  • Raquelle: Who broke it? I'm not mad. I just wanna know.
  • Barbie: I did, I broke it--
  • Raquelle: No, no you didn't. Ryan?
  • Ryan: Don't look at me. Look at Ken.
  • Ken: What? I didn't break it.
  • Ryan: Huh, that's weird, how did you even know it was broken?
  • Ken: Because it's sitting right in front of us! And it's broken!
  • Ryan: Suspicious.
  • Ken: No, it's not.
  • Midge: If it matters, probably not, but Teresa was the last one to use it.
  • Teresa: Liar, I don't even drink that crap!
  • Midge: Oh, really, then what were you doing by the coffee cart earlier?
  • Teresa: I use the wooden stirrers to push back my cuticles! Everyone knows that, Midge!
  • Barbie: Okay, okay, let's not fight. I broke it, let me pay for it, Raquelle.
  • Raquelle: No! Who broke it?
  • Ken: Raquelle... Nikki's been awfully quiet.
  • Nikki: REALLY?!
  • Ken: Yeah, really!
  • Nikki: Oh my god!
  • [later]
  • Raquelle: I broke it. It burned my hand, so I punched it. I predict 10 minutes from now they'll be at each other's throats with war paint on their faces and a pig head on a stick. Good. It was getting a little chummy around here.

Remembering George 1943- 2001

“There’s a mirror, but the mirror has layers of dust and dirt on it so you don’t get to know about the wisdom until you figure out how to clean the mirror.
Every human soul is potentially divine: the goal is to manifest that divinity.  And it’s a bit of a trick to do it.  There’s an underlying reality that we must discover and I think the blessing is the realisation that there is actually something that exists other than our daily mundane life.” - George, 1995

George at his estate, Friar Park by Terry O’Neill - 1975

“I’m unhappy about the world being concreted over and all the forests chopped down, the air polluted And the fact that the planet is in the control of mad people. You know, people who are crazy, people who are greedy, all these people who are selling the rain forests and you know, any forests, just selling because they make some money” - George Harrison (SOURCE)

Seeing this photo I thought of several quotes by and about George and decided to do this post. I might actually do a Part II as I research this in pertaining to George, more. As a George fan/admirer/lover, I hope u will find it interesting. (George @ Friar Park by Terry O’Neill)

#1 “They all dream of air disasters in one way or another. But George dreams of them the most, it seems. But in George’s case, it isn’t as morbid as you might think.” “He told me, one dream that really sticks in my mind is where an aeroplane came zooming down and crashed in front of me. Your readers might have guessed that ‘cos I don’t like flying’ anyway the plane crashed with a big explosion and all the fuel flew through the air for miles away. I jumped away and lay flat on the ground to protect myself. But all the fuel was aflame and it landed on my legs.” He had started to speak quickly, reliving the event ‘moment by moment’  I must have looked horrified at his grisly description because he looked up and grinned : “It was all funny though, my legs were burnin’ but they weren’t like hurtin’! ;;;;;

“I dream about weird things. like houses with distorting mirrors in them  or people walking around with pan lids on top of their heads, Don’t ask me why, it’s all a bit funny.” - Beatle Dreams, Alan Smith

#8. “Well when I first heard of this ‘Century award’, I thought it was me that was 100 years old..” - Acceptance speech for the Billboard Century Award 1992

#9 “He was searching for something much higher, much deeper,” said Shankar, the sitar virtuoso who became Harrison’s mentor and friend. “It does seem like he already had some Indian background in him. Otherwise, it’s hard to explain how he got so attracted to a particular type of life and philosophy, even religion. It seems very strange, really. Unless you believe in reincarnation.” - Ravi Shankar cited in the Rolling Stone article, “The Private Life Of George Harrison” by Brian Hiatt, 15 September 2011

“When George heard Indian music that really was the trigger. It was like a bell that went off in his head. It not only awakened his desire to hear more music, but also to understand what was going on in Indian philosophy. It was a unique diversion.” - Olivia, cited in the book, “George Harrison: Behind The Locked Door”, Graeme Thomson

#11 “Sometimes I feel like I’m actually on the wrong planet. It’s great when I’m in my garden, but the minute I go out the gate I think, ‘What the hell am I doing here?”    George

“Ya know, really, the past, the present and the future is just one big cycle. I believe as much Buddhists and Hindus believe it’s us coming back ya know.” - George on reincarnation, Brainwashed EPK

In short, I believe all eleven points on this list pertain to George and will do more posts on this subject in the future. - Brenda
