IMPUDENCE
[ Also see Boldness Impertinence Insult Offense Presumption ]

He that has but impudence,
  To all things has a fair pretence;
    And put among his wants but shame,
      To all the world may lay his claim.
      - Samuel Butler (1)

With that dull, rooted, callous impudence,
  Which, dead to shame, and ev'ry nicer sense,
    Ne'er blushed, unless in spreading vice's snares,
      She blunder'd on some virtue unawares.
      - Charles Churchill

The way to avoid the imputation of impudence is not to be ashamed of what we do, but never to do what we ought to be ashamed of.
      - Cicero (Marcus Tullius Cicero) (often called "Tully" for short)

What was said by the Latin poet of labor--that it conquers all things--is much more true when applied to impudence.
      - Henry Fielding

There is no better provision for life than impudence and a brazen face.
      - Menander

Impudence is no virtue; yet able to beggar them all; being for the most part in good plight, when the rest starve, and capable of carrying her followers up to the highest preferments; as useful in a court as armor in a camp.
      - Sir Thomas Osborne

What! canst thou say all this and never blush?
      - William Shakespeare

A true and genuine impudence is ever the effect of ignorance, without the least sense of it.
      - Sir Richard Steele
