Week of February 26

One has to completely humiliate oneself to be what the Beatles were, and thatís what I resent.  I didnít know, I didnít foresee.  It happened bit by bit, gradually, until this complete craziness is surrounding you, and youíre doing exactly what you donít want to do with people you canít standóthe people you hated when you were ten.

John Lennon

I'm not gonna 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.

John Lennon

My role in society, or any artist 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.

John Lennon

The most beautiful emotion we can experience is the mystical.  It is the power of all true art and science.  He to whom this emotion is a stranger, who can no longer wonder and stand rapt in awe, is as good as dead.  To know that what is impenetrable to us really exists, manifesting itself as the highest wisdom and the most radiant beauty, which our dull faculties can comprehend only in their most primitive forms - this knowledge, this feeling, is at the center of true religiousness.  In this sense, and in this sense only, I belong to the rank of devoutly religious men.
