The courage of life is often a less dramatic spectacle than the courage of a final moment; but it is no less a magnificent mixture of triumph and tragedy.

John F. Kennedy, Dyslexia Reader and Dyslexic Writer

A man does what he must – in spite of personal consequences, in spite of obstacles and dangers and pressures – and that is the basis of all morality.

When power leads man toward arrogance, poetry reminds him of his limitations. When power narrows the area of man’s concern, poetry reminds him of the richness and diversity of existence. When power corrupts, poetry cleanses.

A boy spends his time finding a girl to sleep with. A real man spends his time looking for the one worth waking up to.

John F. Kennedy, Dyslexia Reader and Dyslexic Writer

The most powerful single force in the world today is neither Communism nor Capitalism, neither the H-bomb nor the guided missile — it is man’s eternal desire to be free and independent.

John F. Kennedy, Dyslexia Reader and Dyslexic Writer

Once you say you’re going to settle for second, that’s what happens to you in life, I find.

Tolerance implies no lack of commitment to one’s own beliefs. Rather
it condemns the oppression or persecution of others.

Immigration policy should be
generous; it should be fair; it should
be flexible. With such a policy we
can turn to the world, and to our own
past, with clean hands and a clear
conscience.

John F. Kennedy, Dyslexia Reader and Dyslexic Writer

The one unchangeable certainty is that nothing is certain or unchangeable.

John F. Kennedy, Dyslexia Reader and Dyslexic Writer

A nation that is afraid to let its people judge the truth and falsehood in an open market is a nation that is afraid of its people.

John F. Kennedy, Dyslexia Reader and Dyslexic Writer

A nation reveals itself not only by the men it produces but also by the men it honors, the men it remembers.

John F. Kennedy, Dyslexia Reader and Dyslexic Writer

For, in the final analysis, our most common link is that we all inhabit this small planet. We all breathe the same air. We all cherish our children’s future. And we are all mortal.

John f Kennedy dyslexia

If art is to nourish the roots of our culture, society must set the artist free to follow his vision wherever it takes him.

John F. Kennedy, Dyslexia Reader and Dyslexic Writer

So, let us not be blind to our differences–but let us also direct attention to our common interests and to the means by which those differences can be resolved.

John F. Kennedy, Dyslexia Reader and Dyslexic Writer

And if we cannot end now our differences, at least we can help make the world safe for diversity. For, in the final analysis, our most basic common link is that we all inhabit this small planet. We all breathe the same air. We all cherish our children’s future. And we are all mortal.

Whether they be young in spirit, or young in age, the members of
the Democratic Party must never lose that youthful zest for new

JFK dyslexia

If more politicians knew poetry, and more poets knew politics, I am convinced the world would be a little better place in which to live.

John F. Kennedy, Dyslexia Reader and Dyslexic Writer

The interaction of disparate cultures, the vehemence of the ideals that led the immigrants here, the opportunity offered by a new life, all gave America a flavor and a character that make it as unmistakable and as remarkable to people today as it was to Alexis de Tocqueville in the early part of the nineteenth century.

John F. Kennedy, Dyslexia Reader and Dyslexic Writer

We must face the fact that the United States is neither omnipotent nor omniscient, that we cannot impose our will upon the other 94 percent of mankind, that we cannot right every wrong or reverse every adversity, and that therefore there cannot be an American solution to every world problem.

John F. Kennedy, Dyslexia Reader and Dyslexic Writer

Probably the greatest concentration of talent and genius in this house except for perhaps those times when Thomas Jefferson ate alone.

JFK dyslexia

To those peoples in the huts and villages of half the globe struggling to break the bonds of mass misery, we pledge our best efforts to help them help themselves, for whatever period is required – not because the Communists may be doing it, not because we seek their votes, but because it is right. If a free society cannot help the many who are poor, it cannot save the few who are rich.

John f Kennedy dyslexia

Our problems are manmade–therefore, they can be solved by man. And man can be as big as he wants. No problem of human destiny is beyond human beings. Man’s reason and spirit have often solved the seemingly unsolvable–and we believe they can do it again.

John F. Kennedy, Dyslexia Reader and Dyslexic Writer

Every inhabitant of this planet must contemplate the day when this planet may no longer be habitable .. The weapons of war must be abolished before they abolish us.

