Famous quotes containing the word rude:

    Who is here so base that would be a bondman? If any, speak, for him have I offended. Who is here so rude that would not be a Roman? If any, speak, for him have I offended. Who is here so vile that will not love his country? If any, speak, for him have I offended.
    William Shakespeare (1564–1616)

    That primitive head
    So ambitiously vast,
    Yet so rude in its art,
    Is as easily read
    For the woes of the past
    As a clinical chart.
    Robert Frost (1874–1963)

    Sir Walter, being strangely surprised and put out of his countenance at so great a table, gives his son a damned blow over the face. His son, as rude as he was, would not strike his father, but strikes over the face the gentleman that sat next to him and said “Box about: ‘twill come to my father anon.”
    John Aubrey (1626–1697)
