John F. Kennedy
President of the United States from 1961 to 1963.

  • Change is the law of life, and those who look only to the past or the present are certain to miss the future.

  • To those people in the huts and villages of half the globe struggling to break the bonds of mass misery, we pledge our best efforts to help them help themselves, for whatever period is required, not because the Communists may be doing it, not because we seek their votes, but because it is right. If a free society cannot help the many who are poor, it cannot save the few who are rich.

  • You know nothing for sure...except the fact that you know nothing for sure.

  • Conformity is the jailer of freedom and the enemy of growth.

  • Forgive your enemies, but never forget their names.

  • My fellow Americans, ask not what your country can do for you ask what you can do for your country.

  • We are not afraid to entrust the American people with unpleasant facts, foreign ideas, alien philosophies and competitive values. For a nation that is afraid to let its people judge the truth and falsehood of an open market is a nation that is afraid of its people.

  • There is a terrific disadvantage in not having the abrasive quality of the press applied to you daily. . . . Even though we never like it, and even though we wish they didnít write it, and even though we disapprove, there isnít any doubt that we could not do the job at all in a free society without a very, very active press.

  • No one has been barred on account of his race from fighting or dying for America there are no "white" or "colored" signs on the foxholes or graveyards of battle.

  • The ignorance of one voter in a democracy impairs the security of all.

  • Mankind must put an end to war, or war will put an end to mankind.

  • Those who make peaceful revolution impossible will make violent revolution inevitable.

  • We have the power to make this the best generation of mankind in the history of the world - or to make it the last.

  • In the long history of the world, only a few generations have been granted the role of defending freedom in its hour of maximum danger... The energy, the faith, the devotion which we bring to this endeavor will light our country and all who serve it, and the glow from that fire can truly light the world.
