Dangerous not is the man who wields shimmering swords or carry deadly guns. Dangerous are the men who can stir up emotions, sway the hearts of men, provoke men to action, through speech or the written word. These are the ones who [could] make a difference in the world, or bring the world to its knees.
English author, Edward Bulwer-Lytton was only partly correct when he coined the term ‘The pen is mightier than the sword’. It’s the minds behind the hand – that wields the pen – that turns it into a weapon of precision which cuts right into the heart.
I need to get me some dangerous.
P.S. This entry was inspired during a read written by author Paulo Coelho. My soul is stirred. One day I would like to meet this remarkable individual in person and shake his hand.
