"...general foundations of all good style: 1) to express what one feels exactly as it is felt - clearly, if it is clear; obscurely, if obscure; confusedly, if confused - and 2) to understand that grammar is an instrument and not a law.

...let grammar rule the man who doesn't know how to think what he feels. Let it serve those who are in command when they express themselves. It is told of Sigismund, King of Rome, that when someone pointed out a grammatical mistake he had made in a speech, he answered, 'I am King of Rome, and above all grammar.' And he went down in history as Sigismund super-grammatican. A marvelous symbol! Every man who knows how to say what he has to say is, in his way, King of Rome. The title is royal, and the reason for it is imperial."

From The Book of Disquiet by Fernando Pessoa
