Stick to the point

子曰:「辭,達而已矣!」
Confucius said: “As long as the words you use are enough to communicate your meaning, that’s enough.”

A useful reminder to stick to the point when speaking or writing. More often than not, fancy words and rhetorical flushes serve to obscure your meaning rather than illuminate it.
