The pen is mightier than the sword
About: Wikipedia reference to the quote
True, This! --
Beneath the rule of men entirely great,
The pen is mightier than the sword. Behold
The arch-enchanters wand! -- itself a nothing! --
But taking sorcery from the master-hand
To paralyse the Cæsars, and to strike
The loud earth breathless! -- Take away the sword --
States can be saved without it!
