Great Quotes by John F. Kennedy

"It is time for a new generation of leadership, to cope with new problems and new opportunities. For there is a new world to be run."

--Television address, July 4, 1960

"The New Frontier of which I speak is not a set of promises- it is a set of challenges. It sums up not what I intend to offer the American people, but what I intend to ask of them."

--Speech accepting the Democratic presidential nomination, July 15, 1960

"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.

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

--Inaugural address, January 20, 1961


"The wave of the future is not the conquest of the world by a single dogmatic creed but the liberation of the diverse energies of free nations and free men."

--University of California at Berkeley Address, March 23, 1962


"In a time of turbulence and change, it is more true today than ever that knowledge is power."

--White House Dinner Reception, April 1962

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

--Remarks at Vanderbilt University, March 18, 1963

"Every American ought to have the right to be treated as he would like to be treated, as one would wish to be treated, as one would wish his children to be treated."

--Television address on civil rights, June 11, 1963

Great Quotes by Lyndon Baines Johnson


"All I have I would have given gladly not to be standing here today."

--First Address to Congress as President, November 27, 1963


"We have talked long enough in this country about equal rights. We have talked for a hundred years or more. It is time now to write the next chapter- and to write in the books of law."

--First State of the Union Address, January 8, 1964


"This nation, this generation, in this hour has man's first chance to build a Great Society, a place where the meaning of man's life matches the marvels of man's labor."

--Address accepting the presidential nomination, August, 1964

"In the land of great wealth, families must not live in hopeless poverty. In a land of healing miracles, neighbors must not suffer and die unattended. In a land of learning and scholars, young people must be taught to read or right."

"This administration today, here and now, declares unconditional war on poverty in America... For the war against poverty will not be won here in Washington. It must be won in the field, in every public office, from the courthouse to the White House. The program I will propose will emphasize this cooperative approach."

--State of the Union Address
