The photo is of the Imagine Peace Tower, lit by Yoko Ono for John. This is what she has to say about it…
I hope the IMAGINE PEACE TOWER will give light to the strong wishes of World Peace from all corners of the planet and give encouragement, inspiration and a sense of solidarity in a world now filled with fear and confusion.
I hope so too… Now, enjoy these 17 life inspiring quotes from John Lennon. In the comments below, let me know your favorite one and how it makes you feel

All we are saying is give peace a chance.
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 demanded peace instead of another television set, then there’d be peace.
I don’t believe in killing whatever the reason!
I believe in God, but not as one thing, not as an old man in the sky. 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.
Life is what happens while you are busy making other plans.
Yeah we all shine on, like the moon, and the stars, and the sun.
Time you enjoy wasting, was not wasted.
There’s nothing you can know that isn’t known.
Reality leaves a lot to the imagination.
Music is everybody’s possession. It’s only publishers who think that people own it.
My role in society, or any artist’s or poet’s role, is to try and express what we all feel. Not to tell people how to feel. Not as a preacher, not as a leader, but as a reflection of us all.
Our society is run by insane people for insane objectives. I think we’re being run by maniacs for maniacal ends and I think I’m liable to be put away as insane for expressing that. That’s what’s insane about it.
You don’t need anybody to tell you who you are or what you are. You are what you are!
You’re just left with yourself all the time, whatever you do anyway. You’ve got to get down to your own God in your own temple. It’s all down to you, mate.
Imagine all the people living life in peace. 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 be as one.
All you need is love.
