Why is a tongue mightier than a sword ?
A sword can only kill one person at a time.

Hurtful words kill three people at once.

The one about whom they are spoken,
the one who said them, and the one who listened. - B.R.

Your hearts know in silence the secrets of the days and the nights.


Yes, a mystical piece from the lebanese poet.
This is my interpretation. He is trying to say that the heart (where the soul resides) is superior to the brain. Feelings, hunches and Intuitions contain an element of truth. Human Intellect and Knowledge just have a certain limit.
It is similar to sufi thought that wisdom could be aquired by other means without reading heaps of books.

oracle! this sufi concept is quite intriguing...I was introduced to it by Shekh Mukhtar Maghraoui (sp.?). Does make you think doesn't it?!...the ability to feel something in a matter of few seconds what one quests for a life time through acquiring knowledge...

sorry bhai, believe it or not, out of everyone, I knew you wouldn't find it funny because it seems like something negative is implied there. Hell you would and should be offended. To compensate, I added "american love" there in an attempt to dodge a reply similar to yours. You are a damn Bangali man... be proud. When it comes to history, Bangalees are not students, we are teachers. We teach how it's done.

It's just I found your quote hilarious, so hilarity took over common sense. And thanks for laughing (or atleast implying) at my other stupid posts... it's really silly most of the time. One has to have some extra-ordinarily weird sense of humor to find most of those funny. You, Kabir bhai are not only smarter but will also live longer than majority here at BC. I think sense of humor should be the yardstick to measure intelligence and longevity.

Sometimes I wish I found some of you guy's sense of humor in my girlfriend. I tell her a joke, she goes "so what?" .. I mean, if it's not funny, pretend to laugh. I am a human being not a toxic waste dump. But such treatment gets to my head, I become persistent until she laughs, and when she does... i can't help but think to myself "those are some ugly a$$ teeth she got there" - all that effort down the toilet.

Bhai re, I hear you. My wife keeps doing this all the time. When I tell her something HILARIOUS, and I myself am rolling on the floor laughing, she keeps sitting and staring at me, saying "I didn't get it, that was a stupid joke". I then have to work hard to stop laughing, and then get up, and sit next to her, and say "I'm confused. I don't know whether to laugh at the joke or at you"!

On other days, when I say just something so silly that it's not even funny, she keeps laughing and says that was a good joke. I get even more confused then. Like, was it a good joke? Or is she making fun of me?
