" I can think of no more effective agent in advancing our freedom to live as we choose than the insurance salesman. This man knows the economic pulse of the country as few men may, for he walks all streets of American life and he sits down and talks to youth and to the mature and to the aged.
He knows their wants, He helps them to help themselves in times of need. He builds, for he helps others to build. He insures the future.
He is respected.
And he is  a  friend."

--John F. Kennedy
