Simplicity of style has reference to the choice of simple words and
their unaffected presentation. Simple words should always be used in

strong, terse, vigorous, the language of the fireside, street, market and
farm. It is this style which characterizes the Bible and many of the
great English classics such as the "Pilgrim's Progress," "Robinson
Crusoe," and "Gulliver's Travels."
