Nugget #88 -- The Right Word

The right word will do things a good word won't. It will 
say something about the character of the person saying or 
thinking it. It will bring with it the baggage of years of 
cultural context to say more than your mere word count ever 
could. It will sing rather than simply hum. It will make an 
idea stick to the brain rather than just "get the job done."
