We choose to go to the Moon. We choose to go to the Moon...We choose to go to the Moon in this decade and do the other things, not because they are easy, but because they are hard; because that goal will serve to organize and measure the best of our energies and skills, because that challenge is one that we are willing to accept, one we are unwilling to postpone, and one we intend to win, and the others, too
Humanity never had it easy. Life never had it easy. Challenge remains at every corner. Its only after facing those challenge faceforward die we accomplish great things. When the ancestors of humans came down the trees to explore the grasslands, it was a hard ting to do but a necessary one. When the cavemens had to leave their comfortable caves, it was not a hard choice, but it was a neccessary one. When European migrants chose to leave Europe for the promise of a land far away, it wasn't an easy decision. It was a hard one. Death and hardship follows those who venture out into the nothingness in hopes of a better future for their children.
