Oct 9 - Post your favorite John Lennon lyric or quote
John Winston Lennon was born on October 9th 1940, during one of the worst bombing raids on the port city of Liverpool during World War II.

One of the more detailed accounts of John's early life is here:
http://fosterclub.com/funstuff/fam_fosterKids/johnLenno...

Born into a war, he cried out for peace (and rock-n-roll). He is sorely missed but gave us many lines of wit, wisdom and spiritual aspiration. Please share your favorites.

"..but if you want money for people with minds that hate
all I can tell you is brother you'll have to wait."

"Love is a promise, love is a souvenir, once given never forgotten, never let it disappear."

"Music is everybody's possession. It's only publishers who think that people own it."

"Our society is run by insane people for insane objectives. I think we're being run by maniacs for maniacal ends and I think I'm liable to be put away as insane for expressing that. That's what's insane about it. "

"Reality leaves a lot to the imagination."

4. From "How Do You Sleep," a big "screw-you" to England's Mike Love.
A pretty face may last a year or two
But pretty soon they'll see what you can do
The sound you make is muzak to my ears
You must have learned something in all those years.

5. "I don't believe in Beatles--
I just believe in me
Yoko and me
That's reality"
Still shattering, all these decades later
