"No one, I think, is in my tree
I mean, it must be high or low
That is, you can't, you know, tune in, but it's alright
That is, I think it's not too bad"



 "I believe in everything until it's disproved. So I believe in fairies, the myths, dragons. It all exists, even if it's in your mind. 

Who's to say that dreams and nightmares aren't as real as the here and now? Reality leaves a lot to the imagination."



"You may say I'm a dreamer, but I'm not the only one. I hope some day you'll join us. And the world can live as one."



"Don't need a watch to waste your time, oh no, oh no."



"Instant Karma's gonna get you"



"She asked me to stay and she told me to sit anywhere
So I looked around and I noticed there wasn't a chair"



"All we are saying is give peace a chance."



"And so happy xmas

For black and for white

For yellow and red ones

Let's stop all the fight."



"Woman, I know you understand the little child inside the man."



"Love is real, real is love

Love is feeling, feeling love

Love is wanting to be loved

Love is touch, touch is love

Love is reaching, reaching love

Love is asking to be loved

Love is you, you and me

Love is knowing we can be

Love is free, free is love

Love is living, living love

Love is needing to be loved"



"Imagine there's no heaven

It's easy if you try

No hell below us

Above us only sky

Imagine all the people

Living for today..."



"Imagine there's no countries

It isn't hard to do

Nothing to kill or die for

And no religion too

Imagine all the people

Living life in peace..."



"Imagine no possessions

I wonder if you can

No need for greed or hunger

A brotherhood of man

Imagine all the people

Sharing all the world..."



"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."



 "You're just left with yourself all the time, whatever you do anyway. 

You've got to get down to your own God in your own temple. 

It's all down to you, mate."



"My role in society, or any artist's or poet's role, is to try and express what we all feel. 

Not to tell people how to feel. Not as a preacher, not as a leader, but as a reflection of us all."



"As usual, there is a great woman behind every idiot."



"You don't need anybody to tell you who you are or what you are. You are what you are!"



 "Surrealism had a great effect on me because then I realized that the imagery in my mind wasn't insanity. 

Surrealism to me is reality"



 "I'm not going to change the way I look or the way I feel to conform to anything. I've always been a freak. 

So I've been a freak all my life and I have to live with that, you know. I'm one of those people."



"Living is easy with eyes closed, misunderstanding all you see."



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




"So long ago. Was it in a dream? Was it just a dream? I know, yes I know. It seemed so very real, it seemed so real to me."
