Is there a lyric from the Beatles you use as a motto or a rule to live by?

 

I think I have 3. 1) "Living is easy with eyes closed": When I want to ignore reality, I always repeat it to myself.   2)  "Even those tears, I Me Mine" I think of it when I want to be selfish or feel self-pity.   3) "Tomorrow might rain, so today I'll Follow The Sun",  I think of it when I'm truly sad, I say it to go on.

 

Mh. Interesting enough. the 3 were written by a-hard-days-night-john-1, a-hard-days-night-george-2 and a-hard-days-night-paul-2

 

 

Here comes the sun….. Scoobie-doobie…… Something in the way she moves…..attracts me like a cauliflower… Bop. Bop, cat bop. Go, Johnny, Go. Beware of Darkness…  I believe in SH...

Good Day Sunshine;the lyrics to the song remind me to be positive.

Dear Prudence;i think of john singing "dear sunii". the whole song itself brings up my self-esteema-hard-days-night-george-3

Let it be;when i am in a sad situation, i just think of the song.a-hard-days-night-ringo-7

Turn off your mind, relax, and float downstream;useful when i am meditating, yea i know i'm such a hippie.a-hard-days-night-john-2

All You Need Is Love;pretty much my main lyric that i live by.a-hard-days-night-george-8

Nothing's gonna change my world;when i am frustrated, i think of the lyric.

It's getting better all the time... it couldn't get much worse. ya, whenever I think it just can't get no worse, I think of these lyrics.

And in the end, the love you take is equal to the love you make. A classic, but really true.

And not actually a Beatlessong: All things must pass. I always make plain to meself that everything must fade away. Sooner or later.

(Sorry for my horrible english, I'm from Germanya-hard-days-night-paul-3)

Of course there is "All You Need Is Love" That song is pretty much my philosophy on life.

"I Am The Walrus" because I'm crazy and refer to myself as "The Walrus"

"Yes It Is" because my baby did wear red a few days before she left me.

"I'm A Loser" because I am.

"Within You, Without You" The message is very true!

"I'm Looking Through You" You can't judge a book by it's cover, you gotta look through it to get it's true meaning.

"Love You To" Every verse is very true.

"Act Naturally" I am an actor and it comes naturally to me. Might have a slight advantage with me being a little skitzo.

And many, many more!

"The movement you need is on your shoulder." Hey Jude: Reminds me that the best is yet to come, and all the positivity I need in my life is on its way.

"Find me in my field of grass." Mother Nature's Son: Perhaps not a philosophy, but I love being outside and in nature- I'm a field-running fiend. It just reminds me where I belong- outside.

"Try to realize it's all within yourself- no one else can make you change. And to see you're really only very small and life flows on within you and without you." Within You Without You: Makes me humbler. To know that I'm alive now, but I won't be alive forever.

 

and finally…

"All the world is birthday cake, so take a piece but not too much!" It's All Too Much: Reminds me to watch my sweet-intake. a-hard-days-night-george-7 

I'm sure there are more, but this is my master list for now… but also, who can forget the ever-present "All You Need Is Love!"?

Tongue, lose thy light. Moon, take thy flight… see ya, George!

It's EAAASY from All You Need Is Love is something that I repeat to myself if I'm in a bad situation or if I'm forcing myself to do something that I might not want to do.

'I've got nothing to say, but it's okay' from Good Morning, Good Morning always works when I'm bored.

I always like to throw Lennon-isms or Dylan-isms into everyday conversation just to throw people off a little bit, just a line here or there like 'he rollarcoaster' from Come Together or 'you can tell by the way she smiiiiles' from the Dylan song Visions of Johanna.

"No-one I think is in my tree", because I really do feel like a freak much of the time

One day, a tape-op got a tape on backwards, he went to play it, and it was all "Neeeradno-undowarrroom" and it was "Wow! Sounds Indian!" -- Paul McCartney

"I get by With A Little Help From My Friends." Hey, you're friends'll always make you feel better.

 

"Get Back to where you once belonged." Stop and smell the roses for once. Be with the ones who love you.

"You're asking me will our love grow? I don't know, I don't know." Very useful when in an argument with your girlfriend.

It's possibly my favorite, because it never says love. See, I don't believe in love, and you can express your true feelings for someone by saying what's in this song. Very motivational.
