Other quotes by John Lennon

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.

Possession isn't nine-tenths of the law. It's nine-tenths of the problem.

Part of me suspects that I'm a loser, and the other part of me thinks I'm God Almighty.

Everything is clearer when you're in love.

Jesus was all right, but his disciples were thick and ordinary. It's them twisting it that ruins it for me.
