The most famous sentence
The best known sentence of all U.S. presidential inaugural addresses was probably spoken by John F. Kennedy on January 20, 1961: “ask not what your country can do for you – ask what you can do for your country” – goes the frequently quoted sentence. If we look at only the numbers, Kennedy’s speech was not that remarkable. The text itself consists of 1364 words and the speech lasted 13 minutes and 59 seconds; this was the fourth shortest speech among inaugural addresses.
