Famous quotes containing the word gross:

    Hunger is never delicate; they who are seldom gorged to the full with praise may be safely fed with gross compliments, for the appetite must be satisfied before it is disgusted.
    Samuel Johnson (1709–1784)

    How weary, stale, flat, and unprofitable
    Seem to me all the uses of this world!
    Fie on’t, ah fie! ‘tis an unweeded garden
    That grows to seed, things rank and gross in nature
    Possess it merely.
    William Shakespeare (1564–1616)

    In the gross and scope of mine opinion,
    This bodes some strange eruption to our state.
    William Shakespeare (1564–1616)
