    Mark Twain [Samuel Langhorne Clemens] (1835–1910)

    Arianna Stassinopoulos (b. 1950)

It is the style of all those writers whose tendency is to make their language convey more than they mean or more than they feel, it is the style of most artists and all humbugs.
    Cyril Connolly (1903–1974)
