“There are two basic motivating forces: fear and love. When we are afraid, we pull back from life. When we are in love, we open to all that life has to offer with passion, excitement, and acceptance. We need to learn to love ourselves first, in all our glory and our imperfections. If we cannot love ourselves, we cannot fully open to our ability to love others or our potential to create. Evolution and all hopes for a better world rest in the fearlessness and open-hearted vision of people who embrace life.”—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
I’ve always loved this lesser known song. I like the idea of Paul & John singing a duet, because by this time (Let It Be) the Beatles were coming apart and Lennon & McCartney hardly ever shared lyrics like this. The songs were either a Paul song or John song. And the thought of these two guys in their younger days playing the parts of the song’s characters is oddly romantic.
“My role in society, or any artist’s or poet’s role, is to try and express what we all feel. Not to tell people how to feel. Not as a preacher, not as a leader, but as a reflection of us all.”—John Lennon
