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)

    But the house of the prudent countryman will be, of course, a place of honest manners; and Demeter Thesmophoros is the guardian of married life, the deity of the discretion of wives. She is therefore the founder of civilised order.
    Walter Pater (1839–1894)

    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)
