#2. While there are many who would say that the race to the moon was hardly green, many others have noted that the photographs brought back from Apollo 8 created the environmental movement.

John F Kennedy quotes by Peter Jennings
#11. We do not seek the unanimity that comes to those who water down all issues to the lowest common denominator - or to those who conceal their differences behind fixed smiles - or to those who measure unity by standards of popularity and affection, instead of trust and respect. We are allies. This is a partnership, not an empire. We are bound to have differences and disappointments - and we are equally bound to bring them out into the open, to settle them where they can be settled, and to respect each other's views when they cannot be settled. - Author: John F. Kennedy
John F Kennedy quotes by John F. Kennedy

Kennedy
John F Kennedy quotes by John F. Kennedy

split asunder. - Author: John F. Kennedy

John F Kennedy quotes by Henry Rosovsky
#20. The Republican nominee-to-be, of course, is also a young man. But his approach is as old as McKinley. His party is the party of the past. His speeches are generalities from Poor Richard's Almanac. Their platform, made up of left-over Democratic planks, has the courage of our old convictions. Their pledge is a pledge to the status quo-and today there can be no status quo. - Author: John F. Kennedy
John F Kennedy quotes by John F. Kennedy

#25. In early 1961 a new president, John F. Kennedy, was told by military leaders and civilian officials that the Kingdom of Laos - of no conceivable strategic importance to the U.S. - required the presence of American troops and perhaps even tactical nuclear weapons. Why? Because if Laos fell, Asia would go red from Thailand to Indonesia. - Author: Jeff Greenfield
John F Kennedy quotes by Jeff Greenfield
#26. Through Jimi Hendrix's music you can almost see the assassinations of President John F. Kennedy and of Martin Luther King Junior, the beginnings of the Berlin Wall, Yuri Gagarin in space, Fidel Castro and Cuba, the debut of Spiderman, Martin Luther King Junior's 'I Have a Dream' speech, Ford Mustang cars, anti-Vietnam protests, Mary Quant designing the mini-skirt, Indira Gandhi becoming the Prime Minister of India, four black students sitting down at a whites-only lunch counter in Greensboro North Carolina, President Johnson pushing the Civil Rights Act, flower children growing their hair long and practicing free love, USA-funded IRA blowing up innocent civilians on the streets and in the pubs of Great Britain, Napalm bombs being dropped on the lush and carpeted fields of Vietnam, a youth-driven cultural revolution in Swinging London, police using tear gas and billy-clubs to break up protests in Chicago, Mods and Rockers battling on Brighton Beach, Native Americans given the right to vote in their own country, the United Kingdom abolishing the death penalty, and the charismatic Argentinean Marxist revolutionary Che Guevara. It's all in Jimi's absurd and delirious guitar riffs. - Author: Karl Wiggins

#29. A tax cut means higher family income and higher business profits and a balanced federal budget ... As the national income grows, the federal government will ultimately end up with more revenues.

#34. Student loans have been helpful to many. But they offer neither incentive nor assistance to those students who, by reason of family or other obligations, are unable or unwilling to go deeper into debt ...

#36. Merger Evers/John F. Kennedy/Malcolm X/Martin Luther King/Robert Kennedy/Che Guevara/Patrice Lamumba/George Jackson/Cynthia Wesley/Addie Mae Collins/Denise McNair/Carole Robertson/Viola Liuzzo
It was a decade marked by death. Violent and inevitable. Funerals became engraved on the brain, intensifying the ephemeral nature of life. For many in the South it was a decade reminiscent of earlier times, when oak trees sighed over their burdens in the wind; Spanish moss draggled blood to the ground; amen corners creaked with grief; and the thrill of being able, once again, to endure unendurable loss produced so profound an ecstasy in mourners that they strutted, without noticing their feet, along the thin backs of benches: their piercing shouts of anguish and joy never interrupted by an inglorious fall. They shared rituals for the dead to be remembered. - Author: Alice Walker
John F Kennedy quotes by Alice Walker

John F Kennedy quotes by John F. Kennedy
#39. I think the American people expect more from us than cries of indignation and attack. The times are too grave, the challenge too urgent, and the stakes too high
to permit the customary passions of political debate. - Author: John F. Kennedy
John F Kennedy quotes by John F. Kennedy

