Piece of advice

Never complain, never explain. Don't let people know what is true all the time, that's what keeps the mystery.

"Yes, but... What did you expect?"

"The earth is evil. We don't need to grieve for it, nobody will miss it. All I know is, life on earth is evil and there isn't life anywhere else. Because I know things, I know we're alone. 678. The bean lottery. Nobody guessed the amount of beans in the bottle, but I know. 678. And when I say we're alone, we're alone. Life is only on earth, and not for long."

Falsely Yours

My dear,

We live in a world where we have to hide to make love, while violence is practiced in broad daylight.
Where mothers tell their children not to watch ‘adult activity’ in one breath, and tell them to watch their violent Saturday morning cartoons in the other.
To me violence and sex have the same intensity. If we’re going to hide one, then we must hide the other. And if we’re going to publicize one, we’re going to have to publicize the other. And it’s far too late to hide the facts; the kids know, the parents know, the neighbors know, the world knows – we are violent beings. …But we are also loving beings.
There’s already an abundance of violence, let’s start practicing love. Let’s see where that takes us.

Falsely yours,

John Winston Lennon
