Simply mention your favorite quotes by the 4 lads.

Here are some of mine....

a-hard-days-night-john-6~“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.” (bluntly put, lennnnon:)

a-hard-days-night-paul-11~“We didn't all get into music for a job! We got into music to avoid a job, in truth - and get lots of girls.” (haha, knew it!)

a-hard-days-night-george-4~“There's high, and there's high, and to get really high--I mean so high that you can walk on the water, that high-that's where I'm going'." (the picture smiley of him pretty much fits this)

a-hard-days-night-ringo-10~"Everything government touches turns to crap." (PREACH IT!)

“As far as I’m concerned, there won’t be a Beatles reunion as long as John remains dead.” – George Harrison

"I didn't like the look of Rory's drummer myself. He looked the nasty one, with his little grey streak of hair. But the nasty one turned out to be Ringo, the nicest of them all." – George Harrison

Plus all the witty answers they gave to stupid questions in A Hard Day's Night.

I'd like to be, under the sea, in an octopus's garden, with you.

"We've started a campaign of our own to stamp out Detroit!"

"If I'd said that television was more popular than the Beatles, I would've gotten away with it."

"Gentlemen, you've just recorded your first Number One record!"

"To the toppermost of the poppermost!"

I just want to play. I’d like to think I could work opposite Sinatra, B.B. King, the Beatles, or a polka band... - Jazz musician Rahsaan Roland Kirk, 1967

"But if I were really dead, I would be the last to know" - Paul

"I'm a tidy sort of bloke. I don't like chaos. I kept records in the record rack, tea in the tea caddy, and pot in the pot box." - George

And one that's a bit sad:

"I consider that my work won't be finished until I'm dead and buried, and I hope that's a long long time." - John, December 8 1980

That's the day he was murdered. Unfortunately, it wasn't a long time at all (although I suppose he was cremated, not buried, but that's beside the point)

"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." - Paul

I like that quote. It shows that even after what happened during the break-up of The Beatles, they still managed to stay friends (that is, assuming this was post-Beatles. I can't find the date)

I just copypasted these off my FB so forgive me if they've been posted xD

 

"I'd like to end up sort of unforgettable."

"I like Beethoven.  Especially the poems."

"I've never really done anything to create what has happened. It creates itself. I'm here because it happened. But I

didn't do anything to make it happen apart from saying 'Yes'"

"Tomorrow Never Knows."

"I hope the fans will take up meditation instead of drugs."

…"Peace and love."

–Ringo Starr

"Ringo was the cocky one at the back; and with the way he looked, with that grey streak in his hair and

half a grey eyebrow and a big nose, he looked the real tough guy. But it probably only took a half hour to realize it was actually… Ringo!"

"I'm a tidy sort of bloke. I don't like chaos. I kept records in the record rack, tea in the tea caddy, and pot in the pot box."

–George Harrison

"If slaughterhouses had glass walls, everyone would be a vegetarian."

"We were a pretty fucking great group, weren't we?!"

"I am alive and well and unconcerned about the rumors of my death. But if I were dead, I would be the last to know."

"The things is, we're all really the same person. We're just four parts of the one."

–Paul McCartney

"The time you enjoy wasting is not wasted."

"You have to be a bastard to make it, and that's a fact. The Beatles are the biggest bastards on Earth."

"Life is what happens to you while you're busy making other plans."

"What does it mean when a person is such a pacifist that they get shot? I can never

understand that."

"You're all geniuses, and you're 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, and live peace and breathe peace, and you'll get it as soon as you like."

"I consider that my work won't be finished until I'm dead and buried, and I hope that's a long

long time." (December 1980 ;___;)

"I am going into an unknown future, but I'm still all here, and still while there's life, there's hope."

(December 1980 </3)

–John Lennon

"I'd like to end up sort of unforgettable."

Not if someone mentioned it, sorry, I'm too lazy to read through, but...

 

John Lennon: (When asked, How do you feel about teenagers imitating you with Beatle wigs?) They are not imitating us, because we don't wear Beatle wigs.

 

Paul McCartney: (When asked, The French have not made their mind up about the Beatles. What do you think of them?) Oh, we like the Beatles, they're great.

 

George Harrison: (When asked about the name of their haircuts) I call it Arthur.

 

Ringo Starr: (When asked what he thought about their airliner's smoking engine as it landed) Beatles, women and children first!

 

These are explains for each Beatle, I got them from (even though I've read them before): http://www.movietome.com/peopl.....rivia.html.

If those truly were his last words, that is now my favorite Beatle quote of all time. Thanks, Sunii.

To the fountain of perpetual mirth, Let it roll for all its worth.

Will never be sure what his last words were, but this seems like a good possibility, I just wish we knew for sure. a-hard-days-night-john-1

The song "Imagine" has amazing lyrics. Even thought I'm a complete christian, I could feel a little sympathy for the first part of the song.
