”The pen is mightier than the sword”
I like the idea that to convince people with ideas and words is more effective than trying to force people to do what you want. This is where wordsmiths like me work every day.
In terms of effectiveness, I can tell that writing would not always work but in the long run, it eventually will. Thanks to its subtlety.
Words – if used properly and tactfully – can bring us myriad unknown potentials in social life. Now you know why governments always dread strong and independent press, simply because they can also threaten people involved in governance activities.
