Famous quotes containing the word base:

    Then must you speak
    Of one the lov’d not wisely but too well;
    Of one not easily jealous, but, being wrought,
    Perplex’d in the extreme; of one whose hand,
    Like the base Indian, threw a pearl away
    Richer than all his tribe;
    William Shakespeare (1564–1616)

    The desire of most parents is first and foremost to do what is best for their children. Every interview with a mother or father confirms this, every letter written by a parent breathes this deep-seated wish, “I hope I am doing the right thing for my child.” This is real and honest, and at the very base of parenthood.
    Irma Simonton Black (20th century)

    Yet herein will I imitate the sun,
    Who doth permit the base contagious clouds
    To smother up his beauty from the world,
    That when he please again to be himself,
    Being wanted, he may be more wondered at
    By breaking through the foul and ugly mists
    Of vapors that did seem to strangle him
    William Shakespeare (1564–1616)
