By saying inside everyone is love, isn't he telling people that love is real despite saying that we don't need anybody to tell us what is real?

Nothing is real! Paul is Dead!

Though I actually think he means that we're told what love is supposed to be and usually its inaccurate.  We don't need anyone to tell us because love is already inside us and we know how it's really supposed to be.

I've always loved zen-ness of this line  

"There is nothing either good or bad, but thinking makes it so"   William Shakespeare  

Which means that your own perspective can make something appear good or bad...not the thing itself.

 

I also love John's "Life is what happens to you while you're busy making other plans" which I often repeat to myself when I feel I should be doing something else. I think John pinched this from Robert Browning as I remember seeing a similar line.

 

I keep seeing this all over the internet but I'm pretty sure it's a fake quote...  “When I was five years old, my Mom told me that happiness was the key to life. When I went to school, they asked 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.”  It drives me mad when people repeat things without checking out the authenticity.   Oh and there's this one....

I say in speeches that a plausible mission of artists is to make people appreciate being alive at least a little bit. I am then asked if I know of any artists who pulled that off. I reply, 'The Beatles did'.

How old was Fyodor Dostoevsky when he came up with that quote?

Look, every month is the anniversary of something that the record company can repackage and resell to you in re-digified-nanofied-retromastered form for a luxury fee. "Here's the 47th-anniversary edition of the alternate take of From Me To You with John playing lead because George was off having a wee. Pre-order now on iTunes!" It's a con. But a brilliant one that keeps me in ruby-spangled codpieces and caviar hosiery.

                                                                                                                            John in his 2010 Vanity Fair interview just ahead of his 70th birthday...
