    Given a particular sword, how many people do you think that sword has killed.

    Compare that with a pen, say the pen that Hitler used to order the extermination of Jews, or the pen used to order the bombs dropped on Japan.

    A sword can be used to sway people by force, but they will resent it and as soon as the sword is gone, they will backlash.

    A Pen can be used to win the hearts and minds of people, even when that pen is gone, its effect is still there.

    Slander can do more damage to your life, that you might not be able to recover from.

    I know a guy who was dating a girl for 4 years, though he was one year older than her. So when he turned 18 someone went after him cause she was underage.

    Now people call him a pedofile cause he's a registered sex offender.

    Of course if a sword kills you... that's it... but if a pen is lodged into your head......................

    Swords can hurt physically but the pen can write out worst nightmares,best kept secrets,and stain your reputation worse.

    Basically it just means words hurt more than physical violence
