From the Toronto Star

“We must face the fact that the United States is neither omnipotent nor omniscient…that we cannot right every wrong or reverse each adversity; and that therefore, there cannot be an American solution to every world problem.

-John F. Kennedy, University of Washington address, November 1961, seven months after the U.S.-led Bay of Pigs fiasco.
