A Quote by John Fitzgerald Kennedy on art, creativity, impulses, people, society, spontaneity, and understanding

A Quote by John Fitzgerald Kennedy on america, blessings, citizenship, conscience, deed, earth, freedom, god, good, history, judgment, love, reward, work, and world

My fellow citizens of the world, ask not what America will do for you, but what together we can do for the freedom of man. With a good conscience our only sure reward, with history the final judge of our deeds, let us go forth to lead the land we love, asking His blessing and His help, but knowing that here on earth God's work must truly be our own.
