Happy Belated Birthday John!

I forgot that last Friday was John Lennon's 75th birthday. So...wherever you are, if you're anywhere, and even if you're not anywhere...happy birthday, John! You had a profound positive influence on my life. For that I thank you.

"Trying to please everybody is impossible. If you did that, you'd end up in the middle with on one liking you. You've just got to try to make a decision about what you think is your best and do it."

"Only by trying on other people's clothes do we discover what size we are."

"You don't need anybody to tell you who you are. You are what you are."

"Nothing is real and nothing to get hung about."

"Produce your own dream. It's quite possible to do anything, but not if you put it on leaders and the parking meters. Don't expect Carter or Reagan or John Lennon or Yoko Ono or Bob Dylan or Jesus Christ to come and do it for you. You have to do it yourself."

-- John Lennon
