Goto next slide#4: Utile Dulci

What It Means:

"the useful with the agreeable"

Where It Comes From:

In Ars Poetica, Horace offered this advice:

"He who joins the useful with the agreeable, wins every vote, by delighting and at the same time instructing the reader."

In other words, the successful poet – or more broadly, communicator – combines the edifying with the enjoyable, turns business into pleasure.
