John Lennon Quote Night


Inspired by this weekend and going to Woodstock, there was this great posting in the museum of a huge quote by John Lennon.
Unfortunately, we could not take pictures, so I had to copy some of it into my blackberry.. so here are some others that I found that were amazing!

"The unknown is what it is. And to be frightened of it is what sends everybody scurrying around chasing dreams, illusions, wars, peace, love, hate, all that. Unknown is what it is. Accept that it's unknown, and it's plain sailing."

"When the power of love overcomes the love of power, then the world will be at peace." --it says that Jimi Hendrix said this, but it is also in the Woodstock music in John Lennon's speech so that sorta counts..

"The unknown is what it is. And to be frightened of it is what sends everybody scurrying around chasing dreams, illusions, wars, peace, love, hate, all that. Unknown is what it is. Accept that it's unknown, and it's plain sailing."

"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."

"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."

Love is a promise,
love is a souvenir,
once given never forgotten,
never let it disappear. ~John Lennon