John F. Kennedy, Dyslexia Reader and Dyslexic Writer

Above all, we are coming to understand that the arts incarnate the creativity of a free people.

JFK dyslexia

When the creative impulse cannot flourish, when it cannot freely select its methods and objects, when it is deprived of spontaneity, then society severs the root of art.

John f Kennedy dyslexia

Just because we cannot see clearly te end of the road, that is no reason for not setting out on the essential journey.

John F. Kennedy, Dyslexia Reader and Dyslexic Writer

People often tell me I could be a great man. I’d rather be a good man.

John F. Kennedy, Dyslexia Reader and Dyslexic Writer

And is not peace, in the last analysis, basically a matter of human rights — the right to live out our lives without fear of devastation – the right to breathe air as nature provided it — the right of future generations to a healthy existence?

John F. Kennedy, Dyslexia Reader and Dyslexic Writer

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

JFK dyslexia

The ancient Greek definition of happiness was the full use of your powers along lines of excellence.

John F. Kennedy, Dyslexia Reader and Dyslexic Writer

The problems of the world cannot possibly be solved by skeptics or cynics whose horizons are limited by the obvious realities. We need men who can dream of things that never were.

John f Kennedy dyslexia

Time and the world do not stand still. Change is the law of life.

John F. Kennedy, Dyslexia Reader and Dyslexic Writer

The great French Marshall Lyautey once asked his gardener to plant a tree. The gardner objected that the tree was slow growing and wouldn’t reach maturity for 100 years. The Marshall replied, “In that case, there is no time to lose; plant it this afternoon!

John F. Kennedy, Dyslexia Reader and Dyslexic Writer

Great crisis produce great men and great deeds of courage.

JFK dyslexia

When power corrupts, poetry cleanses.

John f Kennedy dyslexia

And so it is to the printing press–to the recorder of man’s deeds, the keeper of his conscience, the courier of his news–that we look for strength and assistance, confident that with your help man will be what he was born to be: free and independent.

John F. Kennedy, Dyslexia Reader and Dyslexic Writer

I think this is the most extraordinary collection of talent, of human knowledge, that has ever been gathered together at the White House– with the possible exception of when Thomas Jefferson dined alone.

John F. Kennedy, Dyslexia Reader and Dyslexic Writer

When written in Chinese, the word “crisis” is composed of two characters. One represents danger and the other represents opportunity.

John F. Kennedy, Dyslexia Reader and Dyslexic Writer

From time to time our national history has been marred by forgetfulness of the Jeffersonian principle that restraint is at the heart of liberty.

John f Kennedy dyslexia

With a good conscience our only sure reward, with history the final judge of our deeds, let us go forth to lead the land we love, asking His blessing and His help, but knowing that here on earth God’s work must truly be our own.

JFK dyslexia

We should not let our fears hold us back from pursuing our hopes.

John F. Kennedy, Dyslexia Reader and Dyslexic Writer

Let us stand together with renewed confidence in our cause — united in our heritage of the past and our hopes for the future — and determined that this land we love shall lead all mankind into new frontiers of peace and abundance.

John F. Kennedy, Dyslexia Reader and Dyslexic Writer

No American is ever made better off by pulling a fellow American down, and all of us are made better off whenever any one of us is made better off.

John f Kennedy dyslexia

You can’t relate to a superhero, to a superman, but you can identify with a real man who in times of crisis draws forth some extraordinary quality from within himself and triumphs but only after a struggle.

JFK dyslexia

But wherever we are, we must all, in our daily lives, live up to the age-old faith that peace and freedom walk together. In too many of our cities today, the peace is not secure because freedom is incomplete.” (John F. Kennedy, June 10, 1963, American University speech)

John F. Kennedy, Dyslexia Reader and Dyslexic Writer

Every accomplishment starts with the decision to try.

John F. Kennedy, Dyslexia Reader and Dyslexic Writer

Things don’t just happen. They are made to happen.

John F. Kennedy, Dyslexia Reader and Dyslexic Writer

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.

JFK dyslexia

The life of the arts, far from being an interruption, a distraction, in the life of the nation, is close to the center of a nation’s purpose – and is a test to the quality of a nation’s civilization.

