Help! Who said this...

Who said something like: People see things that are and ask why whereas I see what could be and ask why not?

Oh, this is gonna bug me now! His name is on the tip of my tongue!

Some men see things as they are and say, “Why?” I dream of things that never were and say, “Why not?”

Frequently associated with Bobby (Robert F.) Kennedy, who used it in a speech, but was himself actually quoting George Bernard Shaw.

Aaaah! Thank you so much…
Very cool quote!

  • The Jinx-ster!

According to this, JFK used it in a speech several years before RFK. Personally, I’m most familiar with Ted Kennedy using it, quoting RFK at his funeral.

For the record, after looking up the exact wording of this quote for my last post, I have now had scenes fixed in my head for the past 10 minutes from the episode of South Park where the evil geneticist has bred a bizarre menagerie of animals with four asses.

If anybody has a link to still shots from the episode in question, it would hopefully help to relieve this attack.

(Well… Why not, indeed?)
