"George’s most moving tribute to ineffability is his one super-hit single "Something" (1969).  In it something attracts the singer, but the singer neither specifies what the something is nor identifies the “she” who inspires.  He refers only to his lover’s acts of moving, wooing, and smiling.  The song beautifully pairs lyrical uncertainty with a melody that descends over accompanying chords that become increasingly dissonant.  Despite its elusive quality, the song stands as a supreme, affirmation of love, the attraction of the Other, and the reality of that something that connects one with another in the universe.”

"Those guys’ inability to express love for one another was classic. The exception is Ringo, who says [in the film], ‘I love George, and George loved me.’ That wouldn’t have been so easy for Paul. […]
[In rehearsals] Paul had to admit that he didn’t know ‘All Things Must Pass,’ and that was an awful thing to confront. It was huge humble-pie stuff for Paul to be among people who he may have thought had a better relationship with George than he did. But I believe Paul missed George as much as - if not more than - anybody."

"I Me Mine is the ego problem. There are two ‘I’s: the little ‘i’ when people say ‘I am this’; and the big ‘I’ - is duality and ego. There is nothing that isn’t part of the complete whole. When the little ‘i’ merges into the big ‘I’ then you are really smiling!"

—George Harrison
