Ironically ‘WORDS’ is an anagram of ‘SWORD.’
History records an Assyrian Sage, Ahiqar, in 500BC coined a phrase in his early teachings,
“The word is mightier than the sword.”
Later, in 1839AD, English writer Edward Bulwer-Lytton lays claim to writing a line in his play ‘Richelieu: Or The Conspiracy’ “The PEN is mightier than the sword.”
No matter where the saying originated it will forever hold true. The written word is far more effective than violence as a tool for communicating one’s point of view.
Literary text has the power to influence, change or reinforce our perceptions of our world.
Beware though. All that is written is not true so again, ironically, comradery or conflict arises.
