43 godine od smrti: Citati Johna Lennona kao vodič kroz život

Čovjek koji je osnovao jedan od najlegendarnijih bendova ikad, popularne The Beatles, jednako je poznat po svojim pjesama kao i po iznimnoj osobnosti te upečatljivim javnim istupima. Uz njegove odabrane citate podsjećamo sami sebe kako bolje živjeti i voljeti

John Lennon pripadao je generaciji glazbenika koji su prigrlili uloge društvenih i kulturnih influencera te glazbom mijenjali svijet. Među svim sanjarima, samo je nekolicina imala toliko snažnu moć privlačenja pažnje. John Lennon jednostavno je prirodno ili ciljano znao kako biti drugačiji, atraktivniji medijima i zanimljiv javnosti, a popularnost je nerijetko nastojao iskoristiti kako bi istaknuo svoju viziju boljeg svijeta.



Desetljećima nakon što su nam ga ‘ukrali’ John Lennon i dalje inspirira milijune diljem svijeta. Na današnji dan sjećamo se ovog glazbenog diva čija bezvremenska glazba i vizija boljeg svijeta i dalje živi. Uz ove odabrane citate podsjećamo sami sebe kako bolje živjeti i voljeti:

 

*****

“You may say I’m a dreamer, but I’m not the only one”

****

There are two basic motivating forces: fear and love. When we are afraid, we pull back from life. When we are in love, we open to all that life has to offer with passion, excitement, and acceptance.

 *****

Time you enjoy wasting, was not wasted.

 *****

If everyone demanded peace instead of another television set, then there’d be peace.

 *****

We live in a world where we have to hide to make love, while violence is practiced in broad daylight.

 *****

When I was 5 years old, my mother always told me that happiness was the key to life. When I went to school, they asked me what I wanted to be when I grew up. I wrote down ‘happy’. They told me I didn’t understand the assignment, and I told them they didn’t understand life.

Turn off your mind, relax, and float downstream.

 *****

I believe in everything until it’s disproved. So I believe in fairies, the myths, dragons. It all exists, even if it’s in your mind. Who’s to say that dreams and nightmares aren’t as real as the here and now? 

 *****

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.

  *****

Peace is not something you wish for; It’s something you make, something you do, something you are, and something you give away.

  *****

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.

  *****

When you do something beautiful and nobody noticed, do not be sad. For the sun, every morning is a beautiful spectacle and yet most of the audience still sleeps.

  *****

We need to learn to love ourselves first, in all our glory and our imperfections. If we cannot love ourselves, we cannot fully open to our ability to love others or our potential to create. Evolution and all hopes for a better world rest in the fearlessness and open-hearted vision of people who embrace life.

  *****

I’m not going to 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.

  *****

If everyone could just be happy with themselves and the choices people around them make, the world would instantly be a better place!

  *****

Declare it. Just the same way we declare war. That is how we will have peace… we just need to declare it.

  *****

Count your age by friends, not years. Count your life by smiles, not tears.

  *****

A dream you dream alone is only a dream. A dream you dream together is reality.

  *****

Being honest may not get you a lot of friends but it’ll always get you the right ones.

  *****

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

  *****

Everybody loves you when you’re six foot in the ground.

  *****

You don’t need anybody to tell you who you are or what you are. You are what you are!

  *****

Trying to please everybody is impossible – if you did that, you’d end up in the middle with nobody liking you. You’ve just got to make the decision about what you think is your best, and do it.

  *****

A mistake is only an error, it becomes a mistake when you fail to correct it.

  *****

Everything will be okay in the end. If it’s not okay, it’s not the end.

 *****
