A Quote by John Fitzgerald Kennedy on brevity, courage, dedication, failure, future, history, integrity, judgment, men, questions, service, and success

. . . Of those to whom much is given, much is required. And when at some future date the high court of history sits in judgment on each of us - recording whether in our brief span of service we fulfilled our responsibilities to the state - our success or failure, in whatever office we may hold, will be measured by the answers to four questions - were we truly men of courage . . . were we truly men of judgment . . . were we truly men of integrity . . . were we truly men of dedication?

The New Frontier I speak of is not a set of promises - it is a set of challenges. It sums up not what I intend to offer the American people, but what I intent to ask of them.
