"Make your own dream.
That's the Beatles' story, isn't it?
That's Yoko's story, that's what I'm saying now. Produce your own dream.
If you want to save Peru, go save Peru. It's quite possible to do
anything, but not to put it on the leaders and the parking meters. Don't
expect Jimmy Carter or Ronald Reagan or John Lennon or Yoko Ono or Bob
Dylan or Jesus Christ to come and do it for you. You have to do it
That's what the great masters and mistresses have been saying
ever since time began. They can point the way, leave signposts and
little instructions in various books that are now called holy and
worshipped for the cover of the book and not for what it says, but the
instructions are all there for all to see, have always been and always
new under the sun. All the roads lead to Rome. And people cannot provide
it for you. I can't wake you up. You can wake you up. I can't cure you.
You can cure you."
John Lennon, 1980
