They say ignorance is bliss…but bliss is not ignorance – it’s the opposite of that, which is knowledge. And there’s a lot of people who have fear. Basically I feel fortunate to have realised what the goal is in life. There’s no point in dying having gone through your life without knowing who you are or what the purpose of life is.
That’s a quote from George Harrison, whom Martin Scorsese’s new documentary portrays as equal or superior to his fellow Beatles in musical talent. Mick Brown’s piece on the film and Harrison is well worth your time if you are a fan of Fab Four.
