Quote of the Day (Somerset Maugham, on the Overwhelming Importance of Writing Clearly)

“Anything is better than not to write clearly. There is nothing to be said against lucidity, and against simplicity only the possibility of dryness. This is a risk that is well worth taking when you reflect how much better it is to be bald than to wear a curly wig.” — British man of letters W. Somerset Maugham (1874-1965), The Summing Up (1938)
