Happy 72nd birthday to one of the most absolutely influential people to ever exist: our home boy John Lennon. A brilliant singer and song-writer, there is at least one of song of his (or The Beatles) that we can all identify with. My personal favorites are Blackbird, In My Life, Hey Jude, Happy Christmas, and Help (okay, so that is a lot, and I could go on).
I hope you listen to some of his music today, and enjoy these quotes by him!
Life is what happens while you are busy making other plans.Â
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.Â
I'm not going to change the way I look or the way I feel to conform to anything. I've always been a freak. So I've been a freak all my life and I have to live with that, you know. I'm one of those people.Â
Time you enjoy wasting, was not wasted.Â
As usual, there is a great woman behind every idiot.
If everyone demanded peace instead of another television set, then there'd be peace.Â
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.Â
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.Â
When you're drowning, you don't say 'I would be incredibly pleased if someone would have the foresight to notice me drowning and come and help me,' you just scream.Â
