And so, my fellow Americans, ask not what your country can do for you -- ask what you can do for your country.
Forgive your enemies, but never forget their names.
Change is the law of life. And those who look only to the past or present are certain to miss the future.



100年前的今天,美國前總統甘迺迪(1917-1963)出生。西元1963年,他是第一位拜訪西柏林的美國總統。該西柏林自1961年起,因柏林圍牆而與外界隔絕。拜訪期間,他說了這經典名句:「我是柏林人」,藉此聲援該城市的居民。今日像是「我是查理(Je suis Charlie)」的口號運動,則可追溯至這句話。
Heute vor 100 Jahren wurde der frühere amerikanische Präsident John F. Kennedy (1917-1963) geboren. 1963 besuchte er als erster amerikanischer Präsident West-Berlin, das seit 1961 von der Berliner Mauer eingeschlossen war. Dabei sagte er die berühmten Worte „Ich bin ein Berliner“, um sich mit den Bewohnern der Stadt solidarisch zu erklären. Heutige Slogans wie „Je suis Charlie“ gehen letztlich auf diesen Satz Kennedys zurück.

5 月5: Søren Kierkegaard, Karl Marx, The ultimate failure of Napoleon. Bye bye paper fivers; Virginia Woolf's great novel "To The Lighthouse"

Virginia Woolf's great novel "To The Lighthouse" was published #onthisday 5th May 1927. The book includes fictionalised semi-autobiographical reminiscences of her childhood trips to the family house in Cornwall and the characters Mr & Mrs Ramsay are probably partly based on her parents Leslie & Julia Stephen (née Duckworth). Leslie Stephen was President of The London Library for 12 years and Virginia Woolf became a life member 4 days after his death.
To the Lighthouse was one of Virginia Woolf's most successful novels (the proceeds enabling the Woolfs to buy their first car!). 3,000 copies were produced by her Hogarth Press for the first edition. This is one of them from May 1927, and we're very happy to have it!
