because louder is not equal to or greater than mightier.
Its like the hare and the tortoise. The hare (sword/actions) talks a lot of smack, but at the end of the day, the tortoise (pen/words) gets things
done, wins the race.
Also, an action is done in an instant, it is but a fleeting moment. Words on the other hand continue to exist after they are written, or sometimes
even just when spoken they last through oral tradition passed down through generations, like the songs of the Native Americans that tell their
history. But words, especially written, with "the pen", last thousands of years.
The secret of history: What actions are taken are not nearly as important as what was written about those actions. Those written words are what will
travel through time. The words are what people will pay attention to throughout the ages, as the actions themselves have dissapeared in the instant
they were performed. The only thing left behind other than words are the mark the actions made, physically, which are but a shadow of the action
taken. For example,we know the nose of the Sphinx is broken off. We see the mark of some action taken, either natural or artificial, but without some
words to record the event, we have but a shadow to speculate upon. Like someone making shadow figures on the wall and we can only look at the
silhouette and guess at what figure they are trying to emulate.
