John Lennon

Was an absolute idealistic dreamer. Here are interesting parts of the book Lennon Remembers, an interview with him by Rolling stone.

1. Introversion

“I can’t take all that I need to go home, I need to have a look at the grass. I’m always writing about my English garden. I need the trees and the grass; I need to go into the country, because I can’t stand too much people.”

2. Feeling

“They can’t feel; I’m the one that’s feeling, because I’m the one expressing.”

3. Intuitive thoughts

“Pain is the pain we go through all the time. You’re born in pain. Pain is what we’re in most of the time. And I think the bigger the pain, the more gods we need.”

4. Deep, true love

“There is no reason on earth why I should be without her (Yoko). There is nothing more important than our relationship, nothing. And we dig being together all the time. And both of us could survive apart, but what for? I’m not going to sacrifice love, real love, for any fuckin’ whore or any friend, or any business, because in the end you’re alone at night. (…) I’ve been through it all and nothing works better than to have somebody you love hold you.”

5. Business 

“ I got nervous because some business man wants to see me, it’s going to be business and business makes me nervous.”

6. Being different and misunderstood

“You know, these people like Eastman and Dick James and people like that, think that I am an idiot. They really can’t see me; they think I’m some kind of guy who got struck lucky, a pal of Paul’s or something. They’re so fuckin’ stupid they don’t know.”
