Monday Musings, 34: "Brevity"

Sometimes saying very little is just enough. Sometimes it's more effective to say what you need to say in as little words as possible. Brevity is not a characteristic of a mindless or inarticulate person. It's the art of the cunning and those who dare to get straight to the point. You can say a lot, even if you don't say much.

The most valuable of all talents is that of never using two words when one will do.
— Thomas Jefferson
