THE PEN IS MIGHTIER THAN THE SWORD

A pen helps the writer to record his thoughts on paper. Words rep­resent the mental force. Words are capable of evoking or stirring up emotions. Emotions make people do anything.

A sword can be wielded well only by those, who are physically fit. But words can flow from the pen of a very feeble man. If he is a good writer or an orator, he can use the words to their desired effect. Many great writers had inspired revolutions. Writings can evoke different emotions as love, hatred, sympathy etc. It is something that is to be regarded with awe and respect. Hence pen is considered to be a mightier device than the sword.
