30 John Lennon Quotes About Life And Lessons To Inspire You

Life Lesson #1: Be Yourself

23. “A dream you dream alone is only a dream. A dream you dream together is reality.” – John Lennon

24. “You either get tired fighting for peace, or you die. Declare it. Just the same way we declare war. That is how we will have peace… we just need to declare it.” – John Lennon

25. “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.” – John Lennon

26. “There is an alternative to war. It’s staying in bed and growing your hair.” – John Lennon
