Words of wisdom

“It is more fun to talk with someone who doesn’t use long, difficult words but rather short, easy words like “What about lunch?”. (A.A. Milne, quoted in The Economist).

My comment: Amen to that! I remember at school my English teacher firmly telling us that long words don’t necessarily denote a brainy fellow, more likely a pompous one. Wonderful writer was A. A. Milne – lucid and straightforward.
