Why I chose to be known as "The Pen"

The pen is always mightier than any "sword" in that it can level or build up nations without spilling anything other than maybe a little ink.

My goal has always been to someday find the cohesiveness of words in order to give hope; that such hope will move people to reclaim their liberty and integrity of self.

Peace and Love always.

No offense

No offense my dear friend but you might be mistaken about the quote "The Pen is mightier than the Sword". Because in reality The Pen has killed more people than all other weapons combined. One stroke of the pen in approval for war can kill millions.

If I disappear from a discussion please forgive me. My 24-7 business requires me to split mid-sentence to serve them. I am not ducking out, I will be back later to catch up.

Hosea 4:6 My people are destroyed for lack of knowledge.

The pen and the press have saved many lives.

Don't feed the pandas. Ever.

To a point

The very same work also killed countless people over the last 2000 years in the name of righteousness.

My words were literal...

as well as hopeful.

Yes, the pen is and has been mightier than the sword for evil and cruel-intentioned purposes, but it will and must be used as a means of inspiration and hope if it is to truly by its messages disavow the intentions and usurpations others may have used it for.

You are right of course

It is very seldom used as it should be. Thanks man.

And that is why I might change my name to Ink Stain

For the hand that wields the pen....

can still be made to look like an oaf.

BEHOLD THE POWER OF THE SMUDGE!

There is nothing strange about having a bar of soap in your right pocket, it's just what's happening.

Here's some fun for gradeschool kids...

Write 'The penis mightier than the sword' on the chalkboard. When the teacher comes in and asks who wrote it stand up and proudly claim responsibility for passing on this time-worn knowledge.

heh heh heh...

Don't feed the pandas. Ever.

Prior...

I was Liberty Poet...but The Pen encompasses poetry as well, since it is done with a "pen".

The "Pen"

is an awesome screen name. The pen is mightier than the sword, and even when we/I think we/I know this, it is still mightier than we can imagine.

language and words. A great example of something that is taken for granted at best or completely overlooked at worst. Language, it's words, once spoken they have impact. When captured by ink on paper then it gets really serious.

Black ink on white paper can free a people or serve a man to the executioner.

The Pen

The pen is said mightier than the sword,
while the winners of wars write history.
Between those who do and those who record,
by far would I rather a doer be.

A proficient swordsman will never yield.
To attack is safer than to defend.
Nor can the pen be well used as a shield.
Quickness of wit or wrist wins in the end.

So wield your pen now, as a fencer might,
using skillful lines to parry and thrust,
and thus endeavor to fight the good fight,
with the words of truth, for the cause that’s just.

For once you’ve learned to use your pen with skill,
you’ll never need to draw a sword to kill.
