Founders quotes by Alan E. Johnson
#1. During the nineteenth, twentieth, and early twenty-first centuries, certain politically active religious movements sought to have the United States declared - officially, if possible, but at least unofficially - a "Christian nation." This was an attempt to reverse the church-state separation principles and achievements of such great Founders as Thomas Jefferson and James Madison. Roger Williams, who was more religiously devout than just about anyone living in later centuries, opposed all attempts to call a particular nation "Christian," just as he opposed the terms "Christendom" and "Christian world." His arguments included a profound analysis of the importance of separation of church and state as well as a deep religious understanding of what Christianity is. #Quote by Alan E. Johnson
Founders quotes by Barack Obama
#2. I believe we can keep the promise of our founders, the idea that if you're willing to work hard, it doesn't matter who you are or where you come from or what you look like or who you love. It doesn't matter whether you're black or white or Hispanic or Asian or Native American or young or old or rich or poor, able, disabled, gay or straight, you can make it here in America if you're willing to try. #Quote by Barack Obama
Founders quotes by Jay Samit
#3. Every time a twenty-something CEO turns down a multibillion-dollar offer for a company that has little or no revenues, it hits a raw nerve in me. Unlike most professionals, I am not shocked by the seemingly bizarre behavior of those founders who pursue their vision beyond all rational thought or monetary reward. #Quote by Jay Samit
Founders quotes by Anonymous
#4. He sought a way to preserve the past. John Hershel was one of the founders of a new form of time travel ... a means to capture light and memories. He actually coined a word for it ... photography. When you think about it, photography is a form of time travel. This man is staring at us from across the centuries, a ghost preserved by light. #Quote by Anonymous
Founders quotes by R. Buckminster Fuller
#5. The pyramids, attached with age, have forgotten the names of their founders. #Quote by R. Buckminster Fuller
Founders quotes by Jane Mayer
#6. The Kochs were unusually single-minded, but they were not alone. They were among a small, rarefied group of hugely wealthy, archconservative families that for decades poured money, often with little public disclosure, into influencing how Americans thought and voted. Their efforts began in earnest in the second half of the twentieth century. In addition to the Kochs, this group included Richard Mellon Scaife, an heir to the Mellon banking and Gulf Oil fortunes; Harry and Lynde Bradley, midwesterners enriched by defense contracts; John M. Olin, a chemical and munitions company titan; the Coors brewing family of Colorado; and the DeVos family if Michigan, founders of the Amway marketing empire. Each was different, but together they formed a new generation of philanthropist, bent on using billions if dollars from their private foundations to alter the direction of American politics. #Quote by Jane Mayer
Founders quotes by Michiko Kakutani
#7. Trump's ridiculousness, his narcissistic ability to make everything about himself, the outrageousness of his lies, and the profundity of his ignorance can easily distract attention from the more lasting implications of his story: how easily Republicans in Congress enabled him, undermining the whole concept of checks and balances set in place by the founders; how a third of the country passively accepted his assaults on the Constitution; how easily Russian disinformation took root in a culture where the teaching of history and civics had seriously atrophied. #Quote by Michiko Kakutani
Founders quotes by Christopher Hitchens
#8. One must state it plainly. Religion comes from the period of human prehistory where nobody - not even the mighty Democritus who concluded that all matter was made from atoms - had the smallest idea what was going on. It comes from the bawling and fearful infancy of our species, and is a babyish attempt to meet our inescapable demand for knowledge (as well as for comfort, reassurance and other infantile needs). Today the least educated of my children knows much more about the natural order than any of the founders of religion, and one would like to think - though the connection is not a fully demonstrable one - that this is why they seem so uninterested in sending fellow humans to hell. #Quote by Christopher Hitchens
Founders quotes by David Barton
#9. The Founders intended only to prevent the establishment of a single national denomination, not to restrain public religious expressions. #Quote by David Barton
Founders quotes by Chris Prentiss
#10. In 1935, when there were no other programs, the founders of AA, Bill Wilson and Dr. Robert Smith, stepped up to the plate and took action to help a crippled population. All credit for the establishment of their wonderful, life-saving group goes to them and to those who came after them who have continued the tradition. However, there are not among the estimated two or three million who attend twelve-step meetings. #Quote by Chris Prentiss
Founders quotes by Richard Branson
#11. However small a company, its founders should try to expand people's opportunities and choices. #Quote by Richard Branson
Founders quotes by William Bennett
#12. From Samuel Adams to Patrick Henry to Benjamin Franklin to Alexander Hamilton, all the Founders intended religion to provide a moral anchor for our liberty in democracy. #Quote by William Bennett
Founders quotes by Andrew Johnson
#13. It is our sacred duty to transmit unimpaired to our posterity the blessings of liberty which were bequeathed to us by the founders of the Republic. #Quote by Andrew Johnson
Founders quotes by L. Neil Smith
#14. Most of us agree that the United Nations is the vanguard of a foreign invasion and must be driven from our shores. Liberalism Progressivism all forms of left wing collectivism , are equally alien to the Founders ' America and must be extirpated, root and branch, laughter and derision being the most effective weapons. Look at the way they have reduced Hillary Clinton to an insignificant greasy spot on the pages of history, turned Albert Gore into an object of merriment, and are accomplishing the same for Barry and Micky Obama. #Quote by L. Neil Smith
Founders quotes by Christopher Hitchens
#15. Considering these limitations, it is quite astonishing how irreligious the Founders actually were. You might not easily guess, for example, who was the author of the following words: Oh! Lord! Do you think that a Protestant Popedom is annihilated in America? Do you recollect, or have you ever attended to the ecclesiastical Strifes in Maryland Pensilvania [sic], New York, and every part of New England? What a mercy it is that these People cannot whip and crop, and pillory and roast, as yet in the U.S.! If they could they would ... . There is a germ of religion in human nature so strong that whenever an order of men can persuade the people by flattery or terror that they have salvation at their disposal, there can be no end to fraud, violence, or usurpation. That was John Adams, in relatively mild form. #Quote by Christopher Hitchens
Founders quotes by Robert Pozen
#16. The classic problem as an entrepreneur is that they have a hard time delegating. But that's really crazy. Recruiting other executives is critical, so is dealing with customers and dealing with regulators. Those are functions that only the top founders can do. #Quote by Robert Pozen
Founders quotes by Walter Isaacson
#17. The Kleinrock controversy is interesting because it shows that most of the Internet's creators preferred - to use the metaphor of the Internet itself - a system of fully distributed credit. They instinctively isolated and routed around any node that tried to claim more significance than the others. The Internet was born of an ethos of creative collaboration and distributed decision making, and its founders liked to protect that heritage. It became ingrained in their personalities - and in the DNA of the Internet itself. #Quote by Walter Isaacson
Founders quotes by Bill Clinton
#18. At the end of the Constitutional Convention, a citizen asked Benjamin Franklin what kind of government our founders had given us. He replied, "A republic, if you can keep it." That's a job no president can do alone. It's up to all of us to keep it. And to make the most of it. #Quote by Bill Clinton
Founders quotes by Dan Lyons
#19. A lot of these new start-up founders are somewhat unsavory people. The old tech industry was run by engineers and MBAs; the new tech industry is populated by young, amoral hustlers, the kind of young guys (and they are almost all guys) who watched The Social Network and its depiction of Mark Zuckerberg as a lying, thieving, backstabbing prick - and left the theater wanting to be just like that guy. #Quote by Dan Lyons
Founders quotes by Jean Bethke Elshtain
#20. Nonetheless, by the time we arrive at the eighteenth century and the time of the founders, marriage and the family came to look very much as Aristotle had pictured it. In the previous centuries, Lutheran reforms had lodged marriage into the civil structure of society and made it more a concern of civil law,11 but, joined by Calvin, Protestantism retained parental control over the right of children to marry. John Locke, however, saw marriage as contracted political society, and thus his image of the family as a commonwealth made up of combined individuals parallel his image of the formation of the larger political commonwealth as well.12 Furthermore, Locke declares that parents are, "by the law of nature, under an obligation to preserve, nourish and educate" their children.13 Since government is instituted to enforce the laws of nature, Locke states that government should make laws that enforce "the security of the marriage bed.'14 What #Quote by Jean Bethke Elshtain
Founders quotes by Scott Wallace
