“I am basically a potentially divine, wonderful human being,’ and all this rattiness and not feeling good is attaching itself to my mind, it plays tricks on us and can trip you over. I thought ‘I don’t have to feel all this! I do love everybody,’ and that is really all you’ve got to do, manifest your love. The only thing we really have to work at in this life is how to manifest love.”


Screen captures of glimpses of Olivia in George Harrison’s music videos: “Ding Dong, Ding Dong” [x]; “This Song” (in the back, wearing a headband); “Crackerbox Palace” [xx]; and “This Is Love.”

“I fell for her immediately. She is a very calming influence. She has been very supportive and we are blissfully happy together. I told her I didn’t want her doing all that typing. We started going with each other, and four years later we married.” - George Harrison, quoted in The Mirror, 2001 [x]

Q: “Was it love at first sight?”
Olivia: “Pretty much. We felt it in our hearts from before we met. Even on the phone, we seemed to have some understanding, like you do when you meet the right person. And he was a charmer, such a charmer!” - The Sun, 12 June 2009 [x]

“Olivia Harrison is now travelling along her own long and winding road, but it is not a journey she feels she is making alone. Still taking comfort in her husband’s voice, she says that her favourite George Harrison song is Run of the Mill, with a lyric that asks: how high will you leap? That is what she asks herself now, although she knows that her husband is still with her, ‘in some incarnation or another’ and that her happy marriage endures.
'I don’t know if anyone really knows the secret of such a long marriage like ours, but we both had a bigger goal of attaining a spiritual success and I think that could be it. When you have a bigger goal in life, it makes everything else a little bit easier.’” - The Telegraph, 24 January 2005 [x]
