Omit Needless Words

William Strunk Jr.


Omit needless words. Vigorous writing is concise.
A sentence should contain no unnecessary words,
a paragraph no unnecessary sentences, for the same reason that
a drawing should have no unnecessary lines and
a machine no unnecessary parts. 

~ William Strunk, Jr. (1869 – 1946)
American Professor of English at Cornell University,
Author of The Elements of Style
