We choose to go to the Moon - Wikipedia

History is a relentless master.  It has no present, only the past rushing into the future.”   —   John F. Kennedy

(Jack said a lot of wild things while on those pain meds.  Besides going to the moon, I think he wanted to add another ambitious endeavor to that Rice speech, but he spaced out a bit and said:  “and do the other things”.  Er . . . what other things, John?  But, he was on a roll, and he made it sound like those were the exact words he wanted to say.  He was selling it.  Sold, American!  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR

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

(You’d think that that would be the case.  But, here we are, 55 years later, still struggling to overcome our tribal differences.  Things have never been ideal, but the world has experienced a steady decline in tolerance since the events of 9/11 2001.  Fear and mistrust are driving us further apart, and I have this feeling of dread that it has all been by design.  We cannot give into it.  We need to fight against the tactics of fear, before they completely tear us apart.  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR

We must find time to stop and thank the people who make a difference in our lives.”   —   John F. Kennedy

(If we fail to do so, they may decide to leave us more more appreciative people.  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR

Efforts and courage are not enough without purpose and direction.”   —   John F. Kennedy

We are tied to the ocean.  And when we go back to the sea, whether it is to sail or to watch – we are going back from whence we came.”   —   John F. Kennedy

(Ahh!  Back to the primordial soup, so to speak!  Sounds like another nice Catholic boy who was comfortable with the theory of evolution.  I think a good many are.  It’s more the pentecostal and evangelic types that want to take things a little too literally.  Whatever floats their ark!  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR

Change is the law of life.  And those who look only to the past or present are certain to miss the future.”   —   John F. Kennedy

(You can’t miss the future.  The future slaps you in the face on a daily basis.  The only way you can miss the future is when you’re dead.  But, he got the change thing right.  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR

Let us not seek the Republican answer or the Democratic answer, but the right answer.”   —   John F. Kennedy

(I think this quote is directed towards today’s U.S. Congress.  Too much partisanship.  Too many concerned with making Barack Obama a one-term President.  Such a negative, counter-productive,  anti-American approach to politics.  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR

Once you say you’re going to settle for second, that’s what happens to you in life.”   —   John F. Kennedy

(They didn’t have the Wild Card back in Jack’s day.  There have been some instances where teams “settled” for second, to avoid playing certain other teams in the playoffs.  I realize the quote is more about general attitude, but life today sure is funny.  Be well and do . . . your best, friends.)   —   YUR

Cryptoquote Spoiler – 03/31/09

There are risks and costs to action.  But they are far less than the long-range risks of comfortable inaction.”   — John F. Kennedy