Kennedy
John F Kennedy quotes by John F. Kennedy
#48. We shall be judged more by what we do at home than what we preach abroad. - Author: John F. Kennedy
John F Kennedy quotes by John F. Kennedy
#49. In 1962, President John F. Kennedy said, "Our true choice is not between tax reduction on the one hand and avoidance of large federal deficits on the other; it is increasingly clear that no matter what party is in power, as long as our national security needs keep rising, an economy hampered by restrictive tax rates will never produce enough revenues to balance the budget - just as it will never produce enough jobs or enough profits. In short, the paradoxical truth is that the tax rates are too high today and tax revenues are too low and the soundest way to raise revenues in the long run is to cut rates now. - Author: Ronald Reagan
John F Kennedy quotes by Ronald Reagan
#50. I also want to take cognizance of the fact that this flight was made out in the open with all the possibilities of failure, which would have been damaging to our country's prestige. Because
great risks were taken in that regard, it seems to me that we have some right to claim that this open society of ours which risked much, gained much. - Author: John F. Kennedy

#57. No sane society chooses to commit national suicide. - Author: John F. Kennedy
John F Kennedy quotes by John F. Kennedy
#58. From time to time our national history has been marred by forgetfulness of the Jeffersonian principle that restraint is at the heart of liberty. In 1789 the Federalists adopted Alien and Sedition Acts in a shabby political effort to isolate the Republic from the world and to punish political criticism as seditious libel. In 1865 the Radical Republicans sought to snare private conscience in a web of oaths and affirmations of loyalty. Spokesmen for the South did service for the Nation in resisting the petty tyranny of distrustful vengeance. In the 1920's the Attorney General of the United States degraded his office by hunting political radicals as if they were Salem witches. The Nation's only gain from his efforts were the classic dissents of Holmes and Brandeis.

In our own times, the old blunt instruments have again been put to work. The States have followed in the footsteps of the Federalists and have put Alien and Sedition Acts upon their statute books. An epidemic of loyalty oaths has spread across the Nation until no town or village seems to feel secure until its servants have purged themselves of all suspicion of non-conformity by swearing to their political cleanliness.

Those who love the twilight speak as if public education must be training in conformity, and government support of science be public aid of caution.

We have also seen a sharpening and refinement of abusive power. The legislative investigation, designed and often exercised - Author: John F. Kennedy
John F Kennedy quotes by John F. Kennedy

The present tax load ... distorts economic judgments and channels an undue amount of energy into efforts to avoidtaxliabilities. - Author: John F. Kennedy
John F Kennedy quotes by John F. Kennedy
#61. It is not only the unit vote for the Presidency we are talking about, but a whole solar system of governmental power. If it is proposed to change the balance of power of one of the elements of the solar system, it is necessary to consider the others. - Author: John F. Kennedy
John F Kennedy quotes by John F. Kennedy
#62. Do you realize the responsibility I carry? I'm the only person standing between Richard Nixon and the White House. - Author: John F. Kennedy
John F Kennedy quotes by John F. Kennedy

I ask particularly that those of you who are now in school will prepare yourselves to bear the burden of leadership over the next 40 years here in the United States, and make sure that the United States - which I believe almost alone has maintained watch and ward for freedom - that the United States meet its responsibility. That is a wonderful challenge for us as a people. - Author: John F. Kennedy

#76. Stormy, tell me about where you were when John F. Kennedy died."
"It was a Friday. I was baking a pineapple upside-down cake for my bridge club. I put it in the oven and then I saw the news and forgot all about the cake and nearly burned the house down. We had to have the kitchen repainted because of all the soot." She fusses with her hair. "He was a saint, that man. A prince. If I'd met him in my heyday, we really could've had some fun. You know, I flirted with a Kennedy once at an airport. He sidled up to me at the bar and bought me a very dry gin martini. Airports used to be so very much more glamorous. People got dressed up to travel. Young people on airplanes these days, they wear those horrible sheepskin boots and pajama pants and it's an eyesore. I wouldn't go out for the mail dressed like that."
"Which Kennedy?" I ask.
"Hmm? Oh, I don't know. He had the Kennedy chin, anyway."
I bite my lip to keep from smiling. Stormy and her escapades. - Author: Jenny Han
John F Kennedy quotes by Jenny Han

John F Kennedy quotes by John F. Kennedy
#80. It is for these reasons that I believe we must expand day-care centers and provide other assistance which I have recommended to the Congress. At present, the total facilities of all the licensed day-care centers in the Nation can take care of only 185,000 children. Nearly 500,000 children under 12 must take care of themselves while their mothers work. This, it seems to me, is a formula for disaster. - Author: John F. Kennedy

#91. Aeschylus and Plato are remembered today long after the triumphs of Imperial Athens are gone. Dante outlived the ambitions of thirteenth century Florence.

