" It is not the water in the fields that brings true development, rather, it is water in the eyes, or compassion for fellow beings, that brings about real development. "
"Imagine" by John Lennon is like a Green Hymn!
Green is Sustainability but without Harmony no amount of Hot Boxes and Earthworms will save the Planet!
Neither will the best of credit control systems and revenue enhancement projects rescue municipalities from revenue loss.
John Lennon wrote lyrics and poetry as easily as leaves falling off trees.
The Universal Declaration of Human Rights (UDHR) is intertwined and interwoven throughout the lyrics of Imagine. Yet he probably never read a single one of the 30 UDHR articles - the idea of peace and freedom came naturally to him. Lennon could have sat comfortably with the likes of Gandhi and Mandela - despite his maverickness!
Imagine there's no heaven It's easy if you try No hell below us Above us only sky Imagine all the people Living for today ...
Imagine there's no country It is n't hard to do Nothing to kill or die for And no religion too Imagine all the people Living life in peace ...
You, you may say I'm a dreamer But I'm not the only one I hope someday you'll join us And the world will be as one.
Imagine no possession I wonder if you can No need for greed or hunger A brotherhood of Man Imagine all the people Sharing all the world ...
You, you may say I'm a dreamer But I'm not the only one I hope someday you'll join us And the world will live as One.
