“An excessive use of exclamation marks is a certain indication of an unpractised writer or of one who wants to add a spurious dash of sensation to something unsensational.”
H. W. Fowler

“Pretentious quotations [are] the surest road to tedium.”
Henry Watson Fowler, A Dictionary of Modern English Usage

H. W. Fowler
