George Harrison quotes

“Love one another.” (last words)

“I think people who can truly live a life in music are telling the world, "You can have my love, you can have my smiles. Forget the bad parts, you don't need them. Just take the music, the goodness, because it's the very best, and it's the part I give”

“When you've seen beyond yourself, then you may find, peace of mind is waiting there.”

“Try to realize it's all within yourself no one else can make you change, and to see you're only very small and life flows on within you and without you.”

“As long as you hate, there will be people to hate.”

“With our love, we could save the world.”

“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'.” 

"I felt in love, not with anything or anybody in particular but with everything." (of first taking LSD) 

“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.”

“They used us as an excuse to go mad and then blamed it on us. Gandhi says create and preserve the image of your choice. The image of my choice is not Beatle George - those who want that can go and see Wings. Why live in the past? Be here now.”

“It is one of our perennial problems, whether there is actually a God. From the Hindu point of view each soul is divine. All religions are branches of one big tree. It doesn't matter what you call Him just as long as you call. Just as cinematic images appear to be real but are only combinations of light and shade, so is the universal variety a delusion. The planetary spheres, with their countless forms of life, are naught but figures in a cosmic motion picture. One's values are profoundly changed when he is finally convinced that creation is only a vast motion picture and that not in, but beyond, lies his own ultimate reality.” 

“I picture John physically as someone youthful who made a lot, but I feel him more as an energy, more metaphysically.”

“The thing that pleases me the most about it is that young people like it. It's given kids from 6 to 16 an alternate view of music to what's been available for the past 20 years.”

"Try to realize it's all within yourself no one else can make you change, and to see you're only very small and life flows on within you and without you."

"You can be standing right in front of the truth and not necessarily see it, and people only get it when they’re ready to get it. "

"If there's a God, I want to see Him. It's pointless to believe in something without proof, and Krishna consciousness and meditation are methods where you can actually obtain God perception. In that way you can see, hear and play with God. Perhaps this may sound weird, but God is really there next to you."

For all you sync heads and music lovers out there,just a reminder that "It's Not Night: It's Space" need just under $1000 in 5 days to get their first album recorded. So go here to throw your spare change at them -
