It's totally true! Negociate personal reasonable principles and rules out of fear of losing something or someone equates to deny freedom of choice. On the other hand, reject every kind of negotiation is harmful, for leads to an deceptive outlook that one's opinion is always better than any other and shows one's fear of losing some of his requirements and accept another's. So, balance is indispensable in negotiations' affairs.

According to this site,

http://www.speaklikeapro.co.uk/JFK_inaugural.htm

this is an example of Chiasmus

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Chiasmus

I think that is the first and probably last time I will ever need to use that word.

thanks Pedro, never heard of that, didn't know there was a word for it. (although, being the Greeks, of course they had a word for it).

But JFK had obviously had that lesson in his family 'I am going to get my kids to rule America' training:

"Ask not what your country can do for you - ask what you can do for your country"!

I prefer:
Work to live, don't live to work!
alongside
Do what you love and love what you do.

they serve to solve any employment issues instantly!

I wish he was our President during Bush Jr. terms. The Iraq war would not be.

Good looking and charisma.
Inaugural Address Delivered 20 January 1961.

New Frontier, A challenge, Accelerated space program. Sounds good.
"We choose to go to the moon in this decade and do other things, not because they are easy, but because they are hard". JFK.

Negotiate; to arrange or settle by discussion or mutual agreement.

Should have negotiated a sedan instead of a convertible, not out of fear but common sense. New England civil rights reformist down in Tejas, turkey shoot. Can't argue the man's cajones though, war hero, reformist... philanderer.

That's it in a nutshell I guess. JFK had too much balls.

To coach, teach and/or negotiate from a position on high is, to me, the perfect time to do so.

People of power must learn the fine art of negotiating, as it is an art and not everyone with power can do so. Those that can, are hopefully, respected.

If, President Kennedy and his power team didn't negotiate, the Soviet Union would have used us for target pratice.


Fail Safe - A classic movie and worth seeking out to watch. Turner Classics Movies shows both.


Another movie, regarding the use of power is the, The Bedford Incident This is a different way a man in power negotiates.


Both of these movies were shown to us in our High School History class. For me they were eye-openers and life changing or affirming.

peace out, >^,,^<

Two problems with being afraid to negotiate in the legal sector.

The one some people get is that the lawyers then make all the money.

The one most don't is that sometimes you can reach solutions that are beneficial to both sides.

To kitten: What I mean by never negotiate from a position of power is: One should never use their power as leverage over their "opponent" as a means to gain their advantage. I totally agree with your response. I think to negotiate each must enter into the negotiation on equal footing. Otherwise we are talking about politics. Peace, love , dove, etc. :)
