quote of the moment

<context: julian lennon on john lennon>

"'He was young and didn't know what the hell he was doing,' Julian told Record Collector magazine in 2011. 'That's the reason I haven't had children yet. I didn't want to do the same thing. No, I'm not ready. I want to know who I am first.' Hearing Dad's peace-loving stance perpetually celebrated got to Julian. 'I have to say that, from my point of view, I felt he was a hypocrite,' he told the London Telegraph in 1998. 'Dad could talk about peace and love out loud to the world but he could never show it to the people who supposedly meant the most to him: his wife and son. How can you talk about peace and love and have a family in bits and pieces--no communication, adultery, divorce? You can't do it, not if you're being true and honest with yourself.'"
