Quotes on Peace from John Lennon
Since John Lennon was a major inspiration to me in bringing about this project, I would like to dedicate this page in his honour. I’ve include his music with songs and his quotes on peace that have inspired me along the way. Please check out the links to see music, quotes and links from other inspiring musicians, authors and visionaries.
John Lennon Love and Peace Quotes.
“I really thought that love would save us all.”
“Everything is clearer when you’re in love.”
“If everyone demanded peace instead of another television set, then there’d be peace.”
“Everybody’s talking about peace, but nobody does anything about it in a peaceful way.”
“I think if you get down to basics, whatever the problem is, it’s usually to do with love. So I think ‘All You Need is Love’ is a true statement. I’m not saying, ‘All you have to do is…’ because ‘All You Need’ came out in the Flower Power Generation time. It doesn’t mean that all you have to do is put on a phoney smile or wear a flower dress and it’s gonna be alright. Love is not just something that you stick on posters or stick on the back of your car, or on the back of your jacket or on a badge. I’m talking about real love, so I still believe that. Love is appreciation of other people and allowing them to be. Love is allowing somebody to be themselves and that’s what we do need.”
“We live in a world where we hide to make love! While violence is committed in broad daylight.”
“Violence begets violence, you know. And you can’t kill off all the violent people or all the murderers. We’d have to kill off the government.”
“Love is like a flower, give it time and it will grow”
“Love is a promise, love is a souvenir, once given never forgotten, never let it disappear.”
“You are all geniuses, and you are all beautiful. You don’t need anyone to tell you who you are. You are what you are. Get out there and get peace, think peace, live peace, and breathe peace, and you’ll get it as soon as you like.”
“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 on watering it. You’ve got to really look after it and nurture it.”
“You either get tired fighting for peace, or you die.”
“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.”
