Happy Birthday John Lennon!
With Occupy Wall Street
slowly quickly turning into Occupy America, it seems just that we honor John Lennon’s birthday with a tribute of his quotes and solo songs. John said it then and I am sure he would say it now if he were here, “Peace, Love and Power to the People”.
Yoko Ono on Occupy Wallstreet:
“I am now in London, going from here to several countries before the end of this year. I love ‘Occupy Wall Street’! John is sending his smile to ‘Occupy Wall Street’. I am sending my love to ‘Occupy Wall Street’. We are all working together. You are letting the world know that American activists are doing this. That gives them inspiration and encouragement. That is very important now for the United States and the world. As John said, “One hero cannot do it. Each one of us have to be heroes.” And you are. Thank you…”
“I think our society is run by insane people for insane objectives. I think we’re being run by maniacs for maniacal ends and I think I’m liable to be put away as insane for expressing that. That’s what’s insane about it…“
“If everyone demanded peace instead of another television set, then there’d be peace.“
“I’m not claiming divinity. I’ve never claimed purity of soul. I’ve never claimed to have the answers to life. I only put out songs and answer questions as honestly as I can… But I still believe in peace, love and understanding. “
“You either get tired fighting for peace, or you die. “
Happy 71st Birthday John!!!
