John Lennon was a core member of The Beatles, a world-famous rock band from Liverpool, England.

Even after the Beatles disbanded, he continued his musical activities in solo,He is also famous for his wife, Yoko Ono, who is Japanese. I still have a lot of enthusiastic fans in Japan.

In this article, I would like to introduce some quotes from John Lennon, the lead singer and guitarist, as an artist.

First, let's start with a strange topic that is essential to the life of John Lennon.

 John Lennon receives a "golden egg" from aliens 

⭐Like a UFO you came to me, and blew away, life's misery ...

UFOのように君は私のところにやって来た。そして人生の不幸を吹き飛ばしてくれた。※「Out of the Blues, from the album Mind Games」より

⭐There's UFO's over New York, and I aint too ...

ニューヨークの上空にUFOがいたが、私はそんなに驚かなかった
※「Nobody Told Me, from the album Milk and Honey」より

(reference article*「Excite Japan Co., Ltd.エキサイトニュース2015年6月30日」「カラパイア2015年06月29日UFOについて語るジョン・レノンのラジオインタビューJohn Lennons ufo radio inerview」)

On August 23, 1974, John Lennon witnessed a UFO along with others.The place is 434 East 52nd Street, New York.It's about the size of a small business jet.The shape is a cone.It says that there was one bright red light above, with a flashing of white light on the bottom of the bottom, and a shining brightness with a flashing of white light.

In 1975, the next year, he encountered the alien.The place is the name "Dacotahouse" (No. 1, West 72nd Street, New York West 72nd Street), where he lived with Yoko Ono.

In the middle of the night, when I awoke, I found a strong light from the door.When I woke up and opened the door, there were four small 
aliens that I tried to push back, but I couldn't push it back, and when John found out, he was in bed.

At that time, strangely enough, something like a [golden egg] was placed in John Lennon's hand. 

A look at the life of John Lennon as a backdrop to his famous songs about love and world peace.

John Lennon has created many masterpieces that have entertained people all over the world. Even today, the songs of the band "The Beatles" are still sung by many people, and the words of the poems written by John Lennon continue to have a strong impact on people's hearts.

Along with his songs, John Lennon has also left behind many unique quotes in his life.

Let's start by looking at John Lennon's life as a background for the messages in these quotes.

Until the Beatles was formed.

 John Lennon was born in Liverpool, England on October 9, 1940.
Back then, during World War II, Liverpool,Nazi GermanyIt was such a state that it was under attack.

During his father's voyage, his mother was living with another man, so John Lennon was raised by his aunt Mimi, his mother Julia's sister.

Even though he had both parents, he was still raised by his aunt and was quite mischievous during his youth and school days, and was seen by those around him as a problem child who fought all the time.

It was during this time that John Lennon encountered rock music and became fascinated with it. Inspired by Elvis Presley, he began to play the guitar, and later, in the backyard of St. Peter's Church, he met Paul McCartney, who would later form the Beatles.

"Without Elvis, the Beatles wouldn't have been born." John Lennon felt that way. 

And the encounter with Paul McCartney changed his life dramatically.

In this way, he began his musical career and formed the Beatles in 1960, when he was just 20 years old. 

And While playing an active role as the Beatles, he becomes a great singer-songwriter who leaves many famous songs under the name of "Lennon-McCartney".

The Beatles' big success

Two years after the Beatles were formed, Ringo Starr joined the band as a new member, and Love Me Do became a big hit that year.

The Beatles made their record debut on October 5, 1962, but before that, he married a woman named Cynthia Powell on August 23, 1962. They have a son, Julian Lennon.

He continued to produce hit songs, gaining attention in the U.S. as well as in the U.K., and eventually causing a worldwide boom. In 1964, the band won a Grammy Award and was recognized as a world-famous rock band in both name and reality.

They came to Japan, and at that time, there was a Beatles whirlwind throughout Japan. The scene of the Beatles coming down from the airplane wearing ハッピ( jackets) at the airport can still be seen on TV today.

 In 1966, at the height of the Beatles' career, John Lennon made a controversial comment about Christ, which caused the Beatles to take a break from touring, and John went to see an exhibition by avant-garde artist Yoko Ono. This is how he met Yoko Ono.

After his marriage to Yoko in 1969, John Lennon's solo activities became more radical and active, and he became more involved in the peace movement, opposing the Vietnam War. John Lennon and Yoko Ono had one child, Sean Lennon.

After the Beatles broke up,

In 1970, he broke up the Beatles and began his solo career, singing songs of love and peace and working vigorously.

However, Mark Chapman kills John Lennon with a gun in front of his Dakota apartment in New York. It was on December 8, 1980. The news shocked the world, and many people mourned his untimely death.

Let's take a look at some of the quotes left behind by John Lennon while reflecting on such a life.

