Word juggling

Eloquence is sometimes mistaken as the skill of being able to juggle complex sentence structures and complicated words.

Which leads to the even worse misconception that the more complex your speech, the more eloquent you would be.

Far from it.

Eloquence is the skill of using the right words at the right time.

More often than not that means finding simple words to describe complex things rather than complex words to describe simple things.
