In the end, the love you take is equal to the love you make.
If slaughterhouses had glass walls, everyone would be a vegetarian.
I don't work at being ordinary.
Buy, buy, says the sign in the shop window; Why, why, says the junk in the yard.
Somebody said to me, 'But the Beatles were anti-materialistic.' That's a huge myth. John and I literally used to sit down and say, 'Now, let's write a swimming pool.'
I used to think that anyone doing anything weird was weird. I suddenly realized that anyone doing anything weird wasn't weird at all and it was the people saying they were weird that were weird.
It's time to end the cruel slaughter of whales and leave these magnificent creatures alone.
We were a savage little lot, Liverpool kids, not pacifist or vegetarian or anything. But I feel I've gone beyond that, and that it was immature to be so prejudiced and believe in all the stereotypes.
The rumors of my death have been greatly exaggerated.
None of us wanted to be the bass player. In our minds he was the fat guy who always played at the back.
Why would I retire? Sit at home and watch TV? No thanks. I'd rather be out playing.
My old school in Liverpool is now a performing-arts school, and I kind of teach there - I use the word lightly - but I go there and talk to students.
I love the past. There are parts of the past I hate, of course.
I used to think that all my Wings stuff was second-rate stuff, but I began to meet younger kids, not kids from my Beatle generation, who would say, We really love this song.
I can take pot or leave it. I got busted in Japan for it. I was nine days without it and there wasn't a hint of withdrawal, nothing.
I have not practiced how to be a singer without an instrument.
One of my biggest thrills for me still is sitting down with a guitar or a piano and just out of nowhere trying to make a song happen.
I've got to admit it's getting better. It's a little better all the time.
Love is all you need.
Think globally, act locally.
I look a lot busier than I am, as I'm actually a rather sporadic, random person and I'll play a few gigs and then disappear for a while.
I never look forward, because I have no idea about how any of it happened to getting here. I've no idea how the next five years are going to be.
There are only four people who knew what the Beatles were about anyway.
Being in the audience actually looks like quite a lot of fun.
