    Hell naw, sword would tear a brotha up...

    A dude might be intelligent with his pen, but not mighty with his pen.

    I was just being silly, I agree, it makes sense here is why, when someone says something to you over the phone let's say, you might let that fly by you because you either aren't paying attention or are distracted by what you are gonna say next, but if that person mails you a letter, then you are obligated to read the letter to yourself before rationally giving a reply.

    I either hit the nail on the head or I hit my head too many times...

    It's supposed to be, "the pun is mightier than the word."

    Seriously, force can only prevail for a short time. Look at Alexander, Caeser, Napolean, Hitler. All of those empires fell in the end.

    On the other hand, Socrates, Locke, Jefferson, Paine, Lao Tzu and many other writers are still influential.

    no, the pen will never last, STONE is mightier thant he pen AND sword. if anything is to ever happen to us, all of this is GONE. we should record like the ancients did, so they wont be so stumped in the future as to how we made things and who we were. ..

    Look what Karl Marx accomplished with his pen. . .

    Look what Hitler accomplished with his "sword"

    I'd say Marx was slightly more successful
