Quotations

I think I like this George Orwell guy. :)

A scrupulous writer, in every sentence that he writes, will ask himself at least four questions, thus: 1. What am I trying to say? 2. What words will express it? 3. What image or idiom will make it clearer? 4. Is this image fresh enough to have an effect?
George Orwell (1903 - 1950), "Politics and the English Language", 1946


In certain kinds of writing, particularly in art criticism and literary criticism, it is normal to come across long passages which are almost completely lacking in meaning.
George Orwell (1903 - 1950), "Politics and the English Language", 1946
