Famous quotes containing the word founder:

    Jane Addams, founder of Hull House, once asked, “How shall we respond to the dreams of youth?” It is a dazzling and elegant question, a question that demands an answer—a range of answers, really, spiraling outward in widening circles.
    William Ayers, U.S. author. To Teach: The Journey of a Teacher, ch. 7 (1993)

    In the midst of this chopping sea of civilized life, such are the clouds and storms and quicksands and thousand-and-one items to be allowed for, that a man has to live, if he would not founder and go to the bottom and not make his port at all, by dead reckoning, and he must be a great calculator indeed who succeeds.
    Henry David Thoreau (1817–1862)

    Hail, hail, plump paunch, O the founder of taste
    For fresh meats, or powdered, or pickle, or paste;
    Devourer of broiled, baked, roasted or sod,
    And emptier of cups, be they even or odd;
    All which have now made thee so wide i’ the waist
    As scarce with no pudding thou art to be laced;
    But eating and drinking until thou dost nod,
    Thou break’st all thy girdles, and break’st forth a god.
    Ben Jonson (1572–1637)
