  • I believe in God, but not as one thing, not as an old man in the sky. I believe that what people call God is something in all of us. I believe that what Jesus and Mohammed and Buddha and all the rest said was right. It’s just that the translations have gone wrong.

  • Music is everybody’s possession. It’s only publishers who think that people own it.

  • The more I see the less I know for sure.
  • The postman wants an autograph. The cab driver wants a picture. The waitress wants a handshake. Everyone wants a piece of you.
  • The thing the sixties did was to show us the possibilities and the responsibility that we all had. It wasn’t the answer. It just gave us a glimpse of the possibility.
  • There’s nothing you can know that isn’t known.
  • Time you enjoy wasting, was not wasted.
  • We were all on this ship in the sixties, our generation, a ship going to discover the New World. And the Beatles were in the crow’s nest (nido de cuervos) of that ship.
  • We’ve got this gift of love, but love is like a precious plant. You can’t just accept it and leave it in the cupboard or just think it’s going to get on by itself. You’ve got to keep watering it. You’ve got to really look after it and nurture it.
