How to use gaudy in a sentence?

  1. William Shakespeare, "King Henry VI Part II", Act 4 scene 1:

    The gaudy, blabbing, and remorseful day Is crept into the bosom of the sea.

  2. Italo Calvino:

    I am prisoner of a gaudy and unlivable present, where all forms of human society have reached an extreme of their cycle and there is no imagining what new forms they may assume.

  3. H. L. Mencken:

    ...no man of genuinely superior intelligence has ever been an actor. Even supposing a young man of appreciable mental powers to be lured upon the stage, as philosophers are occasionally lured into bordellos, his mind would be inevitably and almost immediately destroyed by the gaudy nonsense issuing from his mouth every night.

  4. Henry Louis Mencken:

    A man's women folk, whatever their outward show of respect for his merit and authority, always regard him secretly as an ass, and with something akin to pity. His most gaudy sayings and doings seldom deceive them they see the actual man within, and know him for a shallow and pathetic fellow. In this fact, perhaps, lies one of the best proofs of feminine intelligence, or, as the common phrase makes it, feminine intuition.

  5. Dolly Partonhas:

    I’m most comfortable in high heels and wigs and makeup and gaudy clothes.
