It is an old observation that the best writer sometimes disregard the rules of rhetoric. When they do so, however, the reader will usually find in the sentence some compensating merit, attained at the cost of the violation. Unless he is certain of doing as well, he will probably do best to follow the rules.He scorned the vague, the tame, the colorless, the irresolute. He felt it was worse to be irresolute than to be wrong. "If you don't know how to pronounce a word, say it loud!" Why compound ignorance with inaudibility? Why run and hide?To me, it still seems to maintain its original poise, standing, in a drafty time, erect, resolute, and assured. I still find the Strunkian wisdom a comfort, the Strunkian humor a delight, and the Strunkian attitude toward right-and-wrong a blessing undisguised.