Select 14 John Lennon Quotes That Speak to the Heart as Well as the Song

As a singer, songwriter, painter and pacifist, John Lennon's words are inextricably linked to his songs.

Many of his quotes can be found in his lyrics, as well as in the interviews he gave while working as an artist.

Also, John Lennon's solo career started before the Beatles effectively broke up, and he was trying to work even more vigorously into the 80s.

Partly inspired by the trends of the times and an avant-garde artist named Yoko Ono, many of his quotes are about love and peace.

John Lennon wise saying ① Fairies and dream worlds do exist.

⭐I believe in everything until it's disproved. So I believe in fairies, the myths, dragons. It all exists, even if it's in your mind. Who's to say that dreams and nightmares aren't as real as the here and now? 

⭐私は真実ではないと証明されるまで、全てのことを信じる。
 だから妖精や神話やドラゴンも信じる。
 たとえ心の中だけであっても、それらは皆存在する。
 誰が夢や悪夢は今ここにあるものと違って
 リアルではないって言えるんだ?

 (source ・e.g. quotation『大人のロック! 特編 ザ・ビートルズ1967-1970 青の時代の真実 (日経BPムック) 雑誌 – 2007/11/8』日経エンタテインメント・英文はYahoo Japan知恵袋より)

John Lennon may have had actual experiences with aliens, the afterlife, and fairies. Or he may have had a special ability to see spirits.

John Lennon's biggest solo hit, "Imagine," has lyrics that seem to deny both heaven and religion.

This has become a major controversy among religious people in later generations. If John Lennon were looking at it from the other world, he would probably be laughing his ass off.

 You don't feel any heavenly spiritual vibrations in "Imagine"?

I would venture to say that there is no real intent in denying the existence of heaven and hell, or religion, and that what I denied in the lyrics was "the mindless fighting between religions and a worldview without love.

From a higher perspective and with a purer wish, "Imagine" appeals that love is the image of God, that a world filled with love is peace, and that love and peace are eternal.

Not only "Imagine," but also the songs of John Lennon and the Beatles are full of power that tugs at the heartstrings of the soul and encourages spiritual awakening.

It goes without saying that its investigation is not a worldly and materialistic feeling. The songs of John Lennon are filled with love and spiritual vibrations that remind us of the nostalgia of our souls.

And sometimes, it is a revolution of love that unites all world religions, a powerful impact that opens the eyes of truth. This is in fact the meaning of true rock and the secret behind the explosive success of songs like "Imagine.

John Lennon wise saying➁ Wishes for Peace

 All we are saying is give peace a chance.

僕らが言ってるのは “平和を我等に” ただこれだけさ

(source ・e.g. quotation 英文・訳とも「nhk.or.jp2017年12月19日ジョン・レノン 名曲はこうして誕生した」より)

Even before he met Yoko Ono, John Lennon was interested in Orientalism. Through art performances, he and Yoko together promote peace through very positive actions.

John Lennon wise saying③The Power of Affirmation

⭐ Open your heart and say "Yes". If you affirm everything, you'll find the answer

心を開いて「Yes」って言ってごらん。すべてを肯定してみると答えがみつかるもんだよ。

(source ・e.g. quotation『自己肯定感にいいこと超大全』著 トキオ・ナレッジ/英文は心の常備薬medicines.aquaorbis.netより)

When John Lennon went to see Yoko Ono's exhibition, it is said that if he had not seen the word "Yes" written on it, there would have been no future for them.

This "Yes" was filled with Yoko Ono's strong and passionate vibes. No matter how hard it is to work for world peace, the positive and affirmative word "Yes" must have resonated with John as a very powerful and soulful word.

 Lennon wise saying④ Love yourself.

 We need to learn to love ourselves first, in all our glory and our imperfections.

⭐僕らは、自分のすばらしさと不完全さのなかで、何よりも自分自身を愛することから学ばなければいけない。

(source ・e.g. quotation  livedoorNEWS 2018年3月5日 「誰かにそばにいてほしい時に効くジョン・レノンの言葉」/英文は名言倶楽部meigen.club) 

Only those who have been able to embrace and love their strengths and weaknesses in their entirety will be able to develop their strengths while preventing their weaknesses from appearing next time. By loving yourself, you can begin to grow and develop.

Knowing that he was not perfect as a person, John Lennon was able to love others with a heartfelt kindness.

John Lennon wise saying⑤ Live "Your Life".

⭐I hope you live as you please. Because it's your life.

⭐好きに生きたらいいんだよ。だって、君の人生なんだから。

(source ・e.g. quotation大好きなことをやって生きよう!』本田健著 フォレスト出版・英文は心の常備薬medicines.aquaorbis.netより)

Other people can evaluate and judge you as they please. Even if they don't know you well, they may freely express how you are based on their mood of the day.

However, only you can decide your own life, and the way forward starts with taking responsibility for your own life.

