Advice on Legal Writing by Dr. Seuss...

March 17, 2011

It has often been said
there’s so much to read,
you never can cram
all those words in your head.

So the writer who breeds
more words than he needs
is making a chore
for the reader who reads.

That’s why my belief is
the briefer the brief is,
the greater the sigh
of the reader’s relief is.
