Netiquette Quote of The Day - Figures of Speech- Via Netiquette IQ


My blog yesterday listed the most common figures of speech. These literary devices can find their way into many of our emails, letters, even resumes and proposals! Today's quote from Samuel Beckett reflects this. It is far better Netiquette and it will produce better results, to use power words rather than figures of speech!

"I know those little phrases that seem so innocuous and, once you let them in, pollute the whole of speech. Nothing is more real than nothing. They rise up out of the pit and know no rest until they drag you down into its dark." ATTRIBUTION DETAIL »
-Samuel Beckett
