‘The pen is mightier than the sword…’ coined by Edward Bulwer-Lytton in 1839 for his play ‘Richelieu’
How many many people today pick up the pen & write something powerful, beautiful, moving, life changing? Today a hand written letter or note is a rarity, making the one you do receive all the more special & precious; yours to keep for life & maybe to pass on.
Anyone can do it, but too few do. The pen is a wonderful, immediate tool which has the ability to capture our unique creative thoughts & feelings of a single time that will one day be the distant past.
‘Go on doing with your pen what in other times was done with the sword.’ Thomas Jefferson (1796).
