Quotes

John F. Kennedy: Anyone who comes to the White House as a president desires the best for his country, but I think he does receive a stimulus from the knowledge of living in close proximity to the people who are legendary but who actually were alive and were in these rooms.

JACQUELINE KENNEDY - The Most Beautiful Thing the White House has Ever Seen
27 October 2004 | by See all my reviews

I just watched this program for the first time in my life. Mrs Kennedy was simply the epitome of charm, grace, elegance and intelligence. She was mesmerizing to watch and her knowledge of the history of the People's House was staggering. And to think that she was an occupant for less than three years! She was able to accomplish so much in that short time.

Its too bad that the First Ladies since then haven't had the connection with the country that she did. She didn't seem overwhelmed by the job, and she never used her position for foolish causes or embarrassing histrionics.

She was truly a work of art. And one of the White House's and America's greatest treasures.
