Inside the Mind of John Lennon

435px-John_Lennon_Imagine_1971Always remember this: “A kiss will never miss, and after many kisses a miss becomes a misses.

……

Being honest may not get you many friends but it’ll get you the right ones.
– John Lennon
……

“Count your age by friends, not
years. Count your life by smiles, not
tears.”
― John Lennon

All we are saying is give peace a chance.

Imagine there’s no heaven,

its easy if you try,

No hell below us,

Above us only sky

This is such a beautiful song, so idealistic and pure.

But does John Lennon himself, believe in a non-materialistic world?
“Imagine no possession
Imagine if you can?”

But apparently John Lennon’s Dakota apartment in Mahattan was full of fur coats. The room  was kept specially chilled to maintain their beauty and usefulness.

Christianity will go.  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 Jeuss now; I don’t know which will go first – rock and roll or Christianity. (Interview with the Evening Standard – 4 March 1966.

I’m not saying that we’re better or greater, or comparing us with Jesus Christ as a person, or God as a thing, or whatever it is.  I just said what I said, and it was wrong, or it was taken wrong. And now it’s all this.
– John Lennon clarifying his original statement about “We’re more popular than Jesus” statement

Reality leaves a lot to the imagination.

– John Lennon

The thing the Sixties did was to show us the possibilities and the responsibility that we all had. It wasn’t the answer, it just gave us a glimpse of the possibility.

You have to be a bastard to make it, and that’s a fact.  And the Beatles are the biggest bastards on Earth.
