He didn't say it. The quote is made up, appeared on tumblr and then spread around Facebook.

For one thing, he didn't have a relationship with Julia when he was five.

And I neeeeeeeeed her all the time

Actually, I'm not so sure. Lennon was moved to Mimi at the age of five (if I remember correctly), so the dates aren't automatically wrong. Any other proof? Because the quote sounds perfectly Lennonesque to me.

As if it matters how a man falls down.'

Got it/one - from hereGoogle search was the answer bringing these results.

And from that conversation here is one site that says its not a John quote.

I'm pretty sure that this quote is fake.  I was seeing it online years before it started being attributed to John Lennon.

Anyway, I hope that it's not real because it's a very stupid thing to say.

I wasn't sure where to post this, so this thread is probably the best place.
