JFK on Winter

  • Reporter: "There is some impression and talk in the town and country that your Administration seems to have lost its momentum and to be slowing down and to be moving on the defensive. Could you comment on this feeling in the country?" President Kennedy: "I think we are making some progress so that if you ask me whether this was the 'Winter of Our Discontent', I would say no. If you would ask me whether we were doing quite as well this winter as we were doing in the fall, I would say no, too." | From a March 6, 1963 news conference

JFK On Myth

  • "The great enemy of the truth is very often not the lie -- deliberate, contrived, and dishonest -- but the myth -- persistent, persuasive, unrealistic." | John F. Kennedy, June 11, 1962
