Famous quotes containing the word base:

    Jealousy is both reasonable and belongs to reasonable men, while envy is base and belongs to the base, for the one makes himself get good things by jealousy, while the other does not allow his neighbour to have them through envy.
    Aristotle (384–322 B.C.)

    Were I as base as is the lowly plain,
    And you, my Love, as high as heaven above,
    Yet should the thoughts of me, your humble swain,
    Ascend to heaven in honour of my love.
    Joshua Sylvester (1561–1618)

    Do not gain basely; base gain is equal to ruin.
    Hesiod (c. 8th century B.C.)