#21. For all the illusions of freedom our society promotes, rarely do we have the chance to step outside it long enough to gain some distance. Beyond the fatuous talk about liberty and the price our founders paid for it, I wondered: How free were we if we'd become so dependent on the comforts produced by industry that we couldn't do without them? #Quote by Scott Wallace
Founders quotes by Ezra Taft Benson
#22. The founders had a strong distrust for centralized power in a federal government. So they created a government with checks and balances. This was to prevent any branch of the government from becoming too powerful. #Quote by Ezra Taft Benson
Founders quotes by James Comey
#23. I believe that Americans should be deeply skeptical of government power. You cannot trust people in power. The founders knew that. That's why they divided power among three branches, to set interest against interest. #Quote by James Comey
Founders quotes by Sam Yagan
#24. Something like a quarter of the founders that have gone through Excelerate and Techstars are women. I'm incredibly proud of that. #Quote by Sam Yagan
Founders quotes by Henry Miller
#25. Now when he closes his eyes he can really look at himself. He no longer sees a mask. He sees without seeing, to be exact. Vision without sight, a fluid grasp of intangibles: the merging of sight and sound: the heart of the web. Here stream the different personalities which evade the crude contact of the senses; here the overtones of recognition discreetly lap against one another in bright, vibrant harmonies. There is no language employed, no outlines delineated. When a ship founders, it settles slowly; the spars, the masts, the rigging float away. On the ocean floor of death the bleeding hull bedecks itself with jewels; remorselessly the anatomic life begins. What was ship becomes the nameless indestructible. Like ships, men founder time and again. Only memory saves them from complete dispersion. Poets drop their stitches in the loom, straws for drowning men to grasp as they sink into extinction. Ghosts climb back on watery stairs, make imaginary ascents, vertiginous drops, memorize numbers, dates, events, in passing from gas to liquid and back again. There is no brain capable of registering the changing changes. Nothing happens in the brain, except the gradual rust and detrition of the cells. But in the minds, worlds unclassified, undenominated, unassimilated, form, break, unite, dissolve and harmonize ceaselessly. In the mind-world ideas are the indestructible elements which form the jewelled constellations of the interior life. We move within their orbits, freely if we fol #Quote by Henry Miller
Founders quotes by Edward Felten
#26. The next generation of innovators, who need neutrality the most, are not at the bargaining table. They're hard at work in their labs or classrooms, dreaming of the next big thing, and hoping that the Internet is as open to them as it was to the founders of Google. #Quote by Edward Felten
Founders quotes by Lewis Carroll
#27. Twenty thousand thieves landed at Hastings. These founders of the House of Lords were greedy and ferocious dragoons, sons of greedy and ferocious pirates ... Such, however, is the illusion of antiquity and wealth, that decent and dignified men now existing, boast their descent from these filthy thieves, who showed a far juster conviction of their own merits, by assuming for their types the swine, goat, jackal, leopard, wolf, and snake, which they severally resembled. #Quote by Lewis Carroll
Founders quotes by Willa Cather
#28. But she still had that something which fires the imagination, could still stop one's breath for a moment by a look or gesture that somehow revealed the meaning in common things. She had only to stand in the orchard, to put her hand on a little crab tree and look up at the apples, to make you feel the goodness of planting and tending and harvesting at last. All the strong things of her heart came out in her body, that had been so tireless in serving generous emotions. It was no wonder that her sons stood tall and straight. She was a rich mine of life, like the founders of early races. #Quote by Willa Cather
Founders quotes by Salvatore Ferragamo
#29. There is no limit to beauty, no saturation point in design, no end to the material ... #Quote by Salvatore Ferragamo
Founders quotes by George Osborne
#30. The Internet has made us richer, freer, connected and informed in ways its founders could not have dreamt of. It has also become a vector of attack, espionage, crime and harm. #Quote by George Osborne
Founders quotes by Tucker Viemeister
#31. A man-made thing that produces pleasure (and criticism) by somehow taping into the order of the universe is beautiful. Making beautiful things makes our lives worthwhile. My teacher, and one of the founders of the Pratt industrial design program, Rowena Reed Kostellow, said, "Pure, unadulterated beauty should be the goal of civilization." From a pragmatic point of view, for something to be beautiful, it has to work. In order to make this idea clearer I have combined the ideas of beauty and function into one word: Beautility. #Quote by Tucker Viemeister
Founders quotes by John F. Kennedy
#32. Without debate, without criticism no administration and no country can succeed and no republic can survive. #Quote by John F. Kennedy
Founders quotes by Alfred William Howitt
#33. Unlike all other founders of a religious faith, Christ had no selfishness, no desire of dominance; and His system, unlike all other systems of worship, was bloodless, boundlessly beneficent, and
most marvelous of all
went to break all bonds of body and soul, and to cast down every temporal and every spiritual tyranny. #Quote by Alfred William Howitt
Founders quotes by Mike Huckabee
#34. I'm still one who says that we can get rid of the Internal Revenue Service if we would pass the fair tax, which is a tax on consumption rather than a tax on people's income, and move power back where the founders believed it should have been all along. #Quote by Mike Huckabee
Founders quotes by Ron Conway
#35. As a founder you have to build a team some day, so why not start the day you found the company? #Quote by Ron Conway
Founders quotes by Radley Balko
#36. Police officers today are a protected class, one no politician wants to oppose. Law enforcement interests may occasionally come up short on budgetary issues, but legislatures rarely if ever pass new laws to hold police more accountable, to restrict their powers, or to make them more transparent. In short, police today embody all of the threats the Founders feared were posed by standing armies, plus a few additional ones they couldn't have anticipated. #Quote by Radley Balko
Founders quotes by Brad Stone
#37. Life inside successful Web startups - especially the really successful ones - can be nasty, brutish, and short. As companies grow exponentially, egos clash, investors jockey for control, and business complexities rapidly exceed the managerial abilities of the founders. #Quote by Brad Stone
Founders quotes by Sam Altman
#38. A successful startup takes a very long time - certainly much longer than most founders think at the outset. You cannot treat it as an all-nighter. You have to eat well, sleep well, and exercise. You have to spend time with your family and friends. You also need to work in an area you're actually passionate about - nothing else will sustain you for ten years. #Quote by Sam Altman
Founders quotes by Al Gore
#39. The Founders of the U.S. gave the senators a term of office three times longer than that of a representative precisely to encourage a reflective frame of mind, a distance from the passions of the voters, and a capacity for deliberative consideration. #Quote by Al Gore
Founders quotes by Scott Weiss
#40. I see many founders waste too much time trying to work their networks and/or ultimately settle for mediocre but available candidates. You will definitely have to interview hard for cultural fit, but the best talent isn't cheap. #Quote by Scott Weiss
Founders quotes by Louis Riel
#41. I know that through the grace of God, I am the founder of Manitoba. #Quote by Louis Riel
Founders quotes by John Jay Hooker
#42. The rich and the well-born, according to the Federalist Papers, was greatly feared by the founders. #Quote by John Jay Hooker
Founders quotes by W. Somerset Maugham
#43. I think I can tell you. I've always felt that there was something pathetic in the founders of religion who made it a condition of salvation that you should believe in them. It's as though they needed your faith to have faith in themselves. #Quote by W. Somerset Maugham
Founders quotes by Karel Glastra Van Loon
#44. The founders of modern Burma believed that they could guarantee prosperity and happiness by correctly choosing the moment for the rebirth of our country. They consulted astrologists and fortune-tellers, men of impeccable behaviour and uncontested wisdom, who were devout Buddhists to boot. Acting on the advice of these holy arithmeticians, they declared independence on the fourth of January in the year 1948, at twenty past four in the morning. Every year since then, we have commemorated that happy occasion on that day at that same impossible hour - in the full awareness that independence has caused more misfortune than all of the oppression and exploitation of the entire colonial period put together. #Quote by Karel Glastra Van Loon
Founders quotes by Bertrand Russell
#45. What most distinguishes Confucius from other founders is that he inculcated a strict code of ethics, which has been respected ever since, but associated with very little religious dogma, which gave place to complete theological scepticism in the countless generations of Chinese literati who revered his memory and administered the Empire. #Quote by Bertrand Russell
Founders quotes by Alexander Osterwalder
#46. Founders go wrong when they start to believe their business plan will materialize as written. I advise entrepreneurs to burn their business plan - it's simply too dangerous to the health of your business. #Quote by Alexander Osterwalder
Founders quotes by Hugo Black
