. . . the surest way to arouse and hold the attention of the reader is by
being specific, definite, and concrete.

they deal in particulars and report the details that matter.
Their words call up pictures.
~ William Strunk, Jr. (1869 – 1946)
American Professor of English at Cornell University,
Author of The Elements of Style
