The Pen is Mightier than the Sword

Today is the anniversary of the birth of two great men, William Shakespeare and Lester Bowles Pearson. Both Shakespeare and Pearson changed the world - using a pen.

Shakespeare is the greatest writer in English literature. He added over a thousand new words to the English language and his plays have been translated into every major living language.

Pearson was a diplomat and a politician. He won the Nobel Peace Prize.
