I strongly agree.

The art of writing is the art of discovering what you believe.
Gustave Flaubert

Writing is the representation of language in a textual medium through the use of a set of signs or symbols (known as a writing system).[1] It is distinguished from illustration, such as cave drawing and painting, and non-symbolic preservation of language via non-textual media, such as magnetic tape audio. (An excerpt from http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Writing)

It’s an art of expressing yourself, saying your deepest thoughts, describing your feelings through words and making the readers feel how truly exciting, lonely, painful, happy and all other emotions we know of through the words you write at an exact moment of your life.

Perhaps I love writing because I’m a person who doesn’t say much of my thoughts, who doesn’t say what I feel, and who feels so alone in the world.

With all the things that is happening around me since I was a child, I learned to make my pen and paper my best friend in times of rejection and loneliness.

There was a saying, “The pen is mightier than the sword” – a metonymic adage coined by English author Edward Bulwer-Lytton in 1839 for his play Richelieu; Or the Conspiracy.[1][2] The play was about Cardinal Richelieu, though in the author’s words “license with dates and details… has been, though not unsparingly, indulged.”[1] The Cardinal‘s line in Act II, scene II, was more fully:[3]

True, This! —
Beneath the rule of men entirely great,
The pen is mightier than the sword. Behold
The arch-enchanters wand! — itself a nothing! —
But taking sorcery from the master-hand
To paralyse the Cæsars, and to strike
The loud earth breathless! — Take away the sword —States can be saved without it!

Even Jose Rizal, our National Hero used his pen and paper to fight against the Spaniards.
More blogs to come. 😀

    Braviary is a corruption of bravery and a combination
    of brave and aviary. Click here to see the entire collection from Kim, Khloe, Kris,
    Kylie and Kendall. Another fantastic shop is Victoria’s Secret’s online store, where several neon colored shoes,
    have become the ultimate buy.

    writing is really the best weapon in a war. unlike what is being used in battle it will last long..centuries and even a lifetime. An act of expressing one’s self to make the world understand what writers can see. Another way of relaying their message whether it may be thru stories or directly writing what’s on their mind. Some became famous because of writing, some are not but one thing they have in common…they know the best weapon in a battle..

    Keep writing my baby..soar high..people may not see what I can see in you but keep in mind that I’m more than what people can do.
