WORDS ABOUT WORDS
We live, unluckily perhaps, in a world where a good deal of public and private business has to be done in print or in typescript. Nearly everybody must "write." And in most of these routine matters the one virtue that is important, and seldom shown, is to be understood.
Lyman Bryson, American educator, Forword to The Art of Plain Talk, by Rudolf Flesch, 1951
