John F. Kennedy

1917 - 1963

A Quote by John Fitzgerald Kennedy on arrogance, art, concern, corruption, diversity, existence, limitations, poetry, power, and richness

When power leads man toward arrogance, poetry reminds him of his limitations. When power narrows the areas of man's concern, poetry reminds him of the richness and diversity of his existence. When power corrupts, poetry cleanses, for art establishes the basic human truths which must serve as the touchstone of our judgement.

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

in

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.
