Famous quotes containing the word founder:
“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 breakst all thy girdles, and breakst forth a god.”
—Ben Jonson (15721637)
“The adjustment of qualities is so perfect between men and women, and each is so necessary to the other, that the idea of inferiority is absurd.”
—Jennie June Croly 18291901, U.S. founder of the womans club movement, journalist, author, editor. Demorests Illustrated Monthly and Mirror of Fashions, p. 204 (August 1866)
“The first man, who after enclosing a piece of ground, took it into his head to say, this is mine, and found people simple enough to believe him, was the real founder of civil society.”
—Jean-Jacques Rousseau (17121778)
