i believe that it is neither the pen nor the sword which is mightier, because its is the wielder of the sword or the pen who is mightier as without the wielder, the sword and the pen are mere objects. This slogan is often said by the reverse which is the pen is mightier than the sword. I believe I can disagree with the first answer. In the overall view of history the latter one has proven to be correct most often. This because the pen represents ideas. The sword represents violent action. Case in point: The American Revolution had its roots in the newspapers and published speeches & remarks of important figures of that time who advocated independence from the British Empire. Thus the pen began the action of the sword. Another example: before the Nazi Party took over Germany, Hitler had written his Mein Kampf which stated that German Jews were responsible for Germany's troubles. Later when Hitler held both the pen and the sword, the German Jews were punished by exile and concentration camps and death camps.

Had the messenger been able to read the note, he might have escaped. In this case, the pen directed the sword.
