Other quotes by John Lennon

You either get tired fighting for peace, or you die.

Guilt for being rich, and guilt thinking that perhaps love and peace isn't enough and you have to go and get shot or something.

Rituals are important. Nowadays it's hip not to be married. I'm not interested in being hip.

Will the people in the cheaper seats clap your hands? And the rest of you, if you'll just rattle your jewelry.

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?