John f Kennedy dyslexia

War will exist until that distant day when the conscientious objector enjoys the same reputation and prestige that the warrior does today.

John F. Kennedy, Dyslexia Reader and Dyslexic Writer

We, in this country, in this generation, are – by destiny rather than by choice – the watchmen on the walls of world freedom.

John F. Kennedy, Dyslexia Reader and Dyslexic Writer

The greater our knowledge increases the greater our ignorance unfolds.

JFK dyslexia

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

John F. Kennedy, Dyslexia Reader and Dyslexic Writer

All of us do not have equal talent, but all of us should have an equal opportunity to develop those talents.

John f Kennedy dyslexia

World peace, like community peace, does not require that each man love his neighbor—it requires only that they live together in mutual tolerance.

John F. Kennedy, Dyslexia Reader and Dyslexic Writer

History teaches us that enmities between nations, as between individuals, do not last forever . . .

John F. Kennedy, Dyslexia Reader and Dyslexic Writer

The highest duty of the writer is to remain true to himself and let the chips fall where they may. In serving his vision of the truth the artist best serves his nation.

JFK dyslexia

We must use time as a tool, not as a crutch.

John f Kennedy dyslexia

The men who create power make an indispensable contribution to the nation’s greatness, but the men who question power make a contribution just as indispensable.

John F. Kennedy, Dyslexia Reader and Dyslexic Writer

Truth is a tyrant-the only tyrant to whom we can give our allegiance. The service of truth is a matter of heroism.

John F. Kennedy, Dyslexia Reader and Dyslexic Writer

For, in a democracy, every citizen, regardless of his interest in politics, ‘holds office’; every one of us is in a position of responsibility; and, in the final analysis, the kind of government we get depends upon how we fulfill those responsibilities.

JFK dyslexia

We, the people, are the boss, and we will get the kind of political leadership, be it good or bad, that we demand and deserve.

John F. Kennedy, Dyslexia Reader and Dyslexic Writer

We set sail on this new sea because there is new knowledge to be gained, and new rights to be won, and they must be won and used for the progress of all people.

John F. Kennedy, Dyslexia Reader and Dyslexic Writer

For space science, like nuclear science and technology, has no conscience of its own. Whether it will become a force for good or ill depends on man, and only if the United States occupies a position of preeminence can we help decide whether this new ocean will be a sea of peace or a new terrifying theater of war.

John f Kennedy dyslexia

If an American, because his skin is dark, cannot eat lunch in a restaurant open to the public, if he cannot send his children to the best public school available, if he cannot vote for the public officials who represent him, if, in short, he cannot enjoy the full and free life which all of us want, then who among us would be content to have the color of his skin changed and stand in his place?

John F. Kennedy, Dyslexia Reader and Dyslexic Writer

We are not afraid to entrust the American people with unpleasant facts, foreign ideas, alien philosophies, and competitive values. For a nation that is afraid to let its people judge the truth and falsehood in an open market is a nation that is afraid of its people.

JFK dyslexia

I believe in an America that is officially neither Catholic, Protestant nor Jewish – where no public official either requests or accepts instructions on public policy from the Pope, the National Council of Churches or any other ecclesiastical source – where no religious body seeks to impose its will directly or indirectly upon the general populace or the public acts of its officials – and where religious liberty is so indivisible that an act against one church is treated as an act against all.

John f Kennedy dyslexia

Unconditional war can no longer lead to unconditional victory.

John F. Kennedy, Dyslexia Reader and Dyslexic Writer

It can no longer serve to settle disputes. It can no longer be of concern to great powers alone. For a nuclear disaster, spread by winds and waters and fear, could well engulf the great and the small, the rich and the poor, the committed and the uncommitted alike. Mankind must put an end to war or war will put an end to mankind.

John F. Kennedy, Dyslexia Reader and Dyslexic Writer

It is when the politician loves neither the public good nor himself, or when his love for himself is limited and is satisfied by the trappings of office, that the public interest is badly served.

JFK dyslexia

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.

John f Kennedy dyslexia

So, let us not be blind to our differences- but let us also direct our attention to our common interests and to the means by which those differences can be resolved.

