John Kennedy (美國第 35 任總統)


“I am reminded of the great French Marshal Lyautey, who once asked his gardener to plant a tree. The gardener objected that the tree was slow-growing and would not reach maturity for a hundred years. The Marshal replied, In that case, there is no time to lose, plant it this afternoon.”

— John F. Kennedy, 35th U.S. President

「我記得法國著名的元帥利奧泰,他曾要求他的園丁種一棵樹,園丁表示反對,說那樹長的很慢且要一百年才能長成,利奧泰回答,若是那樣,我們不能浪費時間,今天下午就植樹。」– 約翰‧甘迺迪 (美國第 35 任總統)

  • object (v.) 反對。maturity (n.) 成熟。
  • 約翰‧甘迺迪 (1917-1963) 在 43 歲當選總統,為美國史上第二年輕的總統,任內歷經古巴飛彈危機、柏林圍牆的建立、與蘇聯太空競賽等。甘迺迪總統在任內第 3 年遇刺身亡,至今仍是美國人民最敬仰的總統之一。
