick the fork in and cut behind it, and that was how you got a piece in your mouth. I think it was that night when he got very upset with me, I think because of something I did very cheekily with the steak. He did wind up yelling at me very, very loudly to the point where he damaged my ear, and I had to go to the hospital.’

This is related to the new book about John Lennon that will be coming out soon.

John Lennon on Yelling at Sean

September 29, 2008

There are lots and lots of qoutes from John Lennon lately (negative) because of that forth coming new book about him entitled John Lennon: The Life‘. So here’s another quote from John Lennon about him shouting at Sean, when he was 4 years old.

‘I’m so sorry. I have a temper’ – John Lennon.

This may not be a quote a John Lennon Fan may want to hear but I have to include it here… This is from the Audio diary of JOhn Lennon.

“I was just remembering the time I had my hand on my mother’s t*t in 1 Blomfield Road.

“It was when I was about 14.

“I took a day off school, I was always doing that and hanging out in her house.

“We were lying on the bed and I was thinking ‘I wonder if I should do anything else?’”
