John Lennon in New York

John Lennon in New York, 1974

“When I was 5 years old, my mother always told me that happiness was the key to life. When I went to school, they asked me what I wanted to be when I grew up. I wrote down ‘happy’. They told me I didn’t understand the assignment, and I told them they didn’t understand life.”

 John Lennon

    • Good comment Prasenjeet. Thank you for sharing this.

      I think what John Lennon was saying is this philosophy was instilled in him as a child by his mother because she knew he would run into resistance throughout his life, and it wasn’t considered normal to be that happy.
