From Webster's Revised Unabridged Dictionary (1913) [web1913]:
   Project \Proj"ect\ (?; 277), n. [OF. project, F. projet, fr. L.
      projectus, p. p. of projicere to project; pro forward +
      jacere to throw. See {Jet} a shooting forth, and cf.
      {Projet}.]
      1. The place from which a thing projects, or starts forth.

                  sense, will be slow in forming them into designs. See
                  also {Scheme}.
