Based

Famous quotes containing the word based:

    Collective guilt is borne by what is conventionally called the scapegoat. Now the scapegoat for white society—which is based on myths of progress, civilization, liberalism, education, enlightenment, refinement—will be precisely the force that opposes the expansion and the triumph of these myths. This brutal opposing force is supplied by the Negro.
    Frantz Fanon (1925–1961)

    Tempered, gradual animation, the methodical restrain of sensations and energies, the equilibrium of sickness and health in each creature—this is nature’s essence, its immutable law, this is what it’s based on and what it adheres to.
    Ivan Sergeevich Turgenev (1818–1883)

    The trouble with this country is that there are too many politicians who believe, with a conviction based on experience, that you can fool all of the people all of the time.
    Franklin Pierce Adams (1881–1960)