#47. The Establishment Clause ... stands as an expression of principle on the part of the Founders ... that religion is too personal, too sacred, too holy, to permit its 'unhallowed perversion' by a civil magistrate. #Quote by Hugo Black
Founders quotes by Sam Altman
#48. In YC experience, 2 or 3 co-founders seems to be about perfect. #Quote by Sam Altman
Founders quotes by Mike Huckabee
#49. We had so many different presidents, including Jefferson, Jackson, Lincoln - there were other founders like Hamilton, Adams - who made it very clear that the courts can't make a law. The Constitution is expressly clear that that's a power reserved to Congress. #Quote by Mike Huckabee
Founders quotes by Michael Novak
#50. Our Founders always wondered about how long it would last. The price of liberty is everlasting vigilance. You've got to be on your guard every minute or you will lose it. #Quote by Michael Novak
Founders quotes by Sebastian Gorka
#51. Our Constitution's separation of church and state never meant that religion could have nothing to do with the governing of our nation. The Founders simply intended that the United States would not have an established state religion and that no one could be sanctioned by the state for being of the wrong faith. Separation of church and state does not mean, as many people inside government believe today, that religion can never be discussed when investigating a threat or interrogating a suspect. And it definitely does not mean that a subject under surveillance as a threat to American lives cannot be recorded or otherwise monitored when he steps into a mosque. If someone is suspected of being a terrorist, it matters not whether he steps into a mosque, a church, or a temple; he is still a threat and should be treated as such. #Quote by Sebastian Gorka
Founders quotes by Horace Mann
#52. Under the Providence of God, our means of education are the grand machinery by which the 'raw material' of human nature can be worked up into inventors and discoverers, into skilled artisans and scientific farmers, into scholars and jurists, into the founders of benevolent institutions, and the great expounders of ethical and theological science. #Quote by Horace Mann
Founders quotes by Guy Kawasaki
#53. Great companies start because the founders want to change the world ... not make a fast buck. #Quote by Guy Kawasaki
Founders quotes by Os Guinness
#54. As I understand the American Founders, the most brilliant and daring idea they had was that it's possible to create a free society that could stay free forever. #Quote by Os Guinness
Founders quotes by Steven Waldman
#55. Freedom of conscience means not only the freedom to believe but also the freedom to change - not only the right to practice one faith but also the right to a spiritual journey. The Founders didn't just champion religious freedom - they used it. Franklin, Washington, Jefferson, Adams, and Madison never stopped examining - passionately, combatively, wisely - life's deepest questions. Each journey was distinctive, but they ended up in similar places, still deeply spiritual but with an ever-shortening list of required religious creeds. The older they got, the simpler their faith became. #Quote by Steven Waldman
Founders quotes by Sam Altman
#56. Many founders hire just because it seems like a cool thing to do, and people always ask how many employees you have. #Quote by Sam Altman
Founders quotes by Jessica Livingston
#57. Starting a startup is a process of trial and error. What guided the founders through this process was their empathy for the users. They never lost sight of making things that people would want. #Quote by Jessica Livingston
Founders quotes by William O'Neil
#58. My philosophy is that all stocks are bad. There are no good stocks unless they go up in price. If they go down instead, you have to cut your losses fast Letting losses run is the most serious mistake made by most investors. #Quote by William O'Neil
Founders quotes by Daniel Webster
#59. Let us never forget that the cultivation of the earth is the most important labor of man. When tillage begins, other arts follow. The farmers, therefore, are the founders of civilization. #Quote by Daniel Webster
Founders quotes by Ronald Reagan
#60. The Federalist Society is changing the culture of our nation's law schools. You are returning the values and concepts of law as our founders understood them to scholarly dialogue, and through that dialogue, to our legal institutions. #Quote by Ronald Reagan
Founders quotes by Ron Paul
#61. Under the United States Constitution, the federal government has no authority to hold states "accountable" for their education performance ... In the free society envisioned by the founders, schools are held accountable to parents, not federal bureaucrats. #Quote by Ron Paul
Founders quotes by Guy Kawasaki
#62. Should two founders split the company right down the middle? Answer you're looking for: No, you should allocate 25 percent to future employees and 35 percent to the first two rounds of investments. That leaves 40 percent for the founders to split among themselves. #Quote by Guy Kawasaki
Founders quotes by Sam Altman
#63. There is a long history of founders returning to companies and doing great things. Founders are able to set the vision for their companies with an authority no one else can. #Quote by Sam Altman
Founders quotes by Charles Colson
#64. Today's widespread relegation of religion to merely something people do only in the privacy of their homes or churches would have been unimaginable to the founders of the republic - even those who personally repudiated orthodox Christian faith. #Quote by Charles Colson
Founders quotes by G.K. Chesterton
#65. Our civilization has decided, and very justly decided, that determining the guilt or innocence of men is a thing too important to be trusted to trained men. It wishes for light upon that awful matter, it asks men who know no more law than I know, but who can feel the thing that I felt in that jury box. When it wants a library catalogued, or the solar system discovered, or any trifle of that kind, it uses up its specialists. But when it wishes anything done which is really serious, it collects twelve of the ordinary men standing round. The same thing was done, if I remember right, by the Founder of Christianity. #Quote by G.K. Chesterton
Founders quotes by Kathryn Finney
#66. It's not hard for a city like New York to create a $1.25 million fund. It's not hard for foundations to create funds that invest in diverse founders. #Quote by Kathryn Finney
Founders quotes by Arthur Rock
#67. I was one of the founders in, in that, the three of us all had the, had the founder's stock. #Quote by Arthur Rock
Founders quotes by Tiffany Madison
#68. The Second Amendment is timeless for our Founders grasped that self-defense is three-fold: every free individual must protect themselves against the evil will of the man, the mob and the state. #Quote by Tiffany Madison
Founders quotes by Ben Carson
#69. It is unlikely that it was the intention of the founders to give any public official the ability to thwart the will of the people. Although they may have been concerned about mob rule and wanted a judicial system that would prevent that, they also recognized that in many other countries it was assumed that the ruling class always knew better than the people, and they wanted no part of such a system. #Quote by Ben Carson
Founders quotes by Victoria Moran
#70. There are some things that money can't buy: peace of mind, for starters, and lean muscle mass. Neither the Queen of England nor the founder of Microsoft can put in an order for either one. #Quote by Victoria Moran
Founders quotes by Sam Altman
#71. The thing that kills startups at some level, is the founders giving up. #Quote by Sam Altman
Founders quotes by Daniel Quinn
#72. No, the founders of our culture didn't just fall into a lifestyle of total dependence on agriculture, they had to whip themselves into it, and the whip they used was this meme: Growing all your own food is the best way to live. Nothing less could imaginably have done this amazing trick. #Quote by Daniel Quinn
Founders quotes by Walter Cronkite
#73. For nearly five decades the World Federalists have worked to promote a strengthened UN and more effective institutions of global governance. I offer my personal endorsement. Now a great opportunity has opened for the realization of the dreams of the UN's founders. #Quote by Walter Cronkite
Founders quotes by William Butler Yeats
#74. 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. #Quote by William Butler Yeats
Founders quotes by Alan Keyes
#75. We may well soon be subjected to anything that judges want to enforce ... The result will be an enforced inability of the states to pass laws that reflect the principled judgment of their own citizens ... And as our Founders taught us so well, ... [that] will be the end of liberty and the establishment of tyranny in America. #Quote by Alan Keyes
Founders quotes by Barack Obama
#76. The goal of this office will not be to favor one religious group over another - or even religious groups over secular groups. It will simply be to work on behalf of those organizations that want to work on behalf of our communities, and to do so without blurring the line that our founders wisely drew between church and state. #Quote by Barack Obama
Founders quotes by James Russell Lowell
#77. Faith in God, faith in man, faith in work: this is the short formula in which we may sum up the teachings of the founders of New England,
a creed ample enough for this life and the next. #Quote by James Russell Lowell
Founders quotes by Ross Perot
#78. Keep in mind our Constitution predates the Industrial Revolution. Our founders did not know about electricity, the train, telephones, radio, television, automobiles, airplanes, rockets, nuclear weapons, satellites, or space exploration. There's a lot they didn't know about. It would be interesting to see what kind of document they'd draft today. Just keeping it frozen in time won't hack it. #Quote by Ross Perot
Founders quotes by Douglas Brinkley
