“In the works of Shakespeare, the most wonderful genius the world has ever known, there is the enormous number of 15,000 different words, but almost 10,000 of them are obsolete or meaningless today.”
Joseph Devlin, How to Speak and Write Correctly

“To use a big word or a foreign word when a small one and a familiar one will answer the same purpose, is a sign of ignorance. Great scholars and writers and polite speakers use simple words.”
Joseph Devlin, How to Speak and Write Correctly

“A child can learn what is right as easy as what is wrong and whatever impressions are made on the mind when it is plastic will remain there.”
Joseph Devlin, How to Speak and Write Correctly
