Best Quotes by John Lennon (Top 10)

  1. Count your age by friends, not years. Count your life by smiles, not tears.
  2. There are two basic motivating forces: fear and love. When we are afraid, we pull back from life. When we are in love, we open to all that life has to offer with passion, excitement, and acceptance. We need to learn to love ourselves first, in all our glory and our imperfections. If we cannot love ourselves, we cannot fully open to our ability to love others or our potential to create. Evolution and all hopes for a better world rest in the fearlessness and open-hearted vision of people who embrace life.
  3. 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?
  4. 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.
  5. As usual, there is a great woman behind every idiot.
  6. The more I see the less I know for sure.
  7. A dream you dream alone is only a dream. A dream you dream together is reality.
  8. There's nowhere you can be that isn't where you're meant to be...
  9. 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.
  10. If everyone demanded peace instead of another television set, then there'd be peace.
