"George was so generous and ‘grateful to anyone that is happy or free.’ A good moment to him was always worth making better." - Olivia Harrison on George, from her foreword for the Rolling Stone tribute book Harrison
Courtesy of YouTube, another George Harrison song that’s brilliant (and was exempt from the album “Somewhere in England” by the record company) - “Sat Singing.”
Posting this beautiful Harrisong again in honor of George’s birthday. ♥
Anonymous asked you:
Alright, so, I consider you one of THE George fans on here. I gotta ask you - what day do you think is his birthday? Why?
Scan - George Harrison and some of the presents that arrived along with thousands of cards, contained in 52 sacks of mail delivered to the EMI headquarters at Manchester Square, London, for his 21st birthday, 25 February 1964
His parents received two van-loads full of presents and cards back home in Liverpool for George as well, according to The Beatles Files. Speaking of presents: those two van-loads were “crammed with teddy bears, records, razors, socks, shirts, hair brushes, shampoo by the gallon, and untold boxes of jelly babies. One fan even sent a full-sized door which George was supposed to unlock with of his hundreds of twenty-first ceremonial keys.”
George’s mother is quoted by The Beatles Files: “I telephoned him to wish him a happy birthday soon after midnight, at the hour at which he was born. We sang to each other and had a good laugh.”
George spent the day at EMI Studios, Abbey Road, recording with the band.
"On George’s twenty-first birthday, nearly one million cards, letters and gifts arrived at the Harrison house […] - seven truckloads of post that filled the entry of their home for weeks. It was, according to the post office, the most mail ever delivered to one address outside the royal family."- Here Comes The Sun by Joshua M. Greene
Courtesy of YouTube (user: beatlesaus), George Harrison interviewed on his 21st birthday, 50 years ago today, 25 February 1964.
Alright, so the phone pouch and case are the same as ever anyway (thanks to Amazon), but in honor of George’s birthday, one of my T-shirts is set as well. :)

Scans - Happy Birthday to the most remarkable soul… George Harrison ♥
"Each person has to find for himself a way for inner realisation. I still believe that’s the only reason we’re on this planet. It’s like going to school again: each soul is potentially divine and the goal is to manifest that divinty. Everything else is secondary." - George Harrison
"[T]he important thing in life is to ask: ‘Who am I?’, ‘Where am I going?’ and ‘Where have I come from?’" - George Harrison
