"My fellow citizens of the world, ask not what America will
do for you, but what together we can do for the freedom of man."

"To those nations, who would make themselves our
adversary, we offer not a pledge but a request: that both
sides begin anew the quest for peace."

"So let us begin anew, remembering on both sides that
civility is not a sign of weakness, and sincerity is always
subject to proof. Let us never negotiate out of fear, but let us never fear to negotiate."

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