Famous quotes containing the word rude:

    The Indian is one of Nature’s gentlemen—he never says or does a rude or vulgar thing. The vicious, uneducated barbarians, who form the surplus of overpopulous European countries, are far behind the wild man in delicacy of feeling or natural courtesy.
    Susanna Moodie (1803–1885)

    I’ve had this feeling ever since I graduated. This kind of compulsion that I have to be rude all the time.
    Calder Willingham (1923–1995)

    Not all the water in the rough rude sea
    Can wash the balm off from an anointed king;
    The breath of worldly men cannot depose
    The deputy elected by the Lord.
    William Shakespeare (1564–1616)
