“Everybody lives their lives thinking this is reality and then say to people like us, ‘Oh, you’re just escaping from reality.’ They seriously term this scene - of waking up, going out to work, going home again, going to sleep, dreaming, waking up again, and all that - reality! But in actual fact you’re into illusion - it’s nothing to do with reality, because reality is God alone. Everything else is just an illusion.” - George Harrison, Rolling Stone, 1968 [x]

“He was easy to be with, gentle, kind, and caring. Although I was supposed to be taking care of him, he would always concern himself with how I was doing. He had a bashful, soft-spoken manner with friend and stranger alike and always appeared to care about others.” - Ken Mansfield on George Harrison, The White Book [x]
