George Harrison was one of the four fabulous members of the Beatles. Not only was he a talented guitarist, songwriter, and vocalist, but it turns out he was quite intelligent as well. Here are some of his most inspiring bits of wisdom.

Number Seven: “If you don’t know where you’re going, any road’ll take you there” – George Harrison

This is quite an abstract quote, but it makes a lot of sense. People worry about what they should do with their lives, but even if they are uncertain, things have a way of falling into place.

Number Six: “It’s being here now that’s important. There’s no past and there’s no future. Time is a very misleading thing. All there is ever, is the now”

This is a spiritual idea talked about a lot in Eastern philosophy and religion. George borrowed a lot of ideas from that school of thought, which became apparent in some of his lyrics and quotes such as this one.

Number Five: “The Beatles saved the world from boredom”

This is quite a bold statement to make, and might even be true. We all know how much this band impacted the world, and maybe that was exactly what the world needed at the time.

Number Four: “I remember thinking I just want more. This isn’t it. Fame is not the goal. Money is not the goal…”

… To be able to know how to get peace of mind, how to be happy, is something you don’t just stumble across. You’ve got to search for it.” This is an inspiring way to describe the fact that fulfillment doesn’t come for acquiring material things, but from a deeper search. I wonder if George Harrison ever found what he was seeking.

Number Three: “All the world is birthday cake, so take a piece but not too much”

This is a wise metaphor that illustrates the importance of moderation. Enjoy what life has to offer, but don’t overdo it.

Number Two: “As long as you hate, there will be people to hate”

This means that hate perpetuates hate. It’s a mindset, and whatever mindset you have, you will find reasons for.

Number One: “With every mistake, we must surely be learning”

Instead of being disgruntled by mistakes, George saw them as learning experiences, as we all should. We hope you enjoyed this article.
