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 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.

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.
