George Harrison passed away 21 years ago today, and he left behind an incredible body of work for us to enjoy. Deep within those beautiful songs of his are some sage words that have surely made me think and brought me comfort over the years. I wanted to share a few of my favorites with you today. Miss you, George.

  • 1. Within You Without You

    When you’ve seen beyond yourself
    Then you may find peace of mind is waiting there.
    And the time will come when you see we’re all one
    And life flows on within you and without you.

  • 2. Isn't It A Pity

    Some things take so long
    but how do I explain
    when not too many people
    can see we’re all the same?
    And because of all their tears
    their eyes can’t hope to see
    the beauty that surrounds them.
    Isn’t it a pity.

  • 3. Beware Of Darkness

    Watch out now, take care
    beware of the thoughts that linger
    winding up inside your head.
    The hopelessness around you
    in the dead of night.

    Beware of sadness.
    It can hit you,
    it can hurt you,
    make you sore and what is more,
    that is not what you are here for.

  • 4. Be Here Now

    Remember now,
    be here now.
    And it’s not like it was before.
    The past, was, be here now.
    And it’s not like it was before
    it was.

  • 5. The Answer's At The End

    Scan not a friend with a microscopic glass.
    You know his faults, now let his foibles pass.
    Life is one long enigma, my friend
    So read on, read on,
    The answer’s at the end.

  • 6. See Yourself

    It’s easier to tell a lie than it is to tell the truth.
    It’s easier to kill a fly than it is to turn it loose.
    It’s easier to criticize somebody else
    Than to see yourself.

  • 7. It's All Too Much

    It’s all too much for me to take
    The love that’s shining all around you
    All the world’s a birthday cake
    So take a piece, but not too much.

  • 8. Save The World

    We’ve got to save the world
    Someone’s children they may need it
    So far we’ve seen
    The big business of extinction bleed it
    We’ve got to save the world.

  • 9. Any Road

    If you don’t know where you’re going,
    Any road will take you there.

  • 10. Brainwashed

    The soul does not love, it is love itself.
    It does not exist, it is existence itself.
    It does not know, it is knowledge itself.
