When everything happens to you when you’re so young, you’re very lucky, but by the same token, you’re never going to have that same feeling again. The first time anything happens to you - your first love, your first success - the second one is never the same.

 ”Kennedy disliked photos that showed any public display of affection. ‘Once in New York City he was greeted at the airport by Jack, who kissed him on arrival, but we missed the photo because of a lot of maneuvering on Kennedy’s part. He was supposed to get off the front of the plane but instead he ran out the back where he met Jackie and kissed her quickly. We all made a mad dash and started screaming, ‘Kiss her again, Senator.’ ‘C’mon, Mrs. Kennedy. Hug him.’ ‘Senator, we need a kiss!’ JFK looked at us and smiled. ‘You’re sure an affectionate group of photographers.’” 

"Even after his inaugural address Kennedy did not kiss his wife, which is why she later told Stanley she loved the photograph he had taken of the them in a convertible returning from Blair House to the White House. The picture shows the President reaching over to tenderly brush hair out of her face. ‘It’s my favorite picture of the two of us,’ she said, ‘because it shows such great affection.’"

"Stanley recollected that as a candidate ‘Kennedy will not pose for any picture which he thinks smacks of corn. As his good friend Joe Alsop says, ‘Two things make him nervous—nuns and silly hats.’"

But they should, because it’s not just about the pleasures of conformity, and the importance of trends, it’s also a personal statement about the band itself.
