Winston Churchill

Winston Churchill didn’t end a sentence with a preposition when he said: “This is the sort of bloody nonsense up with which I will not put.”

By following one rule, Churchill breaks another rule (obfuscation).  Because it is so convoluted, this sentence has become famous.  It illustrates the Smith & Wilhelm contention that:

“Some errors might be more a cause for celebration than concern, for errors are often a signal of growth.”

(Smith & Wilhelm 58)
