George Harrison MBE (February 25, 1943 – November 29, 2001) was an English musician, multi-instrumentalist, singer and songwriter and music and film producer who achieved international fame as the lead guitarist of the Beatles. Although John Lennon and Paul McCartney were the band's primary songwriters, most Beatles albums from 1965 onwards contained at least two Harrison compositions. His songs for the group included "Taxman", "Within You Without You", "While My Guitar Gently Weeps", "Here Comes the Sun" and "Something", the last of which became the Beatles' second-most-covered song.

All religions are branches of one big tree. It doesn't matter what you call Him just as long as you call.

All the world is birthday cake, so take a piece, but not too much.

As long as you hate, there will be people to hate.

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

Gossip is the Devil's radio.

I don't mind anybody dropping out of anything, but it's the imposition on somebody else I don't like.

If everybody who had a gun just shot themselves there wouldn’t be a problem.

Perhaps this may sound weird, but God is really there next to you.

Rap music is just computerised crap. I listen to Top of the Pops and after three songs I feel like killing someone.

That's what the whole Sixties Flower-Power thing was about: "Go away, you bunch of boring people."

The nicest thing is to open the newspapers and not to find yourself in them.

There's no past and there's no future. Time is a very misleading thing. All there is ever, is the now. We can gain experience from the past, but we can't relive it; and we can hope for the future, but we don't know if there is one.

Try to realize it's all within yourself no one else can make you change, and to see you're only very small and life flows on within you and without you.

With every mistake, we must surely be learning.

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.

You do what you can- can't do much more than that.

You've got as many lives as you like, and more, even ones you don't want.
