“Yoko and I are quite willing to be the world’s clowns,” he said, “if by so doing it will do some good. I know I’m one of these ‘famous personalities.’ For reasons only known to themselves, people do print what I say. And I’m saying peace. We’re not pointing a finger at anybody. There are no good guys and bad guys. The struggle is in the mind. We must bury our own monsters and stop condemning people. We are all Christ and we are all HitIer. We want Christ to win. We’re trying to make Christ’s message contemporary. What would he have done if he had advertisements, records, films, TV and newspapers? Christ made miracles to tell his message. Well, the miracle today is communications, so let’s use it.” J.LENNON

“People criticized us for spending all that money protesting about Biafra and suchlike, when the money would have been more useful had I sent it directly there. But I’d already done that. And I have always respected the sentiments behind that kind of charity and I always will do. But it doesn’t solve the problem…. In a capitalist society like ours, people are much more effective if they have money. And we have. Our name is known and so we’re using our fame and our money to advertise for peace. Some people say that that is a pretentious ambition but we feel that the big problems are where you’ve got to start …. “J.LENNON

“There’s no cause worth losing your life for, there isn’t any path worth getting shot for and you can do better by moving on to another city …. Don’t move about if it aggravates the pigs, and don’t get hassled by the cops, and don’t play their games. I know it’s hard, Christ you know it ain’t easy, you know how hard it can be man, so what?-Everything’s hard-it’s better to have it hard than to not have it at am” John worked himself up into a fury: “Entice them, entice them! Con them-you’ve got the brains, you can do it. You can make it, man! We can make it-together. We can get it-together!”LENNON
