Here are a few quotes by John Lennon from John Lennon Quotes

Love is the flower you’ve got to let grow.

Reality leaves a lot to the imagination.

Life is what happens while you are busy making other plans.

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

Time you enjoy wasting, was not wasted.

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

You’re all beautiful and you’re all geniuses.

Imagine lyrics are one of my favorites

Imagine all the people sharing all the world.
You may say I’m a dreamer but I’m not the only one.
I hope someday you’ll join us and the world will live as one.
John Lennon

Thank you for the challenge, it brought to mind a bit of a family laugh! As a nearly four year old, Can't Buy Me Love was apparently my most favourite song and I would sing it loudly on the bus with my Nan as she took me about London! Unfortunately I didn't quite have the words right and it came out as "Can't Bummy Love"!! I have never been allowed to live it down!!!

Hopefully, if I have done this right this is the link to my page in the gallery!!

Thank you so much for this fabulous challenge. Had to choose "Imagine" as well. It is one of my all time favorite songs. I hope that is OK.

Thank you for the challenge Grace and all the wonderful quotes. I was going to create a Beatles tribute, then I came across this photo that reminded me of one of my cats that would always jump in my suitcase every time I tried to pack to go somewhere. I love this quote by John Lennon and it fit perfectly.
