"I fought for three reasons. I can’t remember what they were. The first reason gets you in, and the reason when you are in is staying alive. I won’t know the reason they find afterwards, but it will be a very good one for why it was fought. I’m sure I’ll be glad."

"Because if you don’t know who you are and where you’ve come from and where you’re going, really, what is life? You can have all the money in the world and all the glory. But if you don’t know what is the point, then your life is empty." - George Harrison, LA Times telephone interview, early May 1997

It’s a little small and may be a bit difficult to decipher, so I’ve typed up George’s foreword:
'What's Derek really like?' Harry Nilsson once asked me. 'I mean, I know him, but you really know him. So what’s he like?’ Well, what could I say? What can I say? He’s my friend - that’s why I’m writing this introduction - but of course he’s much more than that.