Kennedy
John F Kennedy quotes by John F. Kennedy

#98. One-third of the world, it has been said, may be free- -but one-third is the victim of cruel repression

#104. There is a connection, hard to explain logically but easy to feel, between achievement in public life and progress in the arts. The age of Pericles was also the age of Phidias.

And the New Frontier for which I campaign in public life, can also be a New Frontier for American art. - Author: John F. Kennedy

John F Kennedy quotes by John F. Kennedy
#117. Unconditional war can no longer lead to unconditional victory. It can no longer serve to settle disputes. It can no longer be of concern to great powers alone. For a nuclear disaster, spread by winds and waters and fear, could well engulf the great and the small, the rich and the poor, the committed and the uncommitted alike. Mankind must put an end to war or war will put an end to mankind. - Author: John F. Kennedy
John F Kennedy quotes by John F. Kennedy

John F Kennedy quotes by John F. Kennedy
#119. Life in freedom is not easy, and democracy is not perfect. - Author: John F. Kennedy
John F Kennedy quotes by John F. Kennedy
#120. I am the Democratic Party's candidate for president who happens also to be a Catholic. I do not speak for my church on public matters - and the church does not speak for me. - Author: John F. Kennedy
John F Kennedy quotes by John F. Kennedy
#121. Ask not what your community can do for you; ask what your community can not do for anyone else. - Author: John F. Kennedy
John F Kennedy quotes by John F. Kennedy
#122. The second [presidential] term changes, and I think that John F. Kennedy certainly ran on that and he knew that second term would give him oxygen, and he needed it. Unfortunately, he didn't get there. - Author: Oliver Stone
John F Kennedy quotes by Oliver Stone
#123. The effort to improve the conditions of man, however, is not a task for the few. It is the task of all nations-acting alone, acting in groups, acting in the United Nations, for plague and pestilence, plunder and pollution, the hazards of nature and the hunger of children are the foes of every nation. The earth, the sea and the air are the concern of every nation. And science, technology and education can be the ally of every nation. - Author: John F. Kennedy
John F Kennedy quotes by John F. Kennedy
#124. Our Constitution wisely assigns both joint and separate roles to each branch of the government; and a President and a Congress who hold each other in mutual respect will neither permit nor attempt any trespass. - Author: John F. Kennedy
John F Kennedy quotes by John F. Kennedy
#125. To those peoples in the huts and villages of half the globe struggling to break the bonds of mass misery, we pledge our best efforts to help them help themselves, for whatever period is required - not because the Communists may be doing it, not because we seek their votes, but because it is right. If a free society cannot help the many who are poor, it cannot save the few who are rich. - Author: John F. Kennedy
John F Kennedy quotes by John F. Kennedy
#126. Our privileges can be no greater than our obligations. The protection of our rights can endure no longer than the performance of our responsibilities. - Author: John F. Kennedy

