Write it right
Power to the people
The plural of person, in most cases, is people. You would write, “Most people arrived at the conference before 9 a.m.”, not “Most persons …” There are some rare exceptions when “persons” wins out. For example, “missing persons,” “persons of interest” and “displaced persons.” There’s a tendency to use “people” for uncountable masses, and “persons” for the easily counted: “Of all the people in attendance, there are only two persons who really don’t belong here.” As a general rule, stick with people.
Say it right
It snuck right by you
Technically, “snuck” isn’t a word. Yes, it rolls off the tongue nicely: “Those bills just snuck up on me.” Remember: I sneak, you sneaked, they have sneaked, etc.
Spell it right
“All” are affected
It’s accidentally, not accidently or accidentaly. A mnemonic: Think “the accident affects all” in order to remember the “ally” at the end of the word.
Bore: one who has the power of speech but not the capacity for conversation. — Benjamin Disraeli
Many of life’s failures are people who did not realize how close they were to success when they gave up. — Thomas A. Edison
