Famous quotes containing the words trusts and/or foundation:

    He that trusts to you,
    Where he should find you lions, finds you hares;
    Where foxes, geese.
    William Shakespeare (1564–1616)

    The poet needs a ground in popular tradition on which he may work, and which, again, may restrain his art within the due temperance. It holds him to the people, supplies a foundation for his edifice; and, in furnishing so much work done to his hand, leaves him at leisure, and in full strength for the audacities of his imagination.
    Ralph Waldo Emerson (1803–1882)
