Some suggestions for you :

Music is everybody's possession. It's only publishers who think that people own it.

Life is what happens when you're busy making other plans.

I don't know which will go first - rock 'n' roll or Christianity.

Please don't spoil my day; I'm miles away and, after all, I'm only sleeping.

Slipping? We're bigger than Jesus.

When it gets down to having to use violence, then you are playing the system’s game. The establishment will irritate you – pull your beard, flick your face – to make you fight. Because once they’ve got you violent, then they know how to handle you. The only thing they don’t know how to handle is non-violence and humor.

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.

Sitting on a cornflake, waiting for the van to come.

I don't believe in killing whatever the reason!
