Default your favorite line from across the universe

Mine is....

"Limitless, undying love, which shines around me like a million suns"

Actually might be my fav Beatle lyric ever. The thought of 'a millions suns' is so evocative.

That's my favourite line as well, although I love the whole song. I used to change my mind about my favourite song about every two days... but when it changed to "Across the Universe", it stayed that way for a year (so far). I've never loved a song as much as I love this one.

my favorite line is:
Thoughts meander like a restless wind inside a letter box they
Tumble blindly as they make their way
Across the universe

I've always liked the bit in the other language (and now I can't remember what it is... *sigh*). Gives me chills, but that's a whole other topic.

It's so hard to pick a favorite line. "Across the Universe" is one of the most poetic and beautifully evocative of all Beatles songs. I think perhaps I particularly fancy "images of broken light" or "endless rain into a paper cup", but then again, as you all have mentioned, "a million suns" is just so perfect . . . hmm . . . no, I cannot decide!

"Jai Guru Deva Om" is how I've always seen. I don't know if that's right or not, but I agree -- it gives me chills too!

Yep, and it means: Live Forever Guru Teacher Heavenly The Vibration of the Universe

My very favorite is the opening line, "Words are flowing out like endless rain into a paper cup". That's just absolutely brilliant, and John's voice at the beginning of the song gives me goosebumps!

This song has so many great lines! "Nothing's gonna change my world" is just so bittersweet now.
I guess my favorite line would be "limitless undying love which shines around me like a million suns and calls me on and on across the universe"
