Quotations by John F. Kennedy

|

But let us begin. Now the trumpet summons us again – not as a call to bear arms, though arms we need – not as a call to battle, though embattled we are – but a call to bear the burden of a long twilight struggle, year in and year out, “rejoicing in hope, patient in tribulation”- a struggle against the common enemies of man: tyranny, poverty, disease and war itself.

|

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

|

Let us think of education as the means of developing our greatest abilities, because in each of us there is a private hope and dream which, fulfilled, can be translated into benefit for everyone and greater strength for our nation.

|

If a free society cannot help the many who are poor, it cannot save the few who are rich.

|

Tolerance implies no lack of commitment to one’s own beliefs. Rather it condemns the oppression or persecution of others.
