As composer and singer, partly with The Beatles and partly as a solo artist, he is one of rock history’s most important figures. He was tragically murdered in 1980.
In this article we’ve decided to honour him and his wisdom by sharing 10 beautiful quotes, taken from interviews and song lyrics:
A dream you dream alone is only a dream. A dream you dream together is reality.
If someone thinks that love and peace is a cliche that must have been left behind in the Sixties, that’s his problem. Love and peace are eternal.
Everything is clearer and open when you’re in love.
Love is a promise, love is a souvenir, once given never forgotten, never let it disappear.
Love is the answer, and you know that for sure; Love is a flower, you’ve got to let it grow.
I’m not going to sacrifice love, real love, for any fuckin’ whore or any friend, or any business, because in the end you’re alone at night.
It matters not
Who you love
Where you love
Why you love
When you love
Or how you love
It matters only that you love.
I really thought that love would save us all.
There’s nothing you can do that can’t be done
Nothing you can sing that can’t be sung
Nothing you can say but you can learn how to play the game
It’s easy.. All you need is love.
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.
