President John F. Kennedy quote

The last words of JFK speech written for a speech on November 22, 1963:

... Neither the fanatics nor the faint-hearted are needed.  And our duty as a Party is not to  our Party alone, but to the nation, and, indeed, to all mankind.  Our duty is not merely the preservation of political power but the preservation of peace and freedom.
     So let us not be petty when our cause is so great.  Let us not quarrel amongst ourselves when our nation's future is at stake.
