Edward G. Bulwer says, “The pen is mightier than the sword.” In other words, a person’s words can cause people to change their opinions on a large scale whereas a sword can only change a person’s opinion by force, which often only results in the person’s death.

Lee consistently shows a pure sensibility, in and out of work, that draws people towards her. Is this not reason enough?
