One day, whether you
you will stumble upon
someone who will start
a fire in you that cannot die.
However, the saddest,
most awful truth
you will ever come to find––
is they are not always
with whom we spend our lives.
George Harrison photographed by Pattie Boyd.
"The Maharishi had invited us all to go to India to his ashram in the Indian Himalaya. We were there studying meditation for two and a half months. While the other three Beatles went back to London to start the beginning of their Apple empire, George and I went to Madras for a week’s relaxation. I took this photograph of George one morning, as I thought the light on his face was lovely. I think this was the last time that I saw him looking so calm." - Pattie Boyd, National Geographic
British Beatles Fan Club: “Can you sum up George in three words?”
Pattie Boyd: “Sensitive, loyal and caring.”
LA Magazine: “Is there a photograph you’ve taken that’s your favorite in some way?”
Pattie: “Yes, it’s a photograph of George. He’s leaning back on a bed, and we had just been meditating in India for three months with the Maharishi, and then he and I went down to south India to relax before going to London, where he would get really busy with the Beatles and their new creation, which was Apple. And he’s lying back, and he just looks so calm and peaceful. I think that was really the last time he was so calm and peaceful. After that they all had to work at being businessmen as well as being creative people.” (Source)
