Long Speech on Pen is Mightier than Sword
Good morning respected Principal ma'am, teachers and my dear friends. Today I am here to put some light on the proverb Pen is Mightier than Sword. This proverb has a deep significance. It is easier to articulate thoughts on the proverb but this is something more deep and significant. Sword is definitely a powerful weapon. It gives immense power to the person holding it. But a pen gives much more power to the person holding it. One can enslave another person physically without their will with the help of a sword, but one can have a grasp on another person’s mind and heart with the help of a pen. If you win over someone with a sword, it will not last for long, maybe a day or two, but if you win over someone with the power of a pen, it will last a lifetime. If we look at our history, we can see the worthiness of the proverb. The glory of wars of the warriors or the kings of our history was there with them for a short period of time, but the teachings of the philosophers and the writers from our past are still there with us. Their teachings and sayings will live till eternity.
It has a long-lasting impact. The long-lasting emperorship is never built through swords. But the power of a pen can conquer the world. The writing of any great writer or philosopher can encourage people to fight against injustices and always stand for the truth. It also helps in influencing people to give a tough fight against corruption. Also, this quality of man to pen down his thoughts on the piece of paper has made him superior to the other creatures of the earth. Many animals are physically stronger than humans but no one can beat humans mentally - the way they think and the way they pen it down on paper. So, it's actually the pen and not the sword that makes man superior to other creatures of our mother Earth. Another aspect of this proverb is that the sword represents violence and the pen represents peace. No one has ever encouraged violence over peace. So, what one can achieve through language and thought can never be achieved through violence. You can win over anything with the power of peace and love. The power of coax is much more than the power of barbaric violence. Violence will lead you nowhere apart from death, jealousy and destruction whereas pen can lead you to construction, love and peace. It is always recommended to choose the path of peace over violence. Violence can stay for a month or a year or two but the power of words, the power of pen will live till eternity. So, the proverb is absolutely apt - The Pen is Mightier than Sword.
Short Speech on Pen is Mightier than the Sword
Let us take a look at the shorter version of the pen is mightier than the sword speech.
Good morning respected Principal Sir, Teachers and my dear friends. Today I have the honour to put some light on the proverb - Pen is Mightier than Sword. Through this proverb, a comparison between a mighty sword and a simple pen is established. The sword is bigger in size than the pen, but the pen can reach more people and achieve more than the sword. The power of writing is more than the power of hatred and violence of the sword. The pen represents the ideas and intelligence - with which the man has created the sword. The great stories of the swords from our history have reached us through a pen. If there had been no pen, there would not have been any story of success and glory of the sword. The world runs on thoughts and ideas. The positive ideas put forward through the pen can lead the sword in a positive direction whereas the negative thoughts can lead to a negative impact on the sword. In both ways, the pen is what drives the sword. So, a pen is mightier than a sword. The pen has much more power than the sword. In other words, the sword represents violence and the pen represents peace. The glory of violence is short-lived but the glory of peace lives till eternity. The kingdom won by the swords has come to an end somewhere but the thoughts and principles of our ancestors and great philosophers are still with us and will remain forever.

From our ancient times, the sword has been a very powerful weapon and has great significance in shaping our history. People appreciate its glory and success on the battlefield. But along with glory and success, the sword has stains of blood too. On the other hand, a small pen can change the thinking of the world with its power. A small pen can write down the glory of the mighty sword. The pen can settle disputes and wars when used wisely. Good writing can have a positive impact on our society. Positive thoughts and ideas bring positivity to society and can kill the negativity of violence. What can be achieved through peace (pen) can never be achieved through violence (sword). So, we should adopt the path of peace using a pen and not the path of violence using swords.
