A couple more quotes...

“I am returning this otherwise good typing paper to you because someone printed gibberish all over it and put your name at the top.” ~ English Professor (Name Unknown), Ohio University

“Substitute “damn” every time you’re inclined to write “very;” your editor will delete it and the writing will be just as is should be.” ~ Mark Twain

Can’t say I understand what Twain means. I fear I use the word “very,” when ever I feel very inclined to do so. And I doubt editors would be removing the word “damn” now days. Still, I like the quote!

And, no, an English Professor did not say that to me. Though it certainly could happen, I know I make plenty of mistakes and write my own share of gibberish. So as you read my blog, try to over-look any typographical errors, if you wouldn’t mind.

Those are great! I can't believe I hadn't seen either one of them before. Although I have to agree that "damn" would probably stay in now, although I suppose it wouldn't fit in all contexts, so it that case it may face removal.
