We've got this gift of love, but love is like a precious plant. You can't just accept it and leave it in the cupboard or just think it's going to get on by itself. You've got to keep watering it. You've got to really look after it and nurture it.
John Lennon (1940–1980), British rock musician. Man of the Decade, broadcast, December 30, 1969, ATV.
