Sometimes the more we talk about love, the less sense it makes. Okay, most times. #valentinesday2014 #lovelessons

45 Ways to Avoid Using the Word 'Very'

"Substitute ‘damn’ every time you're inclined to write 'very;' your editor will delete it and the writing will be just as it should be."

Mark Twain

"'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."

  Florence King

"So avoid using the word 'very' because it’s lazy. A man is not 'very' tired, he is 'exhausted.' Don't use 'very sad,' use 'morose.' Language was invented for one reason, boys - to woo women - and, in that endeavor, laziness will not do. It also won't do in your essays."

- N.H. Kleinbaum
