Life is very short, and there's no time for fussing and fighting my friends— John Lennon
Thrilling Beatles Peace quotations
We all have Hitler in us, but we also have love and peace. So why not give peace a chance for once?
There's nowhere you can be that isn't where you're meant to be.
...We can work it out. Life is very short, and there's no time for fussing and fighting, my friend.
I am not the Beatles. I'm me. Paul isn't the Beatles...The Beatles are the Beatles. Separately, they are separate.
There is nothing conceptually better than rock 'n' roll.
No group, be it Beatles, Dylan or Stones, have ever improved on Whole Lot of Shaking for my money. Or maybe I'm like our parents: that's my period and I dig it and I'll never leave it.
One has to completely humiliate oneself to be what the Beatles were .
. . . It happened bit by bit, until . . . you're doing exactly what you don't want to do with people you can't stand -- the people you hated when you were ten.
We've been on our peace gig, as we call it, for a year solid.
And people say, 'Do you think it's having any effect?' I can't answer that. It's like asking me in the Cavern, 'Are you gonna make it?' In the back of my mind I thought, I'm gonna make it, but I couldn't lay it on the line. And I think that peace is more tangible than Beatles.
There's more attention paid to entertainers than ever and less that they have to say. Not that entertainers were ever a great beacon of knowledge to begin with, but at least when the Beatles were the leaders of the culture, they had a message. It was brief; it wasn't terribly complicated. "Give Peace a Chance." "All You Need is Love." But at least they were trying. At least they had grown.
