Famous quotes containing the word due:

    The people of the United States have been fortunate in many things. One of the things in which we have been most fortunate has been that so far, due perhaps to certain basic virtues in our traditional ways of doing things, we have managed to keep the crisis of western civilization, which has devastated the rest of the world and in which we are as much involved as anybody, more or less at arm’s length.
    John Dos Passos (1896–1970)

    Mine eye’s due is thine outward part,
    And my heart’s right thine inward love of heart.
    William Shakespeare (1564–1616)
