When I was in the ninth grade (Circa early 60's), my teacher, a gentleman in his 70's, made a statement to the class that has stayed with me for all these years.
He said, "Your success in this short journey on earth depends greatly upon your mastery of both the spoken and written word". Although my success to this point may be questionable, I always try to be clear and concise in both spoken and written communication.
I suppose that if one gets the point across, then he/she has achieved the intended purpose. Similar to making knives........ Can I just get by, or do I want the best that I am capable of producing?
