More from John Fitzgerald Kennedy

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, in order to assure the survival and the success of liberty.

Inaugural Address, Jan. 20, 1961

Only those who dare to fail greatly can ever achieve greatly.

Ask not what your country can do for you; ask what you can do for your country.

Words from his inaugural address, Jan. 20, 1961

A man may die, nations may rise and fall, but an idea lives on.

A city of southern efficiency and northern charm.
