You have to be a bastard to make it, and that's a fact. And the Beatles are the biggest bastards on earth.BeatlesJohn Lennon
Imagine there's no countries
It isn't hard to do
Nothing to kill or die for
And no religion, too
Imagine no possessions
I wonder if you can
No need for greed or hunger
A brotherhood of man
Imagine all the people
Sharing all the world
You may say that I'm a dreamer
But I'm not the only one
Love is the flower you've got to let grow.LoveJohn Lennon
As usual, there is a great woman behind every idiot.WomenJohn Lennon

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.

Count your age by friends, not years.
Count your life by smiles, not tears.
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?Faith, ImaginationJohn Lennon
I'm not claiming divinity. I've never claimed purity of soul. I've never claimed to have the answers to life. I only put out songs and answer questions as honestly as I can ... But I still believe in peace, love and understanding.WritingJohn Lennon
I really thought that love would save us all.LoveJohn Lennon
Life is what happens to you while you're busy making other plans.LifeJohn Lennon - Beautiful Boy (Darling Boy), Album: Double Fantasy
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.Music, ChristianityJohn Lennon
