Don’t weaken what is naturally strong.

by Todd Foley

ā€œ’Very’ is the most useless word in the English language and can always come out. More than useless, it is treacherous because it invariably weakens what it is intended to strengthen. For example, would you rather hear the mincing shallowness of ‘I love you very much’ or the heart-slamming intensity of ‘I love you’?”
