When Promulgating...

Yesterday I was trying to dig up an old quote that I could sort-of recall to leave in a comment over at Tig's place. Given that it took so much digging I figured I should post it so that I can find it again next time :-)

See if you can translate it without looking at the extended entry for the solution :-)

When Promulgating Your Esoteric Cogitations

When promulgating your esoteric cogitations and articulating your amicable and philosophical observations beware of platitudinous ponderosity, and let your conversational communications possess a clarified conciseness and a compact comprehensibleness without coalescent consistency or a concatenated cogency.

Eschew all conglomerations of flatulent garrulity, jejune babblement and asinine affectations and let your extemporaneous descantings have a voracious vivacity without rodomontade sagacity.

In other words, speak briefly, say what you mean, mean what you say, and above all don't use big words.

I am so confused.
