A sword is a long spearpoint without the stick. The spear too is mightier than the sword.
“What’s a pen?”
Zog, ya dang fool, you can’t stone first and ask questions later.
The Boulder Font is mightier than the pen.
Sticks and stones may break my bones but words can never hurt me.
The pen is mightier than the sword as long as you keep away from the pointy end of the sword.
For that matter, what’s a “pen”?
“The pen is mightier than the sword….. but a huge boulder has them both beat.”
Bit like a pen, only longer and sharper …
Drop first, ask later.
Amazing – Cave Men who can read.
know what an n-word, c-word, b-word, is! Wonder what the s-word is?!?
Only if one receives enough education to see the difference in the results.
Sean Connery had a problem with the s-word when he was on jeopardy!
The S Word is something you can’t say in polite company and say “Shoot” or “Shucks” instead. And there was a time when “Sucks” was also an S Word but is now rather common and acceptable when referring to something negative.
The pen is mightier than the sword, but that rock is boulder than both.
“You put down your rock and I’ll put down my sword…”
Kind of “Frazzy” today.
Rock, paper, sword?
I can’t tell you what the “S” word is. Like the “N” word or the “F” word it;‘s just assumed everyone knows what word is being referenced because it’s not polite or acceptable to use the actual word.
Don’t bring gravel to a boulder fight.
Sword not invented yet. He meant S Word.
This attitude is still common today!
Only if the pen is signing a contract on the sword-ers life.
In theory, I can write a tract that can gin up a bigger angry mob than you can force into battle at sword point.
Though a printing press would expedite the process immensely.
I agree with the philosophical principle that the pen can be mightier than the sword. But I will also concede the practical point that the sword can speak louder at any given moment.
Its amazing how straight the edge of that cliff is
TRUTH OF THE LEGEND—-When King Arthur pulled the Sword out of the STone,all he got was a hernia.
A pen can be mighty. Joe Pesci did real damage to a guy in Casino.
The Pen Is Mightier Than the Sword
“The pen is mightier than the sword” is a metonymic adage, created by English author Edward Bulwer-Lytton in 1839, indicating that the written word is more effective than violence as a tool for communicating a point. In some interpretations, written communication can refer to administrative power or an independent news media.
“Let’s try a pen with ink… just the pen don’t stop a damn thing!”
Just wait until SNL is invented.
In this case it would seem the sword (boulder) is mightier? Or, mighty merely in longevity?
After the swords work is done, the pen’s work still remains.
This is just like BC; the inventions are way ahead of its time.
The grass withers, the flower fades, but the word of the Lord endures forever.