The important thing there is to love and embrace "you" as you are.

There are many wonderful things about your character and personality. For example, you may not be able to speak as smoothly as other people, but somehow your sales performance is not so bad.

You don't have to be so miserable about yourself. Be grateful for your blessings and gently praise yourself for the efforts you have made.

But you also need to realize that you are the only one who can further develop your abilities. No one else can visit you and take responsibility for your life or develop your abilities.

From the point of view of "living your life as you want and making your own way," we can see that John Lennon was a totally free man.

 For example, I don't know what people would have said about a man raising a child in the 80's, when the wind might have been even stronger than it is now. But that didn't matter to John. He may have been searching for a new and beautiful melody in the midst of raising a child.  

John Lennon wise saying⑥ The virtue of honest person

Being honest may not get you many friends but it’ll always get you the right ones.

正直でいることは、必ずしも沢山の友人を持つことにはつながらない。しかし常に真の友人を持つ事につながる。

(source ・e.g. quotation 英文・和訳とも「KIZNA Global Company Ltd.2019.11.25人生について偉人が残した心に沁みる25選!」)

John Lennon did not want friendships that were not honest and full of superlatives and decorations. This is because such a mentality does not produce music that touches the heartstrings of people.

I believe that the reason why a song reaches and touches people's hearts is because you can feel the soul connection between the person who wrote the song and the person who listens to it in the song or poem. A song is like a love that connects people to each other.

That's why there should be no falsehood or misrepresentation in it. Honesty and purity of spirit are necessary.

John Lennon wise saying⑦ How to spend your life

 Life is very short and there's no time for fussing and fighting, my friends.

人生は短い。だから友だちと争ったり戦ったりする、暇なんてないんだよ。

(source ・e.g. quotation レノン&マッカートニー作詞・作曲の「We Can Work It Out」1965年12月リリース・『ジョン・レノン120の言葉』ディスカヴァー・トゥエンティワン・英文https://meigen-ijin.com参照) 

The words of John Lennon, who had to lose his life in a sudden incident at the age of 40, "Life is short," carry a lot of weight.

・It's really a pity to keeIt is really a shame to spend so much time fighting regardless of what the other person says or does. The candle of life may even die out while you are worrying about such things.

No matter how many unpleasant things other people say to you, you need to be able to pass them off as appropriate, except for those things that you absolutely cannot remove from your faith or beliefs.

This is I think this is necessary even in this day and age when words are flying around on social networking sites.

Also, it is good to prepare well in advance for everything, but if you spend all your time preparing and don't take on the challenge and do it, you will not be able to have a successful life.

We need the "courage" to take on challenges in life. It is a shame that there are things in life that we should be doing, but we are not doing them.

The way to victory in life is to use your time in a meaningful way.

John Lennon wise saying⑧ The value of love

⭐It doesn't matter who loves you somewhere or who likes you when, where, and how. It's more important that you love

誰を愛するか、どこで愛するか、なぜ愛するか、いつ愛するか、どう愛するか、そんなの問題じゃない。あなたが愛しているということが大切なんだ。

(The original English version of these words does not appear to be in any of John Lennon's lyrics or in any of his interviews. https://quoteinvestigator.com/2016/02/21/love-whoによると, April 1971, words by singer/songwriter/poet Rod McKuen The article was published in the "New York Times" as According to the article, John Lennon may have quoted it. The translation is from Kotoba no Chikara.jp.)

You cannot be happy if you only worry about whether people love you or not, or if you only want to be loved. In order to be happy, it is important to love and give love to others from your side.

For example, if you only want to be loved by others, your mind will always be restless and wavering. On the other hand, if you give love to others, your mind will be refreshed.

This is because when you give love to others, the light of heaven flows into your heart. This warm light brings happiness to the heart.

Love is divinity (spirituality). By giving love and loving, love becomes pure and beautiful.

John Lennon wise saying⑨ About my mind.

⭐You have to think about your own mind. I can't do it with anyone

⭐自分の心は 自分でめんどう見なきゃ。かわりなんか誰もつとめちゃくれないよ。 

(『ジョン・レノンが見た日本』オノヨーコ著 日本版小学館・英語版ちくま文庫より) 

⭐I can tell you how I've been, but you have to think about what you're going to do.

⭐僕がこれまでどうやってきたかは教えられるけど、君がこれからどうするかは自分で考えなきゃ。

(『ジョンレノン全仕事 ペーパーバック』日本版・英語版より)


Only you can control your own mind, and success in life begins with controlling your mind.

At first glance, it may seem as if John Lennon was shunning the other person, but behind the words, you can feel the warm and deep love of John Lennon, "I want you to somehow overcome your hardships and blossom wonderfully in life.

John Lennon wise saying⑩ What is time that is not wasted?

⭐Time made wasteful pleasantly isn’t wasteful.

