Famous quotes containing the word founders:

    The founders of a new colony, whatever Utopia of human virtue and happiness they might originally project, have invariably recognized it among their earliest practical necessities to allot a portion of the virgin soil as a cemetery, and another portion as the site of a prison.
    Nathaniel Hawthorne (1804–1864)

    It was no wonder that her sons stood tall and straight. She was a rich mine of life, like the founders of early races.
    Willa Cather (1873–1947)

    A spot whereon the founders lived and died
    Seemed once more dear than life; ancestral trees,
    Or gardens rich in memory glorified
    Marriages, alliances, and families,
    And every bride’s ambition satisfied.
    William Butler Yeats (1865–1939)
