It’s an interesting thought. But it looks like John Lennon didn’t say about this.
You can read discussion about the source in Wikipedia: Is this a real quote from John Lennon? – Wikipedia:Reference desk/Archives/Humanities/2011 October 30 – Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

It’s interesting to see why people put anonymous quote in some famous person. So it feels like a bit deceiving. So I can understand people can feel uncomfortable with this quote.