⭐楽しんで無駄にした時間は、無駄じゃない。

(source ・e.g. quotation「 livedoorNEWS 2018年3月5日 誰かにそばにいてほしい時に効くジョン・レノンの言葉」・英文は心の常備薬medicines.aquaorbis.netより) 

Fun wasted time can be a great motivator. It can also be a positive way to take a break.

Successful people have a way of relieving stress. People who have fun wasting time have an open mind that allows them to come up with new ideas and discoveries.

John Lennon wise saying⑪Vision in the mind

⭐The vision in my heart becomes a reality

⭐心の中のヴィジョンは、現実になるんだ。

(source ・e.g. quotationジョン・レノンに恋して』シンシア レノン日本版河出書房新社/英語版より)

⭐What kind of, you can grow up and succeed.” when keeping telling oneself so many times, it can succeed by all means.

「絶対に成功できる」この言葉を自分に言い聞かせていれば、本当に成功できるんだよ。

(source ・e.g. quotation『ジョン・レノンラスト・インタビュー日本版中公論新社/英語版より)

The visions in your mind become the reality of this world through the power of thought. The power of thought has a magical power.

What is important is its direction, and we need to check the direction of our mind to see if that direction will bring happiness to the world.

If we have pure and passionate thoughts of love, then we should strengthen the power of those thoughts. One way to do this is to tell yourself over and over again what you want to achieve, as if you were carving a sculpture.

John Lennon also emphasized that the prerequisites for "making the vision in your head a reality" are the ability to believe in yourself and the ability to dream.

⭐The fundamental ability is to believe that one can do something.

⭐根本的な才能とは、自分に何かが出来ると信じることだ。

(source ・e.g. quotation「 LINE livedoorNEWS 2018年3月5日 誰かにそばにいてほしい時に効くジョン・レノンの言葉」・英文は心の常備薬medicines.aquaorbis.netより)  

It is possible for anyone to believe that they can do something. In order to do so, you need to meditate quietly, and in meditation, you need to sit face to face with the Great God. In meditation, you will find out what you have to do, big or small.

John Lennon sensed his "mission" in his faith in God, and because he believed in himself, he was able to do work that would have a great impact on future generations.

John Lennon wise saying⑫ On Happiness

 You aren't supposed to be hesitated to become happy.

⭐ 幸せになることに躊躇してはいけない。

(source ・e.g. quotation「 livedoorNEWS 2018年3月5日 誰かにそばにいてほしい時に効くジョン・レノンの言葉」・英文は心の常備薬medicines.aquaorbis.netより) 

Everyone wants to be happy, but surprisingly, many people hesitate to be happy even when they are on the verge of being happy because of some mental symptoms that cause hardships.

This is because people who have had a lot of suffering and sorrow in the past are drawn to those visions and make unhappy choices.

In order not to be deterred from being happy, you need to set a new purpose and guideline for your life. Draw a new vision of happiness and keep it firmly in your mind.

John Lennon wise saying ⑬ Imagine.

⭐Imagine all the people Living life in peace

⭐想像してごらん、すべての人々が平和に暮らしていると 

(source ・e.g. quotation 英文・訳とも「nhk.or.jp2017年12月19日ジョン・レノン 名曲はこうして誕生した」より)

At the conclusion of "Imagine," it is sung that I am not alone in pursuing my dream, but that someday you will join me and the world will become one. (source ・e.g. quotation 東京新聞2020年11月1日ジョン・レノン 生誕80年・没後40年 世界は今も「イマジン」を求めて参照)

A famous passage. This is a famous verse calling for peace, which is typical of John Lennon. 

John Lennon wise saying⑭ What is love?

⭐Love is like a flower – you' ve got to let it grow.

⭐愛とは、 育てなくてはいけない花のようなもの。

(source ・e.g. quotation ジョン・レノン作詞・作曲「Mind Games」1973年11月リリース・『日本語と英語で読む!愛の名言100 バイリンガル名言集 』出口 敏雄著より)

Like growing a flower, love must be nurtured with time and effort, otherwise it will never grow.

This is a very beautiful quote that runs through the life of John Lennon, who lived for love and died for love.

His wife was Japanese, and he seemed to love Japan too, and Japanese people loved the Beatles and John Lennon.

I'm a world-class singer from England, but it's also possible that John Lennon also loved Japan, as well as a number of people familiar with Japan have become a fan.

Love is everything - that was John Lennon's famous message.

As a lonely boy, John Lennon was starved of his parents' love, but by loving himself, loving others, and believing in others, he continued to appeal for love and peace until his death.

Regrettably, he met a sad end when he was killed by a man who was said to be his most ardent fan.

However, "love is everything".

John Lennon's soul was a "mass of love. He used the weapon of song to bring a gentle but fierce "revolution of love" to the world.
