Visionaries, John Lennon


The world is full of examples of man (and woman? ... I hope!) that were ahead of their own time. Clear examples, to name a few, would be Albert Einstein, Tesla and Julio Verne (one of his novels written in 1864 was recently adapted and a 3D movie was produced).

I have to confess I never liked The Beatles, not a little bit, but there is one John Lennon's song which has one of the best lyrics ever:

"Imagine there's no heaven
It's easy if you try
No hell below us
Above us only sky
Imagine all the people
Living for today...

Imagine there's no countries
It isn't hard to do
Nothing to kill or die for
And no religion too
Imagine all the people
Living life in peace...

You may say I'm a dreamer
But I'm not the only one
I hope someday you'll join us
And the world will be as one

Imagine no possessions
I wonder if you can
No need for greed or hunger
A brotherhood of man
Imagine all the people
Sharing all the world...

You may say I'm a dreamer
But I'm not the only one
I hope someday you'll join us
And the world will live as one"

That to me is vision too ...
Found lots of Lennon's cool quotes here.
