If slaughterhouses had glass walls, everyone would be a vegetarian.

PAUL MCCARTNEY, quoted in The Vegetarian Manifesto

All we ever got in those [early] days was "Where are you from? Liverpool? You'll have to be in London before you can do it. Nobody's ever done it from Liverpool.

PAUL MCCARTNEY, Life Magazine, Sep. 13, 1968

I suppose I'd have to look at the breakup of the Beatles as being the dark moment. I seem to remember it was around then that the word "heavy" emerged -- "It's heavy, man." Everything seemed heavy, whereas it had all seemed quite light before that.

PAUL MCCARTNEY, Rolling Stone, May 3, 2007

That's the terrible thing about growing up. You lose friends. It's inevitable. It's not like it's a surprise. But it is terrible.

PAUL MCCARTNEY, Rolling Stone, May 3, 2007

Life is an energy field, a bunch of molecules. And these particular molecules formed to make these four guys, who then formed into this band called the Beatles and did all that work. I have to think that was something metaphysical. Something alchemic. Something that must be thought of as magic.

Buy buy says the sign in the shop window
Why why says the in junk in the yard

PAUL MCCARTNEY, "Junk", McCartney

Close your eyes and I'll kiss you,
Tomorrow I'll miss you


In Liverpool we'd only done one-hour sessions. In Hamburg we had to play for eight hours. We played very loud, bang, bang, all the time. The Germans loved it.
