Somebody said to me, ‘But the Beatles were anti-materialistic.’ That’s a huge myth. John and I literally used to sit down and say, ‘Now, let’s write a swimming pool.’

If we’d know we were going to be the Beatles, we’d have tried harder.

The biggest break in my career was getting into the Beatles in 1962. The second biggest break since then is getting out of them. George Harrison

They gave their money, and they gave their screams. But the Beatles kind of gave their nervous systems. They used us as an excuse to go mad, the world did, and then blamed it on us. George Harrison

I don’t think the Beatles were that good. I think they’re fine, you know. Ringo’s got the best backbeat I’ve ever heard… Paul is a fine bass player… but he’s a bit overpowering at times. George Harrison

With the Beatles, we’d been very spoiled because we had George Martin who worked for the record label we were going to be signed to. That was very fortunate, because we grew together. Paul McCartney

What good are three Beatles without John? George Harrison

The Beatles exist apart from myself. I am not really Beatle George. Beatle George is like a suit or shirt that I once wore on occasion, and until the end of my life, people may see that shirt and mistake it for me. George Harrison

– McCartney

“I’d rather be a musician than a rockstar.” – Harrison

“One of my great memories of John is from when we were having some argument. I was disagreeing and we were calling each other names. We let it settle for a second and then he lowered his glasses and he said: ‘It’s only me.’ And then he put his glasses back on again. To me, that was John. Those were the moments when I actually saw him without the facade, the armor, which I loved as well, like anyone else. It was a beautiful suit of armor. But it was wonderful when he let the visor down and you’d just see the John Lennon that he was frightened to reveal to the world.”
– McCartney

“I’ll say it again: I love being in a band, I love playing with other human beings. I’ve never practiced drums unless there was another human being in the room. If you could play, I’d play with you all night. But if I’m just playing by myself, it gets boring pretty quick.”

– Starr

“If someone thinks that peace and love are just a cliché that must have been left behind in the ’60s, that’s a problem. Peace and love are eternal.”

“It’s being here now that’s important. There’s no past and there’s no future. Time is a very misleading thing. All there is ever, is the now. We can gain experience from the past, but we can’t relive it; and we can hope for the future, but we don’t know if there is one.”

“I can see the Beatles sticking together forever, really. We’ve been together a long time.”

– Harrison in 1969

– Starr

“We laughed a lot. That’s one thing we forgot about for a few years – laughing. When we went through all the lawsuits, it looked as if everything was bleak, but when I think back to before that, I remember we used to laugh all the time.”

– Harrison

“I go to restaurants and the groups always play ‘Yesterday.’ I even signed a guy’s violin in Spain after he played us ‘Yesterday.’ He couldn’t understand that I didn’t write the song. But I guess he couldn’t have gone from table to table playing ‘I Am The Walrus.'”

– Lennon

“Sometimes Paul would make us do these really fruity songs. I mean, my god, ‘Maxwell’s Silver Hammer’ was so fruity.”

– Harrison

“Mahatma Gandhi and Martin Luther King are great examples of fantastic nonviolents who died violently. I can never work that out. We’re pacifists, but I’m not sure what it means when you’re such a pacifist that you get shot. I can never understand that.”

– Lennon

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

– Lennon

“What I do is I look for the positive side. I’m the only guy who sat down with John and wrote all those songs. It’s me. (I’ve) got to pinch myself, I can’t believe it. I just feel blessed to have known him and to have experienced his presence so intimately.”

– McCartney

Time you enjoy wasting, was not wasted.
John Lennon

A dream you dream alone is only a dream.

Imagine all the people living life in peace. 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 be as one.
John Lennon

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 watering it. You’ve got to really look after it and nurture it.
John Lennon

Guilt for being rich, and guilt thinking that perhaps love and peace isn’t enough and you have to go and get shot or something.
John Lennon

When you’ve seen beyond yourself, then you may find, peace of mind is waiting there.
George Harrison

You may say i’m a dreamer, but I’m not the only one
John Lennon

Love, Love, Love. All you need is love. Love is all you need.
John Lennon

When you’re drowning, you don’t say ‘I would be incredibly pleased if someone would have the foresight to notice me drowning and come and help me,’ you just scream.
John Lennon

“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. “ – john
