It Is Time For This Country To Take A Leading Role

John Fitzgerald Kennedy, 1917-1963

“…the torch has been passed to a new generation of Americans…”

“Only an America which has fully educated its citizens is fully capable of tackling the complex problems…of the world in which we live.”

“We face…a moral crisis as a country and as a people. It is time to act…above all, in our daily lives.”

“All this will not be finished in the first 100 days…Nor even perhaps in our lifetime on this planet. But let us begin.”

“The conquest of space must and will go ahead.”

“We in this country, in this generation, are…the watchmen on the walls of world freedom.”