John F. Kennedy, Dyslexia Reader and Dyslexic Writer

The stories of past courage can define that ingredient- they can teach, they can offer hope, they can provide inspiration. But they cannot provide courage itself. For this each man must look into his own soul.

John F. Kennedy, Dyslexia Reader and Dyslexic Writer

The great enemy of the truth is very often not the lie — deliberate, contrived and dishonest — but the myth — persistent, persuasive, and unrealistic.

John F. Kennedy, Dyslexia Reader and Dyslexic Writer

There is inherited wealth in this country and also inherited poverty.

John f Kennedy dyslexia

If this nation is to be wise as well as strong, if we are to achieve our destiny, then we need more new ideas for more wise men reading more good books in more public libraries.

JFK dyslexia

These libraries should be open to all—except the censor. We must know all the facts and hear all the alternatives and listen to all the criticisms. Let us welcome controversial books and controversial authors. For the Bill of Rights is the guardian of our security as well as our liberty.

John F. Kennedy, Dyslexia Reader and Dyslexic Writer

When power leads man towards arrogance, poetry reminds him of his limitations. When power narrows the areas of man’s concern, poetry reminds him of the richness and diversity of his existence. When power corrupts, poetry cleanses, for art establishes the basic human truths which must serve as the touchstones of our judgement.

John F. Kennedy, Dyslexia Reader and Dyslexic Writer

The artists, however faithful to his personal vision of reality, becomes the last champion of the individual mind and sensibility against an intrusive society and an officious state.

John F. Kennedy, Dyslexia Reader and Dyslexic Writer

The great artist is thus a solitary figure. He has, as Frost said, “a lover’s quarrel with the world.” In pursuing his perceptions of reality he must often sail against the currents of his time. This is not a popular role.

John F. Kennedy, Dyslexia Reader and Dyslexic Writer

Another way of indicating the importance of immigration to America is to point out that every American who ever lived, with the exception of one group, was either an immigrant himself or a descendant of immigrants.

JFK dyslexia

If we cannot now end our differences, at least we can help make the world safe for diversity. —John F. Kennedy

John f Kennedy dyslexia

The Chinese use two brush strokes to write the word ‘crisis.’ One brush stroke stands for danger; the other for opportunity. In a crisis, be aware of the danger–but recognize the opportunity.

John F. Kennedy, Dyslexia Reader and Dyslexic Writer

If by a “Liberal” they mean someone who looks ahead and not behind, someone who welcomes new ideas without rigid reactions, someone who cares about the welfare of the people-their health, their housing, their schools, their jobs, their civil rights and their civil liberties-someone who believes we can break through the stalemate and suspicions that grip us in our policies abroad, if that is what they mean by a “Liberal”, then I’m proud to say I’m a “Liberal.”

John F. Kennedy, Dyslexia Reader and Dyslexic Writer

There is nothing in the record of the past two years when both Houses of Congress have been controlled by the Republican Party which can lead any person to believe that those promises will be fulfilled in the future. They follow the Hitler line – no matter how big the lie; repeat it often enough and the masses will regard it as truth.

John F. Kennedy, Dyslexia Reader and Dyslexic Writer

Peace is a daily, a weekly, a monthly process, gradually changing opinions, slowly eroding old barriers, quietly building new structures. And however undramatic the pursuit of peace, that pursuit must go on.

John f Kennedy dyslexia

All of us have in our veins the exact same percentage of salt in our blood that exists in the ocean, and, therefore, we have salt in our blood, in our sweat, in our tears. We are tied to the ocean. And when we go back to the sea – whether it is to sail or to watch it – we are going back from whence we came.

John F. Kennedy, Dyslexia Reader and Dyslexic Writer

I really don’t know why it is that all of us are so committed to the sea, except I think it’s because in addition to the fact that the sea changes, and the light changes, and ships change, it’s because we all came from the sea.

JFK dyslexia

And it is an interesting biological fact that all of us have in our veins the exact same percentage of salt in our blood that exists in the ocean, and, therefore, we have salt in our blood, in our sweat, in our tears. We are tied to the ocean. And when we go back to the sea – whether it is to sail or to watch it – we are going back from whence we came.

John f Kennedy dyslexia
