    Strive for clarity. And remember that your readers only know what you tell them. Don't assume that they know anything that you don't tell them. (You always know what you mean, but others do not unless you speak (or write) clearly.)

    writing is not only about getting across a written message. The unsaid words are sometimes louder than the written ones. Their value lies precisely in their not being spoken...

    True, but we have to know what a person said in order to know what he didn't say.
