So avoid using the word ‘very’ because it’s lazy. A man is not very tired, he is exhausted. Don’t use very sad, use morose. Language was invented for one reason, boys – to woo women – and, in that endeavor, laziness will not do. It also won’t do in your essays.
by N.H. Kleinbaum from “Dead Poets Society”
Words are sacred… Every choice is significant and when it feels difficult and immense to imagine anyone in the world could possibly understand what you’re feeling, just remember; you probably haven’t found the right words to express it.
I love language…
