which bears a sword

      When somebody steps on your toes, a riot of words can appear out of nowhere. Since some of them are probably dangerous, it might be a good idea to keep the whole crowd inside until things calm down.   

“There is a word/Which bears a sword/Can pierce an armed man. . . .” Emily Dickinson

“There is one who speaks rashly, like the thrusts of a sword, but the tongue of the wise brings healing.” Proverbs 12:18
