How to use rugged in a sentence?

  1. James A. Garfield:

    Nobody but radicals have ever accomplished anything in a great crisis. Conservatives have their place in the piping times of peace; but in emergencies only rugged issue men amount to much.

  2. Adam Twidell:

    The runway appears, framed in the island's rugged outline as you approach. Depending on wind conditions, pilots can land on both ends of the 400-meter strip. It's like landing on an aircraft carrier, with a deep drop-off into the sea.

  3. Timothy Fleming:

    Yukon GMC has marketed Yukon GMC pretty successfully as the rugged, more premium brand relative to Chevy.

  4. Emeasoba George:

    I'm too positive minded to become negative minded. I'm too optimistic to become pessimistic. I'm equally too hopeful to become hopeless in life. Moreover, I'm too determined to become frustrated and defeated. I'm as well too rugged to become dispirited by anything or anyone. Now, that's why the slaughter house of failure cannot and will never rule over me and my God-given destiny. What am I trying to say in essence? I'm just saying that, I'm a positivist to the core. Besides, I'm equally a die hard optimist. Who are you and how about you anyway?

  5. Mahabharata:

    She is a wife who is notable in her house; she is a wife who beareth children; she is a wife whose husband is as her life; she is a wife who is obedient to her lord. The wife is half the man; a wife is man?s dearest friend; a wife is the source of his religion, his worldly profit, and his love. He who hath a wife maketh offerings in his house. Those who have wives are blest with good fortune. Wives are friends, who, by their kind and gentle speech, soothe you in your retirement. In your distresses they are as mothers, and they are refreshment to those who are travellers in the rugged paths of life.
