JFK Quotes To Inspire

Fifty years ago today, John F. Kennedy delivered his inaugural address and took his oath as President of the United States. The JFK assassination will go down in history as one of the greatest tragedies that ever occurred in this country. There are plenty of JFK quotes from his inaugural address that people still recite to this day.

To honor John F. Kennedy, here is a list of some of the most famous JFK quotes:

“A nation which has forgotten the quality of courage which in the past has been brought to public life is not as likely to insist upon or regard that quality in its chosen leaders today – and in fact we have forgotten.”

“A young man who does not have what it takes to perform military service is not likely to have what it takes to make a living. Today’s military rejects include tomorrow’s hard-core unemployed.”

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

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

“Communism has never come to power in a country that was not disrupted by war or corruption, or both.”

“Efforts and courage are not enough without purpose and direction.”

“For time and the world do not stand still. Change is the law of life. And those who look only to the past or the present are certain to miss the future.”

“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.”

“I look forward to a great future for America – a future in which our country will match its military strength with our moral restraint, its wealth with our wisdom, its power with our purpose.”

“Israel was not created in order to disappear – Israel will endure and flourish. It is the child of hope and the home of the brave. It can neither be broken by adversity nor demoralized by success. It carries the shield of democracy and it honors the sword of freedom.”
