    My interpretation is that even though a martyr dies for a just cause, over the years we forget about them. A writer, however, will live forever because his words are in print; they will live on through their words.

    It means that The written word of the scholar will be more remembered that a martyr

    It means... Someone who writes to make changes in the world can always be read for generations to come but those who choose to die as a martyr will just die and be forgotten---unless someone WRITES about the martyr. But then the martyr is still dead and the writing that tells about them will still be "alive" or able to be read!

    It's another way of saying the pen is mightier than the sword.
