Key to life

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

    Great quote right there. The world could do worse than heed some of John Lennon’s values…starting with listening to the lyrics in “Imagine”.
