Quote Of Day Two


This quote is from one of my favourite books. I love Little Women. In the book it refers to slang, but it always makes me think of the importance of using good verbs. That will mean no adverbs are needed (eg. don’t say ‘walked quickly’. Say ‘trotted’ or ‘strode’). And, in the words of another author, ‘the road to hell is paved with adverbs.’ 

There, that’s two quotes for the price of one!