John F Kennedy quotes by John F. Kennedy
#128. We stand today on the edge of a new frontier - the frontier of the 1960's - a frontier of unknown opportunities and perils - a frontier of unfulfilled hopes and threats. - Author: John F. Kennedy
John F Kennedy quotes by John F. Kennedy
#129. The lesson of the last year is this: foreign policy can't be managed through the politics of personality, and our President would do well to take note of an observation John F. Kennedy made once he was in office - that all of the world's problems aren't his predecessor's fault. - Author: Sarah Palin
John F Kennedy quotes by Sarah Palin
#130. The highest duty of the writer is to remain true to himself and let the chips fall where they may. In serving his vision of the truth the artist best serves his nation. - Author: John F. Kennedy
John F Kennedy quotes by John F. Kennedy
#131. Before the assassination of President John F. Kennedy, the very word
conspiracy was seldom used by most Americans. The JFK assassination
was the seminal national event in the lives of the Baby Boomer generation.
We've heard all the clichés about the loss of our innocence, and the beginning
of public distrust in our government's leaders, being born with the events
of November 22, 1963, but there's a good deal of truth in that. President
Kennedy tapped into our innate idealism and inspired a great many people,
especially the young, like no president ever had before.
John F. Kennedy was vastly different from most of our elected presidents.
He was the first president to refuse a salary. He never attended a Bilderberg
meeting. He was the first Catholic to sit in the Oval Office, and he almost
certainly wasn't related to numerous other presidents and/or the royal family
of England, as is often the case. He was a genuine war hero, having tugged an
injured man more than three miles using only a life preserver's strap between
his teeth, after the Japanese had destroyed the boat he commanded, PT-109.
This selfless act seems even more courageous when one takes into account
Kennedy's recurring health problems and chronic bad back. He was an
intellectual and an accomplished author who wrote many of his memorable
speeches. He would never have been invited to dance naked with other
powerful men a - Author: Donald Jeffries
John F Kennedy quotes by Donald Jeffries
#132. What really counts is not the immediate act of courage or of valor, but those who bear the struggle day in and day out - not the sunshine patriots but those who are willing to stand for a long period of time. - Author: John F. Kennedy
John F Kennedy quotes by John F. Kennedy
#133. I dont think that unless a greater effort is made by the Government to win popular support that the war can be won out there. In the final analysis, it is their war. They are the ones who have to win it or lose it. We can help them, we can give them equipment, we can send our men out there as advisers, but they have to win it, the people of Viet-Nam, against the Communists. - Author: John F. Kennedy
John F Kennedy quotes by John F. Kennedy
#134. In giving rights to others which belong to them, we give rights to ourselves and to our country - Author: John F. Kennedy
John F Kennedy quotes by John F. Kennedy
#135. I'm an idealist without illusions. - Author: John F. Kennedy
John F Kennedy quotes by John F. Kennedy
#136. There are indications because of new inventions, that 10, 15, or 20 nations will have a nuclear capacity, including Red China, by the end of the Presidential office in 1964. This is extremely serious ... I think the fate not only of our own civilization, but I think the fate of world and the future of the human race, is involved in preventing a nuclear war. - Author: John F. Kennedy
John F Kennedy quotes by John F. Kennedy
#137. And as John F. Kennedy described the ideals behind what would become the Peace Corps, he issued a challenge to the students who had assembled in Ann Arbor on that October night: "on your willingness to contribute part of your life to this country," he said, will depend the answer whether a free society can compete. I think it can," he said. - Author: Barack Obama
John F Kennedy quotes by Barack Obama
#138. I think this is the most extraordinary collection of talent, of human knowledge, that has ever been gathered together at the White House, with the possible exception of when Thomas Jefferson dined alone.2 - PRESIDENT JOHN F. KENNEDY, at a dinner in honor of all living recipients of the Nobel Prize, 1962 - Author: Jon Meacham
John F Kennedy quotes by Jon Meacham
#139. Events of October 1962 indicated, as they had all through history, that control of the sea means security. Control of the seas can mean peace. Control of the seas can mean victory. The United States must control the seas if it is to protect your security ... - Author: John F. Kennedy
John F Kennedy quotes by John F. Kennedy
#140. Barack Obama is not Harry Truman, who dropped the A-bomb on Japan to stop World War II. Barack Obama is not John F. Kennedy, who lowered marginal tax rates to get economic growth and job creation. Barack Obama and the far left, they are a completely different ball of wax. - Author: Monica Crowley
John F Kennedy quotes by Monica Crowley
#141. 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. Let every nation know, whether it wishes us well or ill, that we shall pay any price, bear any burden, meet any hardship, support any friend, oppose any foe to assure the survival and the success of liberty. - Author: John F. Kennedy
John F Kennedy quotes by John F. Kennedy
#142. I believe in an America that is on the march - an America respected by all nations, friends and foes alike - an America that is moving, doing, working, trying - a strong America in a world
of peace. That peace must be based on world law and world order, on the mutual respect of all nations for the rights and powers of others and on a world economy in which no nation lacks the
ability to provide a decent standard of living for all of its people. - Author: John F. Kennedy

John F Kennedy quotes by John F. Kennedy
#146. I believe in an America that is officially neither Catholic, Protestant nor Jewish; where no public official either requests or accepts instructions on public policy from the Pope, the National Council of Churches or any other ecclesiastical source; where no religious body seeks to impose its will directly or indirectly upon the general populace or the public acts of its officials; and where religious liberty is so indivisible that an act against one church is treated as an act against all. - Author: John F. Kennedy
John F Kennedy quotes by John F. Kennedy

