John Lennon Quotes

This page is a collection of inspiring John Lennon Quotes.

I remember listening to John Lennon's music as a child and getting lost in the lyrics.  I couldn't understand all he was singing about at the time, but I still enjoyed the music.

Years later, I re-discovered The Beatles and John Lennon and his music took on a new life.  I was able to gain a new experience from the same songs.  I was introduced to ideas such as: the power of love over fear and choosing to live from a place of love when making decisions and interacting with others. 

The power of people to work together for a common good.  Alone we can accomplish only so much, but together we can accomplish anything. 

And lastly the idea of being more aware in everyday life.  Moments are passing and sometimes we need to gently remind ourselves that these moments will never be here again.  So take time to appreciate what we have and if there is somehting you don't like find a way to change it or make peace with it.

One of the great things about John Lennon's music is it can be enjoyed by people from all generations.  My grandparents, parents, nieces and nephews, can all enjoy it and appreciate it in their own way. 

Enjoy these inspirational John Lennon Quotes.

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

You may say I'm a dreamer,
but I'm not the only one.
I hope someday you'll join us.
And the world will live as one.

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.

Count your age by friends, not years.
Count your life by smiles, not tears.

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

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.

If everyone demanded peace
instead of another television set,
then there'd be peace.

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.”

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.

Love is like a flower-you've got to let it grow.

I'm not afraid of death because I don't believe in it.
It's just getting out of one car, and into another.

There's nothing new under the sun.
All the roads lead to Rome.
And people cannot provide it for you.
I can't wake you up.
You can wake you up.
I can't cure you. You can cure you.

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

Life is very short, and there's no time for fussing and fighting my friends.

Imagine there's no countries
It isn't hard to do
Nothing to kill or die for
And no religion too
Imagine all the people
Living life in peace.

You may say that I'm a dreamer
But I'm not the only one
I hope someday you'll join us
And the world will be as one.

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

It matters not who you love,
where you love,
why you love,
when you love
or how you love,
it matters only that you love.

Why in the world are we here?
Surely not to live in pain and fear.

We live in a world where we have to hide to make love,
while violence is practiced in broad daylight.

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

I’ve been through it all and nothing works better
than to have someone you love hold you.
