Famous quotes containing the word founder:

    Yet for all that, there is nothing in me of a founder of a religion—religions are affairs of the rabble; I find it necessary to wash my hands after I have come into contact with religious people.
    Friedrich Nietzsche (1844–1900)

    A restaurant is a fantasy—a kind of living fantasy in which diners are the most important members of the cast.
    Warner Leroy, U.S. restaurateur, founder of Maxwell’s Plum restaurant, New York City. New York Times (July 9, 1976)

    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)
