Yoko One Quotes

I just borrowed a tape recorder and was doing experiments in breathing and stuff. Then I played it backwards, and it was very exciting. So I imitated that, did all sorts of stuff imitating that backwardness. That's how all the screaming stuff started. Even in those days, it was something you could do better on tape than live. Then I went into rock and it became straighter. I don't do it now anymore because a lot of people do it now. Back then it was a statement. - Ono, in Interview

... it was the British press who labeled me the Dragon Lady. A dragon is a very powerful creature, and I've decided not to be a victim, but to change my fate. - Yoko Ono

Spring passes and one remembers one's innocence Summer passes and one remembers one's exuberance Autumn passes and one remembers one's reverence Winter passes and one remembers one's perseverance. Yoko Ono
