The Best John Lennon quotes

Time you enjoy wasting, was not wasted.

Reality leaves a lot to the imagination.
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.

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.

Declare it. Just the same way we declare war. That is how we will have peace… we just need to declare it.
