“Brian put in a lot of time getting us off the ground. He believed in us from the start.” - George Harrison, The Beatles Anthology [x]

“I tell you, Larry… there is no other band, there will never be any band like them, ever, for eternity. They are… the best… I say to you, Larry, here in 1965, that the children of 2000 will be listening to the Beatles. And I sincerely mean that.” - Brian Epstein to Larry Kane, When They Were Boys [x]

John Lennon: “We don’t know what to say. We loved him and he was one of us. So you can’t -”
George Harrison: “You can’t pay tribute in words.” - 27 August 1967

In memory of Brian Epstein, 19 September 1934 - 27 August 1967… with gratitude.
