George Harrison was asked in 1987, if he still believed that all you need is love? This was twenty years after the Beatles had recorded the song. The question was part of a TV show looking back on the "Summer of Love"

His answer was simple, direct, and full of convection.

"Yes, absolutely!"

Love (Emmett Fox, 1937)

There is no difficulty that enough love will not conquer,
No disease that enough love will not heal,
No door that enough love will not bridge,
No wall that enough love will not throw down,
No sin that enough love will not redeem . . .
It makes no difference how deeply seated may be the trouble,
How hopeless the outlook, how muddled the tangle,
How great the mistake. A sufficient realization of love
will dissolve it all. If only you could love enough,
you could be the happiest and, most powerful being in the world.

All You Need Is Love (Lennon/McCartney, 1967)

There's nothing you can do that can't be done.
Nothing you can sing that can't be sung.
Nothing you can say but you can learn how to play the game

There's nothing you can make that can't be made.
No one you can save that can't be saved.
Nothing you can do but you can learn how to be in time

There's nothing you can know that isn't known.
Nothing you can see that isn't shown.
Nowhere you can be that isn't where you're meant to be.

It's easy.

All you need is Love
