John Lennon would have been 71 today. He and Yoko Ono would probably be quietly sitting in Central Park, still so much in love with each other, eating breakfast, drinking coffee, and watching the world go by.

I wonder what a guy like John Lennon would have to say about the state of the world today? It's not all that different from when he was around, is it?

In due respect, I am wearing glasses that look like his, but are not the same. I will continue to wear them all day. And I have been listening to his songs.

I've been posting since 3PM on Facebook John Lennon quotes. Here are some of them:(I'm putting 24, for every hour, there is a quote to think about.


The more I see the less I know for sure.

Life is what happens while you are busy making other plans.

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.

If being an egomaniac means I believe in what I do and in my art or music, then in that respect you can call me that... I believe in what I do, and I'll say it.

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.

Everything is clearer when you're in love.

A dream you dream alone is only a dream. A dream you dream together is reality.

You may say I'm a dreamer, but I'm not the only one.

All we are saying is Give Peace a Chance

The thing the sixties did was to show us the possibilities and the responsibility that we all had. It wasn't the answer. It just gave us a glimpse of the possibility.

There's nothing you can know that isn't known.

These critics with the illusions they've created about artists - it's like idol worship. They only like people when they're on their way up... I cannot be on the way up again.

Time you enjoy wasting, was not wasted.

We were all on this ship in the sixties, our generation, a ship going to discover the New World. And the Beatles were in the crow's nest of that ship.

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.

When you're drowning, you don't say 'I would be incredibly pleased if someone would have the foresight to notice me drowning and come and help me,' you just scream.

Yeah we all shine on, like the moon, and the stars, and the sun.

You don't need anybody to tell you who you are or what you are. You are what you are!

You have to be a b****** to make it, and that's a fact. And the Beatles are the biggest b******s on earth.

Imagine all the people living life in peace.

It doesn't matter how long my hair is or what colour my skin is or whether I'm a woman or a man.

Love is the answer, and you know that for sure; Love is a flower, you've got to let it grow.

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

You're just left with yourself all the time, whatever you do anyway. You've got to get down to your own God in your own temple. It's all down to you, mate.
Dear John Lennon,
         Even though we have never met, you have been a big part of my life.  I don't know if, from heaven, you are looking at us in shame or glory. But, let this be known: If in shame, then we know that your ideas of peace and love have not yet been distributed to all the world. But I think we are taking slow steps to achieve "all the people, living life in peace."
Happy Birthday John Lennon!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
I can't draw, so I decided to write. NONE OF HIS QUOTES BELONG TO ME.

I put the maturity content on because I swears in one quote, but I put it in *'s. But you never know what's gonna be blocked these days...
