Hi this is Tutor Nick P and this is Proverbs 12. The proverb today is the pen is mightier than
the sword. You might have heard this before. This is
a very famous proverb. It comes up every now and then. Let's take a look at the note.
This proverb expresses the idea that writing especially good writing with a
good message is stronger than a military force or someone that is opposing you
with physical violence. You know they might been proved before with like
Gandhi or Martin Luther King I think they helped to prove that idea. All right let's take a look at
the first example. Example number one I chose to become a writer because I believe the pen is mightier than the sword. I believe
I can influence and change the mind of people more through my writing than
anything else. Okay good. Let's look at the second example here. Stalin
is quoted as saying ideas are more powerful than guns, we wouldn't allow
them to have guns why should we let them have ideas. Remember I covered this quote in a previous video.
So here we see Stalin must believe the pen is mightier than the sword.
Because yeah that's, that's well you know when communists and socialists often
take over a country, they often take over the school system. The training so they
want to control everything. They want to control people's thinking. So this would
mean the pen is mightier than the sword at some point. Okay I hope you got it. I
hope was informative. Thank you for your time. Bye-bye.
