Why is it the bluntest words make the sharpest points?
Because a cut with a dull blade hurts worse then one on a sharp one…
Ah, but a dull blade doth not go as deep as the sharp.
Thy pen is mightier than the sword.
And the tongue can be sharper then the sword.
Yet the sword can cut the tongue out.
Paradox haunts me through thick and thin,
but none so strange as this paradox of point and pen.
