Citáty John Lennon


„War is over... If you want it.“

„if everyone could just be happy with themselves and the choices people around them make, the world would instantly be a better place!“


„I put things down on sheets of paper and stuff them in my pockets. When I have enough, I have a book.“

„You won't get anything unless you have the vision to imagine it“

„Eğer herkes başka bir televizyon seti yerine barış isteseydi o zaman barış olurdu.“

„A man travelling on a train - like you or I - to
Scotland, had two or two bad eggs in his pocket -
and you know - no one would sit by him.“
A Spaniard in the Works

„They want to hold onto something they never had in the first place. Anybody who claims to have some interest in me as an individual artist or even as part of the Beatles has absolutely misunderstood everything I ever said if they can't see why I'm with Yoko. And if they can't see that, they don't see anything. They're just jacking off to - it could be anybody. Mick Jagger or somebody else. Let them go jack off to Mick Jagger, okay? I don't need it.“

„Make your own dream.

That's the Beatles' story, isn't it? That's Yoko's story, that's what I'm saying now. Produce your own dream. If you want to save Peru, go save Peru. It's quite possible to do anything, but not to put it on the leaders and the parking meters. Don't expect Jimmy Carter or Ronald Reagan or John Lennon or Yoko Ono or Bob Dylan or Jesus Christ to come and do it for you. You have to do it yourself.

That's what the great masters and mistresses have been saying ever since time began. They can point the way, leave signposts and little instructions in various books that are now called holy and worshipped for the cover of the book and not for what it says, but the instructions are all there for all to see, have always been and always will be.

There's nothing new under the sun. All the roads lead to Rome. And people cannot provide it for you. I can't wake you up. You can wake you up. I can't cure you. You can cure you.“


„We all shine on... like the moon and the stars and the sun... we all shine on... come on and on and on...“

„Everything is clearer when you're in love.“

„There's nowhere you can be that isn't where you're meant to be...“

„Love is the Answer. What was the Question?“


„When his rolls royce was mobbed by fans the chauffeur said:
''do you want me to get them off the car?''
and Lennon replied: ''No - they paid for it, they can wreck it“

„She's well acquainted with the touch of the velvet hand like a lizard on the window-pane.“

„My defenses were so great. The cocky rock and roll hero who knows all the answers was actually a terrified guy who didn't know how to cry. Simple.“ John Lennon: In His Own Words

„You can manicure a cat but can you caticure a man?“ Skywriting by Word of Mouth and Other Writings
