Five or Ten Quotes from John Lennon...

Born on this day 73 years ago.

"It doesn't matter how long my hair is or what colour my skin is or whether I'm a woman or a man."
 
“As usual, there is a great woman behind every idiot.”

"I believe in God, but not as one thing, not as an old man in the sky. I believe that what people call God is something in all of us. I believe that what Jesus and Mohammed and Buddha and all the rest said was right. It's just that the translations have gone wrong.

“When I was 5 years old, my mother always told me that happiness was the key to life. When I went to school, they asked me what I wanted to be when I grew up. I wrote down ‘happy’. They told me I didn’t understand the assignment, and I told them they didn’t understand life.” 

"I'm not claiming divinity. I've never claimed purity of soul. I've never claimed to have the answers to life. I only put out songs and answer questions as honestly as I can... But I still believe in peace, love and understanding." 

“The more I see, the less I know for sure.”  

"I'm not going to change the way I look or the way I feel to conform to anything. I've always been a freak. So I've been a freak all my life and I have to live with that, you know. I'm one of those people."

“Limitless undying love which shines around me like a million suns it calls me on and on across the universe.”
 

"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."

“The more real you get the more unreal the world gets. ”
