The Pen is mightier than the Sword

Individuals view and handle stress different ways than most folks attempt. In English class we read the book The Book Thief by: Markus Zusak. Many events took place such as the Germany bombings, and World War II the main character Liesel was caught in these terrible events also showed us to make tragedies not so scary. A quote from the book that stands out is “The pen is mightier than the sword” meaning to me that finding a way to address stress like Liesel did is better than using violence to solve problems, for example certain individuals will turn to something bad for the person or can cause harm. Ways that most folks view ways to handle stress are mostly close to Liesel for example expressing themselves in writing, which is another was to deal with stress by expressing the topic versus just bottling there problems while setting your problems aside.