John F Kennedy quotes by Mehmet Murat Ildan
#154. We must face the fact that the United States is neither omnipotent nor omniscient, that we cannot impose our will upon the other 94 percent of mankind, that we cannot right every wrong or reverse every adversity, and that therefore there cannot be an American solution to every world problem. - Author: John F. Kennedy
John F Kennedy quotes by John F. Kennedy
#155. Voters are more than Catholics, Protestants or Jews. They make up their minds for many diverse reasons, good and bad. To submit the candidates to a religious test is unfair enough - to apply it to the voters is divisive, degrading and wholly unwarranted. - Author: John F. Kennedy
John F Kennedy quotes by John F. Kennedy

John F Kennedy quotes by John F. Kennedy
#159. The work I did on 'Killing Kennedy' was very meticulous and, in some ways, actually tedious. It was hard work because there is so much known about John F. Kennedy and Lee Harvey Oswald. To try to distill that into a clear narrative that's interesting and tells two great stories was a real challenge. - Author: Kelly Masterson
John F Kennedy quotes by Kelly Masterson

[Undelivered remarks for Dallas Trade Mart, November 22 1963] - Author: John F. Kennedy
John F Kennedy quotes by John F. Kennedy
#162. The labor movement is people. Our unions have brought millions of men and women together, made them members one of another, and given them common tools for common goals. Their goals are goals for all America - and their enemies are the enemies for progress. The two cannot be separated. - Author: John F. Kennedy
John F Kennedy quotes by John F. Kennedy

John F Kennedy quotes by John F. Kennedy
#167. What church I go to on Sunday, what dogma of the Catholic Church I believe in, is my business; and whatever faith any other American has is his business. - Author: John F. Kennedy
John F Kennedy quotes by John F. Kennedy
#168. John F. Kennedy asked us what we could do for America. This Democratic Party asks what can government give you. Don't worry about paying the bill, it's on your kids and grandkids. - Author: Artur Davis
John F Kennedy quotes by Artur Davis
#169. But however close we sometimes seem to that dark and final abyss, let no man of peace and freedom despair. For he does not stand alone. - Author: John F. Kennedy
John F Kennedy quotes by John F. Kennedy
#170. Has Bill Clinton inspired idealism in the young, as he himself was inspired by John F. Kennedy? Or has he actually reduced their idealism? Surely part of the answer lies in Clinton's personal moral lapse with Monica Lewinsky. But more important was his sin of omission - his failure to embrace a moral cause beyond popularity. - Author: Arlie Russell Hochschild
John F Kennedy quotes by Arlie Russell Hochschild
#171. Members of the Congress, the Constitution makes us not rivals for power but partners for progress. We are all trustees for the American people, custodians of the American heritage. It is my task to report the State of the Union
to improve it is the task of us all. - Author: John F. Kennedy
John F Kennedy quotes by John F. Kennedy
#172. US Vice President Joe Biden gave the US government's real view of its regional and Syrian allies with undiplomatic frankness when speaking at the John F. Kennedy Jr. Forum at Harvard University's Institute of Politics on October 2. He told his audience that Saudi Arabia, Turkey, and UAE were so determined to take down Assad and essentially have a proxy Sunni-Shia war. What did they do? They poured hundreds of millions of dollars and tens of thousands of tons of weapons into anyone who would fight against Assad, except that the people who were being supplied were al-Nusra and al-Qaeda and the extremist elements of jihadis coming from other parts of the world. - Author: Patrick Cockburn
John F Kennedy quotes by Patrick Cockburn
#173. If we cannot now end our differences, at least we can help make the world safe for diversity. - Author: John F. Kennedy
John F Kennedy quotes by John F. Kennedy
#174. The rising tide lifts all the boats. - Author: John F. Kennedy
John F Kennedy quotes by John F. Kennedy
#175. I believe in an America where the separation of church and state is absolute - where no Catholic prelate would tell the President (should he be Catholic) how to act, and no Protestant minister would tell his parishioners for whom to vote - where no church or church school is granted any public funds or political preference - and where no man is denied public office merely because his religion differs from the President who might appoint him or the people who might elect him.

