It’s hard to believe it’s been nearly 30 years since John Lennon’s death. The father of two who sang about peace and love was murdered 30 29years ago today, but his legacy has lived on through his songs, his children and of course his many wonderful quotes, which are just as insightful now as they were three decades ago.
Here’s a list of the best John Lennon quotes, including some “Imagine” lyrics and other favorite tunes. Have any favorite quotes of your own? Please add below.

“If everyone demanded peace instead of another television set, then there’d be peace.”
“A dream you dream alone is only a dream. A dream you dream together is reality.”
