Based

Famous quotes containing the word based:

    The time must come, my friend ... when brutality and the lust for power must perish by its own sword.... For when that day comes, the world must begin to look for a new life, and it is our hope that they may find it here. For here we shall be, with their books, and their music, and a way of life based on one simple rule: Be kind.
    Robert Riskin (1897–1955)

    A woman does not have to make decisions based on the need to survive. She can cut through issues, call shots as she sees them.... Many bad decisions are made by men in government because it is good for them personally to make bad public decisions.
    Dianne Feinstein (b. 1933)

    Few white citizens are acquainted with blacks other than those projected by the media and the so—called educational system, which is nothing more than a system of rewards and punishments based upon one’s ability to pledge loyalty oaths to Anglo culture. The media and the “educational system” are the prime sources of racism in the United States.
    Ishmael Reed (b. 1938)
