“The pen is mightier than the sword.” is an old and classic adage by English author Edward Bulwer-Lytton. As interpreted by some, words and writings are a more effective tool than direct violence. Plenty of notable figures in history use their words and writings to make a change. Carl E. Moyler’s On Freedom and Revolt mentions two influential figures, namely Martin Luther King, Jr. and Albert Camus, who are noted for their non-violent revolt. They are known for their books and wisdom that sparked inspiration, hope, and dreams in many people. They have touched the lives of people, whether they are the affected sector or not.