I believe in an America that is officially neither Catholic, Protestant nor Jewish - where no public official either requests or accepts instructions on public policy from the Pope, the National Council of Churches or any other ecclesiastical source - where no religious body seeks to impose its will directly or indirectly upon the general populace or the public acts of its officials - and where religious liberty is so indivisible that an act against one church is treated as an act against all.

John F Kennedy quotes by John F. Kennedy
#176. It is pardonable for children to yell that they believe in fairies, but it is somehow sinister when the piping note shifts from the puerile to the senile. - Author: Christopher Hitchens
John F Kennedy quotes by Christopher Hitchens
#177. If my church attempted to influence me in a way which was improper or which affected adversely my responsibilities as a public servant sworn to uphold the Constitution, then I would reply to them that this was an improper action on their part. It was one to which I could not subscribe. - Author: John F. Kennedy
John F Kennedy quotes by John F. Kennedy
#178. Those who came before us made certain that this country rode the first waves of the industrial revolution, the first waves of modern invention and the first wave of nuclear power. And this generation does not intend to founder in the backwash of the coming age of space. We mean to be part of it-we mean to lead it. - Author: John F. Kennedy
John F Kennedy quotes by John F. Kennedy
#179. Neither smiles nor frowns, neither good intentions nor harsh words, are a substitute for strength. - Author: John F. Kennedy
John F Kennedy quotes by John F. Kennedy
#180. All over the world, particularly in the newer nations, young men are coming to power
men who are not bound by the traditions of the past
men who are not blinded by the old fears and hates and rivalries
young men who can cast off the old slogans and delusions and suspicions. - Author: John F. Kennedy
John F Kennedy quotes by John F. Kennedy
#181. We must formulate, with both imagination and restraint, a new approach to the Middle East - not pressing our case so hard that the Arabs feel their neutrality and nationalism are threatened ... while at the same time trying to hasten the inevitable Arab acceptance of the permanence of Israel ... We must ... seek a permanent settlement among Arabs and Israelis based not on an armed truce but on mutual self-interest. - Author: John F. Kennedy
John F Kennedy quotes by John F. Kennedy

John F Kennedy quotes by John F. Kennedy
#183. Life isn't fair. In never was and never will be. - Author: John F. Kennedy
John F Kennedy quotes by John F. Kennedy
#184. John F. Kennedy, who seized the White House from Richard Nixon in a frenzied campaign that turned a whole generation of young Americans into political junkies, got shot in the head for his efforts, murdered in Dallas by some hapless geek named Oswald who worked for either Castro, the mob, Jimmy Hoffa, the CIA, his dominatrix landlady or the odious, degenerate FBI chief J. Edgar Hoover. The list is long and crazy - maybe Marilyn Monroe's first husband fired those shots from the grassy knoll. Who knows? - Author: Hunter S. Thompson
John F Kennedy quotes by Hunter S. Thompson
#185. Success has many fathers. - Author: John F. Kennedy
John F Kennedy quotes by John F. Kennedy

John F Kennedy quotes by John F. Kennedy
#187. Mankind must put an end to war - or war will put an end to mankind.
[Address before the United Nations, September 25 1961] - Author: John F. Kennedy
John F Kennedy quotes by John F. Kennedy
#188. I believe in an America where the rights that I have described are enjoyed by all, regardless of their race or their creed or their national origin - where every citizen is free to think and speak as he pleases and write and worship as he pleases - and where every citizen is free to vote as he pleases, without instructions from anyone, his employer, the union leader or his clergyman. - Author: John F.

John F Kennedy quotes by John F. Kennedy
#191. I never have believed in coincidence, I'm not an idiot. Everything it have a reason check out series "11.22.63"- The Assasination of John F Kennedy or check out "Monk" - The Detective who doesn't believe in coincidence. SO DO I!
I can think again and again and I'm sure that my father didn't do that there isn't logic before few days to come and to apologize and then suicide what's the logic???? - Author: Deyth Banger
John F Kennedy quotes by Deyth Banger
#192. There is a line from Dante that says, "The arrow seen before cometh less rudely." President John F. Kennedy put one aspect of the same thought into one of his state of the union messages this way: "The time to repair the roof is when the sun is shining." The Boy Scouts say it best of all: "Be prepared." That isn't just cracker-barrel wisdom with us; it is theology. "If ye are prepared ye shall not fear." (D&C 38:30) - Author: Jeffrey R. Holland
John F Kennedy quotes by Jeffrey R. Holland

