John F. Kennedy

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

  • War will exist until that distant day when the conscientious objector enjoys the same reputation and prestige that the warrior does today.

  • Let us never negotiate out of fear. But let us never fear to negotiate.

  • There is, in addition to a courage with which men die, a courage by which men must live.

  • Do not pray for easy lives. pray to be stronger men.

  • Change is the law of life.

  • If we cannot now end our differences, at least we can help make the world safe for diversity.

  • Once you say you're going to settle for second, that's what happens to you in life, I find.

  • Everything changes but change itself.

  • 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.

  • The human mind is our fundamental resource.

  • We must use time as a tool, not as a crutch.

  • Mankind must put an end to war before war puts an end to mankind.

  • A child miseducated is a child lost.

  • We should not let our fears hold us back from pursuing our hopes.

  • Leadership and learning are indispensable to each other.

  • There are risks and costs to a program of action. But they are far less than the long - range risks and costs of comfortable inaction.

  • I'm an idealist without illusions.

  • If art is to nourish the roots of our culture, society must set the artist free to follow his vision wherever it takes him.

  • Peace is a daily, a weekly, a monthly process, gradually changing opinions, slowly eroding old barriers, quietly building new structures. And however undramatic the pursuit of peace, the pursuit must go on.

  • The greater our knowledge increases the more our ignorance unfolds.

  • Children are the world's most valuable resource and its best hope for the future.

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

  • If we are strong, our strength will speak for itself. If we are weak, words will be no help.

  • It is an unfortunate fact that we can secure peace only by preparing for war.

  • Forgive your enemies, but never forget their names.

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

  • The one unchangeable certainty is that nothing is certain or unchangeable.