#79. Most computer users by the end of the century made regular use of the Internet, a vast web of worldwide computer networks born in the late 1960s in the work done by the U.S. Department of Defense's Advanced Research Projects Agency (DARPA) and universities it commissioned. Its founders had needed to share information with researchers working on government contracts at various universities. Once computer users at these well-funded institutions realized the possibilities of an electronic network connecting them with colleagues worldwide, word of the wonder spread and the Internet blossomed. By the late 1980s, anyone with a computer equipped with a modem hooked up to a regular telephone line could send an "E-mail" message or any other electronic document to anyone similarly equipped anywhere in the world - instantaneously. By 1994, the number of people connected to the World Wide Web of computer networks had swelled to an estimated 15 million. #Quote by Douglas Brinkley
Founders quotes by Friedrich Max Muller
#80. The true history of the world must always be the history of the few; and as we measure the Himalaya by the height of Mount Everest, we must take the true measure of India from the poets of the Veda, the sages of the Upanishads, the founders of the Vedanta and Sankhya philosophies, and the authors of the oldest law-books, and not from the millions who are born and die in their villages, and who have never for one moment been roused out of their drowsy dream of life. #Quote by Friedrich Max Muller
Founders quotes by Robert Alley
#81. We are the better because of a constitution that goes beyond the spirit of the men who wrote it. Most often, in contrast, Christianity is restrictive, overly concerned about the "original intent" of its authors. But the Constitution contains the germ of an idea that allows expansion, going beyond what its founders thought. That is humanism. Humanism affirms, "There is something good even holy in the human spirit." However we define humanism, whatever we say about it, the important thing is that it makes us better. #Quote by Robert Alley
Founders quotes by Geoffrey Gorer
#82. The founders of the great world religions, Gautama Buddha, Jesus, Lao-Tzu, Mohammed, all seem to have striven for a worldwide brotherhood of man; but none of them could develop institutions which would include the enemy, the unbeliever. #Quote by Geoffrey Gorer
Founders quotes by Garrett Camp
#83. If the founders of a start-up are considering selling it, I'd advise them to consider the synergies. Could the buyer give you access to something you don't have now, like a certain technology? Would it make your life easier? Are you looking for a change? Things will change, so you have to be ready for that. #Quote by Garrett Camp
Founders quotes by Michael Moritz
#84. There's nothing more invigorating than being deeply involved with a small company and a young team of founders out to do something incredibly special. #Quote by Michael Moritz
Founders quotes by Lewis Mumford
#85. When cities were first founded, an old Egyptian scribe tells us, the mission of the founder was to 'put gods in their shrines.' The task of the coming city is not essentially different: its mission is to put the highest concerns of man at the center of all his activities. #Quote by Lewis Mumford
Founders quotes by Ursula Burns
#86. Unlike people, companies outlive their founders and their leaders. #Quote by Ursula Burns
Founders quotes by David Horowitz
#87. The Founders were not democrats and socialists ... , but conservatives who had a healthy distrust of political passions and who devised a complex system designed to frustrate the schemes of social redeemers and others convinced of their own invincible virtue. #Quote by David Horowitz
Founders quotes by Jim  Marggraff
#88. Our children didn't become founders by chance or just because they had us as their parents. It happened because of the intentional choices we made each and every day while raising them as well as the choices they made through the perspective they developed around the achievability of dreams. These are choices that parents and children can make if they simply know how. #Quote by Jim Marggraff
Founders quotes by William Rehnquist
#89. What many of those who oppose the use of juries in civil trials seem to ignore is that the founders of our Nation considered the right of trial by jury in civil cases an important bulwark against tyranny and corruption, a safeguard too precious to be left to the whim of the sovereign, or, it might be added, to that of the judiciary. #Quote by William Rehnquist
Founders quotes by Martin Zwilling
#90. Team members need to feel trusted and valued, and micromanaging communicates the opposite. Founders who are prone to manage every detail of their businesses will ultimately kill themselves as well as lose the support of team members. Learn to delegate key tasks and give credit. #Quote by Martin Zwilling
Founders quotes by Akhil Reed Amar
#91. In the near term, such compromises made possible a continental union of North and South that provided bountiful benefits to freeborn Americans. But in the long run, the Founders' failure to put slavery on a path of ultimate extinction would lead to massive military conflict on American soil - the very sort of conflict whose avoidance was, as we shall now see, literally the primary purpose of the Constitution of 1788. #Quote by Akhil Reed Amar
Founders quotes by Jean-Jacques Rousseau
#92. The first man who, having enclosed a piece of ground, bethought himself of saying 'this is mine', and found people simple enough to believe him, was the real founder of civil society. #Quote by Jean-Jacques Rousseau
Founders quotes by Sargent Shriver
#93. I believe strongly in the Constitutional principle of separating church and state. Our founders were right in fearing that religious freedom would be threatened in the long run by a departure from governmental neutrality in spiritual matters. #Quote by Sargent Shriver
Founders quotes by Jim Mullen
#94. Of all the things that your company owns, brands are far and away the most important and the toughest. Founders die. Factories burn down. Machinery wears out. Inventories get depleted. Technology becomes obsolete. Brand loyalty is the only sound foundation on which business leaders can build enduring, profitable growth. #Quote by Jim Mullen
Founders quotes by Joseph J. Ellis
#95. Permitting the continuance and expansion of slavery as the price to pay for nationhood. This decision meant that tragedy was also built into the American founding, and the only question we can ask is whether it was a Greek tragedy, meaning inevitable and unavoidable, or a Shakespearean tragedy, meaning that it could have gone the other way, and the failure was a function of the racial prejudices the founders harbored in their heads and hearts.10 #Quote by Joseph J. Ellis
Founders quotes by Swami Dhyan Giten
#96. A friend of mine commented yesterday that she has experienced similar insights that I talked about that all enlightened Masters and founders of religion are actually talking about the same ocean, the same invisible life source, the same God.
She also said that she worked in a Christan environment at the time that she received these insights, and when she tried to share these insights with the Christians she was accused of being "impure" and of being associated with the "Devil".
Christians hold on to the idea that Jesus was the only son of God, without realizing that we are all son's and daughter's of God. By holding on to the idea that Jesus is the only son of God, they do not either to realize that all enlightened Masters are talking about the same God.
Jesus did not talk about faith, he talked about trust. He talked about discovering a trust in yourself and in relationship to God. Jesus said that the kingdom of God is within you. In Christianity, the church has become the intermediate between man and God, and people who claim that they have found a direct relationship to God are accused of blasphemy. The Christan church has become a barrier between man and God, and anyone who has declared that he has found a direct relationship to God are immediately banned by the church, for example Master Eckhart and Franciskus of Assisi.
I have always had a deep love for Jesus, but it is not the picture of Jesus that the Christian church presents. I was a disciple #Quote by Swami Dhyan Giten
Founders quotes by Stewart Butterfield
#97. When we first started Glitch, there were four co-founders of the company. We built Flickr and worked together at Yahoo and then started Tiny Speck. We were split in Vancouver, New York, and San Francisco. So we used an old chat technology called IRC. Almost nothing went through email. #Quote by Stewart Butterfield
Founders quotes by Sam Altman
#98. Founders are usually very stingy with equity to employees and very generous with equity to investors. I think this is totally backwards. #Quote by Sam Altman
Founders quotes by Susan Jacoby
#99. I still do find the prayers of the Kaddish quite moving, and I just substitute in my mind nature, although that's what the founders did in a lot of their documents, too. They substituted nature or providence for God. I think that's what I do in my head with Jewish God. #Quote by Susan Jacoby
Founders quotes by Mario Livio
#100. The strength of the familiar electromagnetic force between two electrons, for example, is expressed in physics in terms of a constant known as the fine structure constant. The value of this constant, almost exactly 1/137, has puzzled many generations of physicists. A joke made about the famous English physicist Paul Dirac (1902-1984), one of the founders of quantum mechanics, says that upon arrival to heaven he was allowed to ask God one question. His question was: "Why 1/137? #Quote by Mario Livio
Founders quotes by James Altucher
#101. Every successful business, even Google, Facebook, Twitter, started with a combination of manual improvements and friends of the founders using the site. #Quote by James Altucher
Founders quotes by Dan Levitan
