Orwell on writing

It [the English language] becomes ugly and inaccurate because our thoughts are foolish, but the slovenliness of our language makes it easier for us to have foolish thoughts.
Snippet from "Politics and the English Language".

Thank you to Guy Kawasaki, who recently posted this essay by George Orwell.
