Pen is Mightier than the Sword (Educational, Essay)
The English words :
“The Pen is mightier than the Sword”
were first written by a novelist Edward Bulwer in 1839 in his historical play Cardinal Richelieu. This saying quickly gained currency by the 1840s.
The pen is usually linked with the writing. It helps the writer to record his thoughts on a piece of paper. Sword is a weapon used forcefully against someone. A sword can be wielded well only by those who are physically fit. But words can flow from pen of even a feeble man. If he is a good writer, he can use the words to their desired effect. Many great writers had inspired revolutions. The French Revolution for example was the result of writings of great French writers like Rousseau.
Writing can evoke different emotions like love, hatred and sympathy etc. It is something that is to be regarded with awe and respects. The power of pen is enormously larger than the sword. What a sharp-edged sword can’t achieve can be achieved with the help of minute tip of a pen !
For instance, writing has created peace during wars and wars during piece. Writing has made the whole world to unite against evil. That is the power of pen !
A fight impacts two or more people, a war can impact thousands of peoples…….But a book written by a pen can shake the whole world. A book can turn dark into speech, week into powerful and poor into rich.
In the last, I conclude that thinking and writing have more influence on people and events than the use of power or violence.