#102. We always talk about how you have to build a brand from the inside out, not the outside in. Brands are not wrappers. Brands are based on the values of the founders, and then they spread to the people who work for the company, and then that psychological contract is spread to the customer. #Quote by Dan Levitan
Founders quotes by Colin Howson
#103. One of the recent arguments from design, that based on the so-called fine-tuning life of some fundamental physical constants, founders on the following objections: an extremely small prior probability merited by the God of theism in light – if that is the right word – of the Problem of Evil; the fact that it is not unreasonable to place a substantial probability on the hypothesis that a future theory will fix those values; and the sheer incoherence of computations of the 'chances' of fine-tuning were there no fine-tuner. #Quote by Colin Howson
Founders quotes by Sam Altman
#104. Really dig into projects people have worked on and call references; that is another thing that first time founders like to skip. #Quote by Sam Altman
Founders quotes by Daniel Coyle
#105. A method of schooling founded by the Italian educator Maria Montessori that emphasizes collaborative, explorative learning, and whose alumni include Google's founders, Sergey Brin and Larry Page; Wikipedia founder Jimmy Wales; video-game designer Will Wright; Amazon's founder, Jeff Bezos; chef Julia Child; and rap impresario Sean Combs. #Quote by Daniel Coyle
Founders quotes by Cecily Strong
#106. The founders of Snapchat last year turned down a $3 billion offer from Facebook and a $4 billion offer from Google. It was a surprising show of integrity from the guys who invented the app that lets you look at pictures of boobs for five seconds. #Quote by Cecily Strong
Founders quotes by Joe Conason
#107. Of all the potential perils to the new American republic, the prospect of concentrated power ... troubled the intellectual leaders of the Revolutionary generation. Familiar as the founders were with old Europe ... they understood why the accumulation of inherited wealth led to inequities and imbalances that inevitably corrupted any system of government. #Quote by Joe Conason
Founders quotes by Glenn Beck
#108. Our Founders explicitly designed our system so that all powers not delegated to the federal government (education included) fell to the states or the people; they believed that parents, not government officials, have the moral right to decide what their children are taught. #Quote by Glenn Beck
Founders quotes by Jesse Helms
#109. The challenge is always before us. Whenever we lose sight of the principles that mattered to our founders we run into trouble. #Quote by Jesse Helms
Founders quotes by Sam Altman
#110. It's better to have no cofounder than to have a bad cofounder, but it's still bad to be a solo founder. #Quote by Sam Altman
Founders quotes by Jane Swisshelm
#111. I had gone into the hospital with the stupid notion that its primary object was the care and comfort of the sick and wounded. It was long after that I learned that a vast majority of all benevolent institutions are gotten up to gratify the aesthetic tastes of the public; exhibit the wealth and generosity of the founders, and furnish places for officers. The beneficiaries of the institutions are simply an apology for their existence, and having furnished that apology, the less said about them the better. #Quote by Jane Swisshelm
Founders quotes by Robert Bateman
#112. Blackwater USA has already taken in more than $1 billion from the public coffers. All in all, that's not a bad take for Erik Prince, the founder of Blackwater and a Naval Academy dropout who served less time under the colors of the nation, in uniform, than my most recent pair of boots. #Quote by Robert Bateman
Founders quotes by George B. Cortelyou
#113. It is the privilege and duty of the present generation to pass on to its successors, unimpaired, the heritage of liberty bequeathed to it by the founders of the Republic. #Quote by George B. Cortelyou
Founders quotes by Michelle Obama
#114. I want a president who will teach our children that everyone in this country matters, a president who truly believes in the vision that our Founders put forth all those years ago that we are all created equal, each a beloved part of the great American story. #Quote by Michelle Obama
Founders quotes by Jeffrey Eugenides
#115. Early June, Providence, Rhode Island, the sun up for almost two hours already, lighting up the pale bay and the smokestacks of the Narragansett Electric factory, rising like the sun on the Brown University seal emblazoned on all the pennants and banners draped up over campus, a sun with a sagacious face, representing knowledge. But this sun
the one over Providence
was doing the metaphorical sun one better, because the founders of the university, in their Baptist pessimism, had chosen to depict the light of knowledge enshrouded by clouds, indicating that ignorance had not yet been dispelled from the human realm, whereas the actual sun was just now fighting its way through cloud cover, sending down splintered beams of light and giving hope to the squadrons of parents, who'd been soaked and frozen all weekend, that the unseasonable weather might not ruin the day's activities. #Quote by Jeffrey Eugenides
Founders quotes by Luke Nosek
#116. There would really be no reason to get up in the morning if Founders Fund was not willing to invest in companies that were doing important things, great businesses that very few people believe in. #Quote by Luke Nosek
Founders quotes by Sam Altman
#117. Every thing at a startup gets modeled after the founders. Whatever the founders do becomes the culture. #Quote by Sam Altman
Founders quotes by Ryan Holiday
#118. Growth hackers resist this temptation (or, more appropriate, this delusion). They opt, deliberately, to attract only the early adopters who make or break new tech services and seek to do it as cheaply as possible. In fact, part of the reason the scrappy start-ups, services, and apps in this book might not always be well-known or topics of daily conversation is because their founders have focused their energies on product development with an eye toward growth - they're now millions of members strong without any superfluous "buzz." They got to mass market by ignoring the urge to appeal to the mass market, at least to start with. #Quote by Ryan Holiday
Founders quotes by Jonathan Reckford
#119. The entire Habitat family mourns the loss of our founder, a true giant in the affordable housing movement. Our prayers are with the entire Fuller family. #Quote by Jonathan Reckford
Founders quotes by Yann Martel
#120. I wish I could convey the perfection of a seal slipping into water or a spider monkey swinging from point to point or a lion merely turning its head. But language founders in such seas. Better to picture it in your head if you want to feel it ... I spent more hours than I can count a quiet witness to the highly mannered, manifold expressions of life that grace our planet. It is something so bright, loud, weird and delicate as to stupefy the senses. #Quote by Yann Martel
Founders quotes by Albert Einstein
#121. If the believers of the present-day religions would earnestly try to think and act in the spirit of the founders of these religions then no hostility on the basis of religion would exist among the followers of the different faiths. Even the conflicts and the realm of religion would be exposed as insignificant. #Quote by Albert Einstein
Founders quotes by Rudolf Steiner
#122. All the great Founders of religions have been possessed of clairvoyant sight. #Quote by Rudolf Steiner
Founders quotes by Daymond John
#123. In the founders, I look for a person I feel is trustworthy, driven and smart. I invest in the person first, because in the event the business fails, the person and I can move forward and create another business. #Quote by Daymond John
Founders quotes by Ernest Agyemang Yeboah
#124. The day history will die and lose its essence with time, memories will not only die, but they shall also surely be forgotten with time! #Quote by Ernest Agyemang Yeboah
Founders quotes by Virginia Woolf
#125. And I will now rock the brown basin from side to side so that my ships may ride the waves. Some will founder. Some will dash themselves against the cliffs. One sails alone. That is my ship. It sails into icy caverns where the sea-bear barks and stalactites swing green chains. #Quote by Virginia Woolf
Founders quotes by David L. Holmes
#126. Finally, none of the founding fathers knew anything of the churches that became so large in the United States in the twentieth century - the Pentecostals (or charismatics) and the nondenominational evangelicals. What the six founding fathers did know were the churches in which they had been raised - and in all cases those churches were the established churches of their colonies. But the founders were also very familiar with a radical religious outlook called Deism, to which this study now turns. #Quote by David L. Holmes
Founders quotes by Kurt Vonnegut
#127. A lot of nonsense was the innocent result of playfulness on the part of the founding fathers of the nation of Dwayne Hoover and Kilgore Trout. The founders were aristocrats, and they wished to show off their useless education, which consisted of the study of hocus-pocus from ancient times. They were bum poets as well. #Quote by Kurt Vonnegut
Founders quotes by Vivek Wadhwa
#128. If you don't have savings, and your co-founders are as poor as you are, and if Mom and Dad won't loan you money, then your best bet is to find people that know you - your friends. If they, too, won't help, then you're stuck seeking out angel investors. #Quote by Vivek Wadhwa
Founders quotes by Francis Bacon
#129. The dignity of this end of endowment of man's life with new commodity appeareth by the estimation that antiquity made of such as guided thereunto ; for whereas founders of states, lawgivers, extirpators of tyrants, fathers of the people, were honoured but with the titles of demigods, inventors ere ever consecrated among the gods themselves. #Quote by Francis Bacon
Founders quotes by Matthew Freud

