Sloppy language and sloppy ways go together

"Sloppy language and sloppy ways go together. Those who are truly educated have learned more than sciences, the humanities, law, engineering, and the arts. They carry with them a certain polish that marks them as loving the better qualities of life, a culture that adds luster to the mundane world of which they are a part, a patina that puts a quiet glow on what otherwise might be base metal."

- Gordon B. Hinckley, Stand A Little Taller, p. 78