John F Kennedy quotes by John F. Kennedy
#195. So let us persevere. Peace need not be impracticable, and war need not be inevitable. By defining our goal more clearly, by making it seem more manageable and less remote, we can help all peoples to see it, to draw hope from it, and to move irresistibly toward it. - Author: John F. Kennedy
John F Kennedy quotes by John F. Kennedy
#196. When you have seven percent unemployed, you have ninety-three percent working. - Author: John F. Kennedy

#198. We go into space because whatever mankind must undertake, free men must fully share. - Author: John F. Kennedy
John F Kennedy quotes by John F. Kennedy
#199. One hundred years of delay have passed since President Lincoln freed the slaves, yet their heirs, their grandsons, are not fully free. They are not yet freed from the bonds of injustice. They are not yet freed from social and economic oppression. And this nation, for all its hopes and all its boasts, will not be fully free until all its citizens are free. - Author: John F. Kennedy
John F Kennedy quotes by John F. Kennedy
#200. War and hunger and ignorance and despair know no religious barriers. - Author: John F. Kennedy
John F Kennedy quotes by John F. Kennedy
#201. I'm fascinated by rap and by hip-hop. I think there's a lot of poetry in it. There's a lot of anger, a lot of social energy in it. And I think you'd better listen to it pretty carefully, 'cause it's important. - Author: John F. Kerry
John F Kennedy quotes by John F. Kerry
#202. Because ours is such a free and prosperous society, it is easier for Christians to feel secure by presuming on instead of depending on God's grace. To many believers become satisfied with physical blessings and have little desire for spiritual blessings. - Author: John F. MacArthur Jr.
John F Kennedy quotes by John F. MacArthur Jr.
#203. Exulting in Christ is evidence of the Spirit's work! The focus of the church is not on the dove but on the cross, and that's the way the Spirit would have it. As J. I. Packer puts it, "The Spirit's message to us is never, 'Look at me; listen to me; come to me; get to know me,' but always, 'Look at him, and see his glory; listen to him, and hear his word; go to him, and have life; get to know him, and taste his gift of joy and peace. - Author: John F. MacArthur Jr.
John F Kennedy quotes by John F. MacArthur Jr.

#206. In a true free market economy, you can't make yourself rich without enriching your community. - Author: Robert F. Kennedy, Jr.
John F Kennedy quotes by Robert F. Kennedy, Jr.
#207. The eye and soul are caressed in the contemplation of form and colour. The subtle changes of colour over a surface - transitions that are like music - are intangible in their reaction upon us. There is an immediate sensuous appeal! - Author: John F. Carlson
John F Kennedy quotes by John F. Carlson
#208. Exposition presupposes an exegetical process to extract the God-intended meaning of Scripture and an explanation of that meaning in a contemporary way. - Author: John F. MacArthur Jr.
John F Kennedy quotes by John F. MacArthur Jr.
#209. Martin Luther King challenged the conscience of my generation, and his words and his legacy continue to move generations to action today at home and around the world. His love and faith is alive in millions of Americans who volunteer each day in soup kitchens or in schools, or who refused to ignore the suffering of millions they'd never met in far-away places when a tsunami brought unthinkable destruction. His vision and his passion is alive in churches and on campuses when millions stand up against the injustice of discrimination anywhere, or the indifference that leaves too many behind. - Author: John F. Kerry

