George Harrison
Do what you want to do,
And go where you're going to.
Think for yourself
'Cause I won't be there with you.
Harrison quotes
It just annoyed me that people got so into the Beatles. "Beatles, Beatles, Beatles." It's not that I don't like talking about them. I've never stopped talking about them. It's "Beatles this, Beatles that, Beatles, Beatles, Beatles, Beatles." Then in the end, it's like "Oh, sod off with the Beatles," you know?
Harrison
I had no ambition when I was a kid other than to play guitar and get in a rock 'n' roll band. I don't really like to be the guy in the white suit at the front. Like in the Beatles, I was the one who kept quiet at the back and let the other egos be at the front.




Harrison George quotes
I really want to see you, Really want to be with you, Really want to see you lord, But it takes so long, my lord.
Harrison George
You can be standing right in front of the truth and not necessarily see it, and people only get it when they’re ready to get it.
George Harrison quotes
Little darling
I feel that ice is slowly melting
Little darling
It seems like years since it's been clear
Here comes the sun...
George Harrison
All religions are branches of one big tree. It doesn't matter what you call Him just as long as you call. Just as cinematic images appear to be real but are only combinations of light and shade, so is the universal variety a delusion. The planetary spheres, with their countless forms of life, are naught but figures in a cosmic motion picture. One's values are profoundly changed when he is finally convinced that creation is only a vast motion picture and that not in, but beyond, lies his own ultimate reality.
Harrison George quotes
Rap music is just computerised crap. I listen to Top of the Pops and after three songs I feel like killing someone.
Harrison
If everybody who had a gun just shot themselves there wouldn’t be a problem.
Harrison George
...we're dead...
George Harrison
If I grow up I'll be a singer, wearing rings on every finger
Not worrying what they or you say, I'll live and love and maybe someday
Who knows baby
you may comfort me.




George Harrison quotes
If there's a God, I want to see Him. It's pointless to believe in something without proof, and Krishna consciousness and meditation are methods where you can actually obtain God perception. In that way you can see, hear and play with God. Perhaps this may sound weird, but God is really there next to you.
George Harrison
He was annoyed 'cause I didn't say that he'd written one line of this song "Taxman." But I also didn't say how I wrote two lines of "Come Together" or three lines of "Eleanor Rigby," you know? I wasn't getting into any of that. I think, in the balance, I would have had more things to be niggled with him about than he would have had with me!
Harrison quotes
I felt in love, not with anything or anybody in particular but with everything.
Harrison George
I don't know how you were diverted
You were perverted too.
I don't know how you were inverted
No one alerted you.
Harrison George quotes
I look at the world and I notice it’s turning.
While my guitar gently weeps.
With every mistake we must surely be learning,
Still my guitar gently weeps.
George Harrison
I'd thought it would be something like King's Road [London], only more. Somehow I expected them all to own their own little shops. I expected them to all be nice and clean and friendly and happy ... (on the contrary, I discovered them to be) hideous, spotty little teenagers.
George Harrison quotes
Something in the way she moves attracts me like no other lover.
George Harrison
That's what the whole Sixties Flower-Power thing was about: 'Go away, you bunch of boring people.'
Harrison George
I don't know why nobody told you how to unfold your love
I don't know how someone controlled you
They bought and sold you.
