USA Trivia Answer #46
“I pledge you that we will neither commit nor provoke aggression, that we shall neither flee nor invoke the threat of force, that we shall never negotiate out of fear, we shall never fear to negotiate.”
John F. Kennedy in his 1st speech before the UN General Assembly on September 26, 1961.
This is a paraphrase from a statement he made in his Inaugural Address: “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.”