Founders quotes by Barack Obama
#131. Our founders made it extraordinarily difficult to amend the Constitution. #Quote by Barack Obama
Founders quotes by Sheryl Sandberg

Founders quotes by Vincent Van Gogh
#133. I am no friend of present-day Christianity, though its Founder was sublime. #Quote by Vincent Van Gogh
Founders quotes by Todd McFarlane
#134. I think people would actually be surprised by what we put out. Unfortunately the shadow that the original founders cast was that they were just artists that can't write books so people swept the whole of Image with that paintbrush. #Quote by Todd McFarlane
Founders quotes by Vladimir Putin
#135. The United Nations' founders understood that decisions affecting war and peace should happen only by consensus, and with America's consent, the veto by Security Council permanent members was enshrined in the United Nations Charter. The profound wisdom of this has underpinned the stability of international relations for decades. #Quote by Vladimir Putin
Founders quotes by C.S. Friedman
#136. It struck Hsing suddenly that Masada didn't even understand the nature of his own genius. To him the patterns of thought and motive that he sensed in the virus were self-explanatory, and those who could not see them were simply not looking hard enough. Yet he would readily admit to his own inability to analyze more human contact, even on the most basic level. That was part and parcel of being iru.

What a strange combination of skills and flaws. What an utterly alien profile. Praise the founders of Guera for having taught them all to nurture such specialized talent, rather than seeking to "cure" it. It was little wonder that most innovations in technology now came from the Gueran colonies, and that Earth, who set such a strict standard of psychological "normalcy," now produced little that was truly exciting. Thank God their own ancestors had left that doomed planet before they, too, had lost the genes of wild genius. Thank God they had seen the creative holocaust coming, and escaped it. #Quote by C.S. Friedman
Founders quotes by Rudolph Koch
#137. We are type designers, punch cutters, wood cutters, type founders, compositors, printers, and book binders from conviction and with passion, not because we are insufficiently talented for other higher things, but because for us the highest things stand in close kinship to those ends #Quote by Rudolph Koch
Founders quotes by Denise Duhamel
#138. The busybody (banned as sexist, demeaning to older women) who lives next door called my daughter a tomboy (banned as sexist) when she climbed the jungle (banned; replaced with "rain forest") gym. Then she had the nerve to call her an egghead and a bookworm (both banned as offensive; replaced with "intellectual") because she read fairy (banned because suggests homosexuality; replace with "elf") tales.

