N.H. Kleinbaum said that using ‘very’ is only for lazy people. We need to constantly improve and expand our vocabulary. Check out these useful words to avoid using ‘very’.
So avoid using the word ‘very’ because it’s lazy. A man is not very tired, he is exhausted. Don’t use very sad, use morose. Language was invented for one reason, boys – to woo women – and, in that endeavor, laziness will not do. It also won’t do in your essays. ~N.H. Kleinbaum
