"When we went for a drive, Linda always wanted to get lost. I had an in-built panic about being lost. I always want to know where London is. I don’t want to get to, say, Staines and not know my way back. We would go down to the most obscure places, have a great time, find a little tearoom or a riverbank. She taught me little things like that, to relax and be down to earth. It was very valuable to me then, a great part of the healing process after the Beatles broke up. Linda was a very natural woman. She loved the fresh air and the freedom and the privacy of the countryside. She was just a great person to hang out with: very funny, very smart and very talented."—Paul McCartney