I'm tired of the Language Police turning a deaf ear (banned as handicapism) to my complaints. I'm no Pollyanna (banned as sexist) and will not accept any lame (banned as offensive; replace with "walks with a cane") excuses at this time.

If Alanis Morrissette can play God (banned) in Dogma (banned as ethnocentric; replace with "Doctrine" or "Belief"), why can't my daughter play stickball (banned as regional or ethnic bias) on boy's night out (banned as sexist)? Why can't she build a snowman (banned, replace with "snow person") without that fanatic (banned as ethnocentric; replace with "believer," "follower," or "adherent") next door telling her she's going to hell (banned; replaced with "heck" or "darn")?

Do you really think this is what the Founding Fathers (banned as sexist; replace with "the Founders" or "the Framers") had in mind? That we can't even enjoy our Devil (banned)-ed ham sandwiches in peace? I say put a stop to this cult (banned as ethnocentric) of PC old wives' tales (banned as sexist; replace with "folk wisdom") and extremist (banne #Quote by Denise Duhamel
Founders quotes by Drexel Deal
#139. I'm there for my son 24/7, because I don't want him to take the road we took. I believe if I had a father around, I would've learned plenty things. There was no father there to tell me look here son, this is the wrong way to go. When we were coming up, we learned through trial and error. Anthony 'Ada' Allen, one of the former leaders and founders of the Rebellion Raiders street gang. #Quote by Drexel Deal
Founders quotes by Jay Samit
#140. Founders need sizable egos to believe that what they are creating is good enough to change the world. What makes for great co-founders is having those egos focused on complementary, not competing, skills. #Quote by Jay Samit
Founders quotes by Hugo Black
#141. In revealing the workings of government that led to the Vietnam War, the newspapers nobly did precisely that which the Founders hoped and trusted they would do. #Quote by Hugo Black
Founders quotes by Arthur Koestler
#142. In the immortal parable of the Cave, where men stand in their chains backs to the light , perceiving only the play of shadows on the wall, unaware that these are but shadows, unaware of the luminous reality outside the Cave-in this allegory of the human condition, Plato hit an archetypal chord as pregnant with echoes as Pythagoras' Harmony of the Spheres. But when we think of Neoplatonism and scholasticism as concrete philosophies and precepts of life, we may be tempted to reverse the game, and to paint a picture of the founders of the Academy and the Lyceum as two frightened men standing in the self-same Cave, facing the wall, chained to their places in a catastrophic age, turning their back on the flame of Greece's heroic era, and throwing grotesque shadows which are to haunt mankind for a thousand years and more. #Quote by Arthur Koestler
Founders quotes by Brian Staveley
#143. Oh for 'Shael's sweet sake, girl, you think you can rule an empire without lying? You think your father didn't lie? Or his father? Or any of your goldy-eyed great-great-founders of Annur? It's built into the job. Bakers have flour, fishermen have nets, and leaders have lies. #Quote by Brian Staveley
Founders quotes by Plato
#144. For a young person cannot judge what is allegorical and what is literal; anything that he receives into his mind at that age is likely to become indelible and unalterable; and therefore it is most important that the tales which the young first hear should be models of virtuous thoughts. There you are right, he replied; but if any one asks where are such models to be found and of what tales are you speaking - how shall we answer him? I said to him, You and I, Adeimantus, at this moment are not poets, but founders of a State: now the founders of a State ought to know the general forms in which poets should cast their tales, and the limits which must be observed by them, but to make the tales is not their business.

#145. There are a lot of white female-led startups that are raising money without a tech founder. At the core of it is value. #Quote by Kathryn Finney
Founders quotes by David Barton
#146. The Founders believed that pluralism survived only within the concept of religious liberty espoused by American Christianity. #Quote by David Barton
Founders quotes by Sri Aurobindo
#147. All fanaticism is false, because it is a contradiction of the very nature of God and of Truth. Truth cannot be shut up in a single book, Bible or Veda or Koran, or in a single religion. The Divine Being is eternal and universal and infinite and cannot be the sole property of the Mussulmans or of the Semitic religions only, - those that happened to be in a line from the Bible and to have Jewish or Arabian prophets for their founders. #Quote by Sri Aurobindo
Founders quotes by Terry Pratchett
#148. In the words of the philosopher Sceptum, the founder of my profession: am I going to get paid for this? #Quote by Terry Pratchett
Founders quotes by James MacGregor Burns
#149. Let us face reality. The framers (of the Constitution) have simply been too shrewd for us. They have outwitted us. They designed separate institutions that cannot be unified by mechanical linkages frail bridges(or) tinkering. If we are to turn the founders upside down we must directly confront the Constitutional structure they erected. #Quote by James MacGregor Burns
Founders quotes by Jesselyn Radack
#150. The fact that other countries spy on their own people or spy on each other does not address the fact that the US is engaged in massive, bulk collection to the tune of 70.3 million telecommunications a month in France of perfectly innocent people. That has nothing to do with protecting the United States, and has nothing to do with really gathering any kind of meaningful intelligence on France. It is an overreach ... and I think the other countries are justifiably outraged ... As one of our founders said: Those who choose between liberty and security deserve neither. #Quote by Jesselyn Radack
Founders quotes by W. Cleon Skousen
#151. The Founders believed these same principles would work for any nation. The key was using the government to protect equal rights, not to provide equal things. #Quote by W. Cleon Skousen
Founders quotes by Richard Cecil
#152. When a founder has cast a bell he does not presently fix it in the steeple, but tries it with his hammer, and beats it on every side to see if there be any flaw in it. So Christ doth not presently after he hath converted a man, convey him to heaven; but suffers him first to be beaten upon by many temptations and then exalts him to his crown. #Quote by Richard Cecil
Founders quotes by Paul Graham
#153. I get a lot of criticism for telling founders to focus first on making something great, instead of worrying about how to make money. And yet that is exactly what Google did. And Apple, for that matter. You'd think examples like that would be enough to convince people. #Quote by Paul Graham
Founders quotes by Sean Hannity
#154. At heart, American conservatives like myself are believers in the Constitution. We believe that the principles embodied in the Constitution are enduring, and that to whatever extent we deviate from them we put our liberties at risk. Our views are consistent because we believe in absolute truths and the essential soundness, even righteousness, of the Founder's vision of government. #Quote by Sean Hannity
Founders quotes by Robert A. Heinlein
#155. Dad claims that library science is the foundation of all sciences just
as math is the key
and we will survive or founder, depending on how
well the librarians do their jobs. Librarians didn't look glamorous to
me but maybe Dad had hit on a not very obvious truth. #Quote by Robert A. Heinlein
Founders quotes by Jerry Falwell
#156. There is no separation of church and state. Modern US Supreme Courts have raped the Constitution and raped the Christian faith and raped the churches by misinterpreting what the Founders had in mind in the First Amendment to the Constitution. #Quote by Jerry Falwell
Founders quotes by Marcus Luttrell
#157. Americans should never forget that the founders of this country, like all who have served her in uniform, were willing to die defending everything its flag represents. It's so easy to get lost in the controversies that divide us. But I believe, no matter what our race, religion, or beliefs may be, that Americans should be able to come together to keep our country rooted in what made it great: a land of opportunity, a place where people can make something of themselves, limited only by their imaginations and willingness to work hard; a country where we can all come together, whatever our differences, for the greater good; a country of hands up, not handouts, where we try to live by the meaning of the words "Love thy neighbor," and put as much effort into helping others as we do helping ourselves. By doing those things, we can continue to live up to the idea of "One nation, under God, indivisible, with liberty and justice for all. #Quote by Marcus Luttrell
Founders quotes by David Plotz
#158. You're talking to investors - and investors, they look at you and they realize, you know, not every business they invest in are the founders or the people running it going to have every bit of skill - and I think they looked at me and realized, OK, this is a guy who's got a lot - I'm much older than the usual run of people they fund. #Quote by David Plotz
Founders quotes by Jack Hitt
#159. The main idea of personal happiness at that [Colonial] time was not some hedonistic notion of pleasure but the other, more philosophical, kind. The Greek philosophers believed that discovering one's own talents and then taking the pleasure of exploiting them (finding out that you had a singing voice, could write well, start a company, or invent new things), that was the deeper pleasure the founders had in mind and the freedom they sought. #Quote by Jack Hitt
Founders quotes by Paul Graham

Founders quotes by Daniel J. Levitin
#164. Most of us have adopted a strategy to get along called satisficing, a term coined by the Nobel Prize winner Herbert Simon, one of the founders of the fields of organization theory and information processing. Simon wanted a word to describe not getting the very best option but one that was good enough. For things that don't matter critically, we make a choice that satisfies us and is deemed sufficient. #Quote by Daniel J. Levitin
Founders quotes by Sherrilyn Kenyon

