“George [Harrison] was a good and humble man who believed in the power of love to overcome all adversity. He lived his life without asking anything for himself, and his courage to quietly remind us that God created a world for peace and compassion has had a profound effect on all of our lives.” - Billy Corgan, 2001

“George [Harrison], too, was a dreamer. He believed in making the world a better place, and with his idealism, activism and, most of all, his music, he did exactly that. He lived a life of quiet dignity and today the world is a lesser place.” - Mike Mills, 2001

“You know, just go ahead, George, go on and fly away, babe. Just be free, and… and go. And we’ll… we’ll see you down the line. And… just leave, go to someplace nice. We’re gonna be all right down here. And then… then he went out. And that was it.” - Living in the Material World

“There was a profound experience that happened when he left his body. It was visible. Let’s just say, you wouldn’t… you wouldn’t need to light the room… if you were trying to film it. You know, he, uh… he just… he just lit the room.” - Olivia Harrison, Living in the Material World
