Hey guys!
I'm looking for a Beatles project Beatles quotes, not from songs.

1. About each other (i.e George about John etc)
2. About being famous

I'm looking mostly for funny jokes.
What are you favorites?

Sad quote

John ~ "I don't intend to be a performing flea anymore. I was the dreamweaver, but although I'll be around I don't intend to be running at 20,000 miles an hour, trying to prove myself. I don't want to die at 40."
---------------------------------------


Fun quote
Reporter: What did you think when your airplane's engine began smoking as you landed today?

Ringo: Beatles, Women, and children first!

--------------------------------------
John: We were all on this ship in the sixties, our generation, a ship going to discover the New World. And the Beatles were in the crow's nest of that ship"

--------------------------------


John:
"Love is a promise,
Love is a souvenir,
Once given never forgotten,
Never let it disappear."

------------------------------

Paul: We didn't all get into music for a job! We got into music to avoid a job, in truth - and get lots of girls.
------------------------------

George: I'd like to think that the old Beatle fans have grown up and they've got married and they've all got kids, and they're more responsible, but they still have a space in their hearts for us.

-------------------------------

Q: "I'd like to direct this question to messrs. Lennon and McCartney. In a recent article, 'Time' magazine put down Pop music. And they referred to 'Day Tripper' as being about a prostitute..."

PAUL: (nodding jokingly) "Oh yeah."

Q: "...and 'Norwegian Wood' as being about a lesbian."

PAUL: (nodding) "Oh yeah."

Q: "I just wanted to know what your intent was when you wrote it, and what your feeling is about the 'Time' magazine criticizm of the music that is being written today."

PAUL: "We were just trying to write songs about prostitutes and lesbians, that's all."

Okay, in that picture, George looks like Sir Robin from Monty Python and the Holy Grail, John kind of looks like he did right before they split up, Paul, I don't know about Paul, and Ringo looks like my uncle.

John Lennon- Christianity will go. It will vanish and shrink. I needn't argue with that; I'm right and I will be proved right. We're more popular than Jesus now; I don't know which will go first - rock and roll or Christianity.

John Lennon-  Would those of you in the cheaper seats clap your hands? And the rest of you, if you'll just rattle your jewelry.

Q: "What influenced you fellas to let your hair grow so long?"

PAUL: "I think it was my dad, really. He said, 'You know, Paul, it's a bit square,' the haircut I had-- you know, short back and sides. He said, 'Why don't you get a Beatle Cut, son.'"




Q: "You save on haircutting, at least?"

PAUL: "Yeah, uhhh-- We're saving."

JOHN: "I think it costs more to keep it short than to keep it long, don't you?"

Great quotes. I loved the Beatles, women and children first, and laughed a lot with the "Thank you Ringo" thing. The "Dont wanna die at 40" is sad though.

My favourite quote is the first off my signature, Sounds so cool.

Didnt John come up with Beatles in a dream? Where a spirit in flames, or something like that, said, "You shall be called Beatles with an E". I can't remember what said it, but it's on Anthology One.

Hi everyone,

"Put yer tongue away, it looks disgustin hangin out, all pink and naked"  

Classic! :)

Another great thread, mysweetgeorge!

I have so many favorites, but I'll start with Ringo's "I'm going parading before it's too late!" in A Hard Day's Night.