Founders quotes by Christine Jennings
#166. Utopian fiction is really boring. I had to read a lot of it, and it's not that much fun. But they're fascinating to me as historical documents. Cabet [Icaria's founder and author of the utopian novel, Travels in Icaria], is writing in the 1830s, and his idea of the perfect society reveals a lot about his time. But his book is uniquely bad. #Quote by Christine Jennings
Founders quotes by John C. Maxwell
#167. The Visalus Founders are the finest and sharpest young leaders that I have ever met. #Quote by John C. Maxwell
Founders quotes by Jeff Biggers
#168. Third, resistance is a tradition of building blocks; a continuum of action that may not have dislodged injustice in its own time, but whose revolutionary founders left behind the framework and tools for a subsequent generation to take up, and ultimately carry out its vision. We can stand back and admire certain laws and protections now - child labor laws, voter enfranchisement for all, an eight-hour work day, clean water, for example - and appreciate the irreversible process of resistance that not only guaranteed their formation, but fought off the innumerable attacks that once kept them from rising. #Quote by Jeff Biggers
Founders quotes by Mark R. Levin
#169. Equality, as understood by the American Founders, is the natural right of every individual to live freely under self-government, to acquire and retain the property he creates through his own labor, and to be treated impartially before a just law. Moreover, equality should not be confused with perfection, for man is also imperfect, making his application of equality, even in the most just society, imperfect. Otherwise, inequality is the natural state of man in the sense that each individual is born unique in all his human characteristics. Therefore, equality and inequality, properly comprehended, are both engines of liberty. #Quote by Mark R. Levin
Founders quotes by Leopold Von Ranke
#170. Calvin was virtually the founder of America. #Quote by Leopold Von Ranke
Founders quotes by Mike Pence
#171. Our founders insisted that protecting the states' power to govern themselves was vital to limit the power of Washington and preserve freedom. #Quote by Mike Pence
Founders quotes by Sharron Angle
#172. Our Founders warned against this. They said don't ... that your liberty is only as secure as the people are. Because once they, um, get the ability to vote themselves entitlements from the largesse of the government, liberty is done; freedom is over with. We were warned. We are there. #Quote by Sharron Angle
Founders quotes by Sam Altman
#173. Before 20 or 25 employees, most companies are structured with everyone reporting to the founder. It's totally flat. #Quote by Sam Altman
Founders quotes by Edward Feser
#174. The moral views now associated in the secularist mind with superstition and ignorance in fact follow inexorably from a consistent application of the metaphysical ideas we've traced back through Aquinas and the other Scholastic thinkers to Plato and Aristotle, the very greatest of the Greek founders of the Western intellectual tradition. #Quote by Edward Feser
Founders quotes by Ramsey Clark
#175. Impeachment appears six times in the U.S. Constitution. The Founders weren't concerned with anything more than with impeachment because they had lived under King George III and had in 1776 accused the king of all the things that George W. Bush wants to do: Usurpation of the power of the people; Being above the law; Criminal abuse of authority. #Quote by Ramsey Clark
Founders quotes by Gary Bauer
#176. For the record, I believe elected officials should talk about faith. Our founders believed the moral principles of faith were indispensable to our nation's survival. The Declaration of Independence mentions God four times. #Quote by Gary Bauer
Founders quotes by Al Franken

Founders quotes by Vladimir Prelog

Founders quotes by Billy Graham
#179. America's founding fathers did not intend to take religion out of education. Many of the nation's greatest universities were founded by evangelists and religious leaders; but many of these have lost the founders concept and become secular institutions. Because of this attitude, secular education is stumbling and floundering. #Quote by Billy Graham
Founders quotes by Philip S Gorski
#180. Second, some common interpretations of our shared past are badly in need of correction.

Revolutionary worldviews were actually a rich mixture of Jewish, Christian, liberal, and republican ideas and values. Third, #Quote by Philip S Gorski

#182. After 100 years of trying, finally we passed health care for all Americans as a right for all - not just a privilege for a few. It honored the vows of our Founders: Of life, a healthier life; liberty; the freedom to pursue our own happinesses ... We knew that ... this bill was ironclad constitutionally. #Quote by Nancy Pelosi
Founders quotes by Dinesh D'Souza
#183. There are some who invoke separation of church and state - to try to get the government out of the business of morality - but this is antithetical to what the founders wanted. The founders wanted to keep theology out of government so that government could focus on the proper business of morality. #Quote by Dinesh D'Souza

Founders quotes by John Harvey Kellogg

Founders quotes by Arthur Conan Doyle
#190. There are many men in London, you know, who, some from shyness, some from misanthropy, have no wish for the company of their fellows. Yet they are not averse to comfortable chairs and the latest periodicals. It is for the convenience of these that the Diogenes Club was started, and it now contains the most unsociable and unclubbable men in town. No member is permitted to take the least notice of any other one. Save in the Stranger's Room, no talking is, under any circumstances, allowed, and three offenses, if brought to the notice of the committee, render the talker liable to expulsion. My brother was one of the founders, and I have myself found it a very soothing atmosphere. #Quote by Arthur Conan Doyle
Founders quotes by Walter E. Williams
#191. When the Founders thought of democracy, they saw democracy in the political sphere - a sphere strictly limited by the Constitution's well-defined and enumerated powers given the federal government. Substituting democratic decision making for what should be private decision making is nothing less than tyranny dressed up. #Quote by Walter E. Williams
Founders quotes by Cory Booker
#192. Our nation was not founded because we all looked alike, or prayed alike, or descended from the same family tree. But our founders, in their genius, in this, the oldest constitutional democracy, put forth on this earth the idea that all are created equal; that we all have inalienable rights. #Quote by Cory Booker
Founders quotes by David McCullough
#193. The more we see the founders as humans the more we can understand them. #Quote by David McCullough

Founders quotes by Wayne Besen
#195. The founder of every ex-gay ministry in America has proved to be an extraordinary failure. The two founders of Exodus International, [the world's largest 'ex-gay' organization], divorced their wives to move in together, #Quote by Wayne Besen
Founders quotes by Dan Dye
#196. People know us best for our entrepreneurial success as the founders of Three Dog Bakery; what they don't know is that we owe it all to a gigantic deaf dog named Gracie. But even though Gracie sowed the seeds of our success, this isn't a book about "making it." This is the story of a dog who was born with the cards stacked against her, but whose passionate, joyful nature helped her turn what could have been a dog's life into a victory of the canine spirit - and, in the process, save two guys who thought they were saving her. #Quote by Dan Dye
Founders quotes by Josh Kopelman
#197. I don't think Philadelphia's challenge is in coming up with great ideas or having great founders. I think the real challenge is keeping them here. #Quote by Josh Kopelman
Founders quotes by Juicy J
#198. As one of the founders of Three 6 Mafia, I would like to see the group get back together, you know. But I am definitely thinking about it and would like to see it happen. #Quote by Juicy J

#199. What we believe at Founders Fund is that technology is a way to help everybody on the planet. #Quote by Luke Nosek
Founders quotes by Rachel Maddow
#200. The reason the founders chafed at the idea of an American standing army and vested the power of war making in the cumbersome legislature was not to disadvantage us against future enemies, but to disincline us toward war as a general matter ... With citizen-soldiers, with the certainty of a vigorous political debate over the use of a military subject to politicians' control, the idea was for us to feel it- uncomfortably- every second we were at war. But after a generation or two of shedding the deliberate political encumbrances to war that they left us ... war making has become almost an autonomous function of the American state. It never stops. #Quote by Rachel Maddow
