A Quote by George Orwell on clarity, enemies, insincerity, language, and words

The great enemy of clear language is insincerity. When there is a gap between one's real and one's declared aims, one turns, as it were, instinctively to long words and exhausted idioms, like a cuttlefish squirting out ink.

George Orwell (1903 - 1950)
