It doesn't really matter what chords I play, what words I say or time of day it is, as it's only a Northern Song.

Anyway, there is one thing I have learned and that is not to dress uncomfortably, in styles which hurt: winklepicker shoes that cripple your feet and tight pants that squash your balls. Indian clothes are better.

I fell in love, not with anything or anybody in particular but with everything.

I think people who truly can live a life in music are telling the world, ‘You can have my love, you can have my smiles. Forget the bad parts, you don't need them. Just take the music, the goodness, because it's the very best, and it's the part I give most willingly.

With our love, we could save the world.

Hare Krishna, Peace and Love.

The world used us as an excuse to go mad.

The Beatles will go on and on.

Love one another.

Gossip is the Devil's radio.

I'm really quite simple. I don't want to be in the business full time, because I'm a gardener. I plant flowers and watch them grow. I don't go out to clubs. I don't party. I stay at home and watch the river flow.

I have suffered for this book; now it's your turn.

The Beatles will exist without us.

Your own space, man, it's so important. That's why we were doomed because we didn't have any. It is like monkeys in a zoo. They die. You know, everything needs to be left alone.

All I've got to be is be happy.

It's being here now that's important. There's no past and there's no future. Time is a very misleading thing. All there is ever, is the now. We can gain experience from the past, but we can't relive it; and we can hope for the future, but we don't know if there is one.

We were talking about the space between us all and the people who hide themselves behind a wall of illusion. Never glimpse the truth - then it's far too late when they pass away.

It's a thingy! A fiendish thingy!

All the world is birthday cake, so take a piece, but not too much.

If you don't know where you're going, any road'll take you there.

Life goes on within you and without you.

The biggest break in my career was getting into the Beatles in 1962. The second biggest break since then is getting out of them.

If everyone who had a gun just shot themselves, there wouldn't be a problem.

I wanted to be successful, not famous.

You do what you can--can't do much more than that.

Show me that I m everywhere and get me home for tea.

I'm sitting here doing nothing but ageing while my guitar gently weeps.

We were the Spice Boys.

Avant Garde is French for bullshit.

There's high, and there's high, and to get really high - I mean so high that you can walk on the water, that high-that's where I'm going.

It's all too much.

The only thing we really have to work at in this life is how to manifest love.

The nicest thing is to open the newspapers and not to find yourself in them.

The saddest thing was actually getting fed up with one another. It's like growing up in a family. When you get to a certain age, you want to go off and get your own girl and your own car, split up a bit.

As far as I'm concerned, there won't be a Beatles reunion as long as John Lennon remains dead.

Try to realize it's all within yourself, no one else can make you change, and to see you're only very small and life flows on within you and without you.

If you're listening, I'm the walrus, too.

Hippies are so phoney and fake.

What is life?

Gossip [is] the Devil's radio: Don't be a broadcaster.

America has everything, why should they want us.

It's all in the mind.

All things must pass.

When you've seen beyond yourself, then you may find, peace of mind is waiting there.

I was naive and thought we could express our feelings to each other- not suppress them and keep holding them back. Well, it was what I felt, and why should I be untrue to myself? I came to believe the importance that if you feel something strong enough then you should say it.

The Beatles saved the world from boredom.

Even if it's being a Beatle for the rest of my life, it's still only a temporary thing.

Sometimes I feel like I'm actually on the wrong planet. It's great when I'm in my garden, but the minute I go out the gate I think, ‘What the hell am I doing here?

As long as you hate, there will be people to hate.
