Some of my favorite RFK recitations:
Some people see things as they are and ask, "Why?"
I dream of things that never were and ask, "Why not?"
-- George Bernard Shaw
The hottest places in hell are reserved for those who,
in times of great moral crisis, maintain their neutrality.
He who learns must suffer.
And even in our sleep,
pain, which cannot forget,
falls drop by drop
upon the heart
until, in our own despair,
against our will,
through the awful grace of god.
A favorite RFK anecdote:
During his 1968 presidential campaign, one of his aides asked something along the lines of: "Bobby, I don't understand. You were in favor of the death penalty when you were Attorney General. Now, you're against it. What's changed?"
RFK's response: "I read Camus."
