Quotation – July 27, 2012

I threw the thesaurus out years ago.  I found that every time you look up a word, if you want some word and you can think of an approximately close synonym for it and look it up, you only get cliche usages.  It’s much better to use a big dictionary and look up derivations and definitions of various usages of a different word.
