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

We must do what America does best: offer more opportunity to all and demand responsibility from all”…Bill Clinton, New York Times, Washington, D.C. (January 20, 1993)
