George Harrison, MBE (25 February 1943 – 29 November 2001) was an English musician, singer and songwriter who achieved international fame as the lead guitarist of the Beatles. Although John Lennon and Paul McCartney were the band's primary songwriters, most of their albums included at least one Harrison composition, including "While My Guitar Gently Weeps", "Here Comes the Sun" and "Something", which became the Beatles' second-most-covered song.

List of George Harrison quotes.

I still practice Transcendental Meditation and I think it's great. Marharishi only ever did good for us, and although I have not been with him physically, I never left him.


I don't wear small shoes, or tight pants that squash your balls.


Experience is the main reason why we're here I think in the world to gain experience and from our experience we gain knowledge, oh I think so anyway, knowledge and if we get any knowledge then we gain liberation, you know we free ourselves. (On Life and Experience)
