Active voice

From The Elements of Style, William Strunk, Jr., Via

The active voice is usually more direct and vigorous than the passive:

 I shall always remember my first visit to Boston.

This is much better than

 My first visit to Boston will always be remembered by me.

 The latter sentence is less direct, less bold, and less concise.