John F Kennedy quotes by David Gallie
#211. Twenty-two percent of Americans say their primary news source is Fox News. It's divided our country in a way that we haven't been divided probably since the Civil War, and its empowered large corporations to get certain kinds of politicians and ideologues who are in the United State Congress elected
the Tea Party ideologues who control the Republican Party. - Author: Robert F. Kennedy, Jr.
John F Kennedy quotes by Robert F. Kennedy, Jr.
#212. Let no one be discouraged by the belief there is nothing one person can do against the enormous array of the world's ills, misery, ignorance, and violence. Few will have the greatness to bend history, but each of us can work to change a small portion of events. And in the total of all those acts will be written the history of a generation. - Author: Robert F. Kennedy
John F Kennedy quotes by Robert F. Kennedy
#213. The results of that charismatic takeover have been devastating. In recent history, no other movement has done more to damage the cause of the gospel, to distort the truth, and to smother the articulation of sound doctrine. Charismatic theology has turned the evangelical church into a cesspool of error and a breeding ground for false teachers. It has warped genuine worship through unbridled emotionalism, polluted prayer with private gibberish, contaminated true spirituality with unbiblical mysticism, and corrupted faith by turning it into a creative force for speaking worldly desires into existence. By elevating the authority of experience over the authority of Scripture, the Charismatic Movement has destroyed the church's immune system - uncritically granting free access to every imaginable form of heretical teaching and practice. - Author: John F. MacArthur Jr.
John F Kennedy quotes by John F. MacArthur Jr.
#214. As we pursue our strategies world-wide, we accept a social and environmental responsibility as well. These responsibilities include the promotion of a sustainable economy and recognition of the accountability we have to the economies, environments, and communities where we do business around the world. - Author: John F. Smith, Jr.
John F Kennedy quotes by John F. Smith, Jr.
#215. I was next to Bobby [Kennedy] when he was shot. It was hideous. Part of me wanted to crawl away. I couldn't ... I still wake up in the night and think about it. I even remember the f-stop. It was 1.4. - Author: Harry Benson
John F Kennedy quotes by Harry Benson
#216. I still believe Americas destiny is to become a living testament to what free human beings can accomplish by acting in unity. - Author: John F. Kerry
John F Kennedy quotes by John F. Kerry
#217. 2The kings of the earth set themselves, And the rulers take counsel together, Against the LORD and against His Anointed, saying, 3"Let us break Their bonds in pieces And cast away Their cords from us." 4He who sits in the heavens shall laugh; - Author: John F. MacArthur Jr.
John F Kennedy quotes by John F. MacArthur Jr.
#218. Paul was far more concerned with obeying his divine calling than with gaining man's approval. Only one thing mattered - pleasing the Master. - Author: John F. MacArthur Jr.
John F Kennedy quotes by John F. MacArthur Jr.
#219. Always do what you're afraid to do-Robert F. Kennedy - Author: Evan Thomas
John F Kennedy quotes by Evan Thomas
#220. Excellent ministers cannot be those who yearn for earthly applause. Neither can they be lovers of earthly comfort. The life of ministry is not a life of leisure.
No ministry of any value comes without pain. I often encounter young men headed for the ministry who are looking for a church without problems, a ministry without challenges, a congregation that will make life easy. There is no such place for the faithful preacher of the Word. The notion that ministry can be both effective and painless is a lie. You will encounter hardship if you preach the unadulterated Word. And when adversity strikes, you have two choices. You can endure and remain steadfast, or you can compromise. The faithful minister holds the line for the truth. You cannot do that and escape suffering (2 Tim. 3:12). - Author: John F. MacArthur Jr.
John F Kennedy quotes by John F. MacArthur Jr.
#221. Fear not the path of Truth for the lack of People walking on it. - Author: Robert F. Kennedy
John F Kennedy quotes by Robert F. Kennedy
#222. Our purpose now is to reclaim democracy itself. We are here to affirm that when Americans stand up and speak their minds and say America can do better, that is not a challenge to patriotism; it is the heart and soul of patriotism. - Author: John F. Kerry
John F Kennedy quotes by John F. Kerry
#223. Probably "I love my life" would be something I would say out loud to the planet - just that positive affirmation.

John F Kennedy quotes by John F. Kerry
#233. No spiritual exercise is such a blending of complexity and simplicity. It is the simplest form of speech that infant lips can try, yet the sublimest strains that reach the Majesty on high. It is as appropriate to the aged philosopher as to the little child. It is the ejaculation of a moment and the attitude of a lifetime. It is the expression of the rest of faith and of the fight of faith. It is an agony and an ecstasy. It is submissive and yet importunate. In the one moment it lays hold of God and binds the devil. It can be focused on a single objective and it can roam the world. It can be abject confession and rapt adoration. - Author: John F. MacArthur Jr.

#247. Commentator Arthur W. Pink wrote: If God is in heaven then prayer needs to be a thing of the heart and not of the lips, for no physical voice on earth can rend the skies, but sighs and groans will reach the ears of God. If we are to pray to God in heaven, then our souls must be detached from all the earth. If we pray to God in heaven, then faith must wing our petitions.4 - Author: John F. MacArthur Jr.
