We used to send up the idea of getting to the top. John would shout, "Where are we going, fellas?" We'd shout back, "To the top, Johnny!"

GEORGE HARRISON, Life Magazine, Sep. 13, 1968

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?

GEORGE HARRISON, West 57th Street interview, Dec. 12, 1987

Something in the way she moves attracts me like no other lover.


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, The Beatles Anthology

My mum did encourage me, perhaps most of all by never discouraging me from anything I wanted to do. If you tell kids not to, they're going to do it in the end anyway. I'd finished all that staying-out-all-night-drinking bit when everybody else came to it. Probably why I don't like alcohol today. I had it all by the age of 10.

GEORGE HARRISON, Life Magazine, Sep. 13, 1968

All religions are branches of one big tree.

GEORGE HARRISON, introduction, Krsna

I don't know how you were diverted
You were perverted too.
I don't know how you were inverted
No one alerted you.

GEORGE HARRISON, "While My Guitar Gently Weeps"

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.

GEORGE HARRISON, West 57th Street interview, Dec. 12, 1987

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, introduction, Krsna

Do what you want to do,
And go where you're going to.
Think for yourself
'Cause I won't be there with you.

GEORGE HARRISON, "Think for Yourself"

Isn't it a pity
Now, isn't it a shame
How we break each other's hearts
And cause each other pain

How we take each other's love
Without thinking anymore
Forgetting to give back
Isn't it a pity

GEORGE HARRISON, "Isn't It a Pity"
