Dead Poets society and 'very' - John Keating, Dead Poet’s Society

This quote was added by seanearlyaug
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.
