Inspiration: President John F. Kennedy

Some quotes from the 35th President of the United States, and the only one to have won a Pulitzer Prize, John Fitzgerald Kennedy.
To me, these quotes hold particularly pertinent truth during these turbulent times. 
They also make me long for a hero.
"Too often we ... enjoy the comfort of opinion without the discomfort of thought."
John Fitzgerald Kennedy
"Conformity is the jailer of freedom and the enemy of growth."
John Fitzgerald Kennedy
"Tolerance implies no lack of commitment to one's own beliefs, rather it condemns the oppression or persecution of others."
John Fitzgerald Kennedy
