1917 - 1963

A Quote by John Fitzgerald Kennedy on bitterness, discipline, friendship, generations, home, human rights, nations, peace, time, war, and world

Let the word go forth from this time and place, to friend and foe alike, that the torch has been passed to a new generation of Americans, born in this century, tempered by war, disciplined by a hard and bitter peace, proud of our ancient heritage, and unwilling to witness or permit the slow undoing of those human rights to which this nation has always been committed, and to which we are committed today, at home and around the world!

A Quote by John Fitzgerald Kennedy on challenge, people, and promises

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.

A Quote by John Fitzgerald Kennedy on peace

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.

A Quote by John Fitzgerald Kennedy on belief, desires, destiny, hope, lies, peace, people, problems, rest, and work

But peace does not rest in the charters and covenants alone. It lies in the hearts and minds of all people. So let us not rest all our hopes on parchment and on paper, let us strive to build peace, a desire for peace, a willingness to work for peace in the hearts and minds of all of our people. I believe that we can. I believe the problems of human destiny are not beyond the reach of human beings.
