- JFK Innaugural Address, 1961

Liberty without learning is always in peril, and learning without liberty is always in vain.

Those who make peaceful revolution impossible will make violent revolution inevitable.

And so, my fellow Americans, ask not what your country can do for you; ask what you can do for your country.

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.

As we express our gratitude, we must never forget that the highest appreciation is not to utter words, but to live by them.

Forgive your enemies, but never forget their names.

Geography has made us neighbors. History has made us friends. Economics has made us partners, and necessity has made us allies. Those whom God has so joined together, let no man put asunder.

Leadership and learning are indispensable to each other.

The path we have chosen for the present is full of hazards, as all paths are. The cost of freedom is always high, but Americans have always paid it. And one path we shall never choose, and that is the path of surrender, or submission.

Things do not happen. Things are made to happen.

Too often we... enjoy the comfort of opinion without the discomfort of thought.
