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)

    Captain, down where I come from we dearly love our whiskey, but we don’t drink with a man unless we respect him.
    James Poe, U.S. screenwriter, and Based On Play. Robert Aldrich. Sergeant Tolliver (Buddy Ebsen)

    A marriage based on full confidence, based on complete and unqualified frankness on both sides; they are not keeping anything back; there’s no deception underneath it all. If I might so put it, it’s an agreement for the mutual forgiveness of sin.
    Henrik Ibsen (1828–1906)
