Quote for the Day: JFK and Marshall Lyautey


We must think and act not only for the moment but for our time. I am reminded of the story of the great French Marshall 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 Marshall replied, ‘In that case, there is no time to lose, plant it this afternoon.”

- President John F Kennedy

(1917-1963)
