of all the weapons of destruction that man could invent, the most terrible-and the most powerful-was the word. Daggers and spears left traces of blood; arrows could be seen at a distance. Poisons were detected in the end and avoided. But the word managed to destroy without leaving clues. - Paulo Coelho
It lies here deep in the heart, the small chest of painSharp words like daggers placed it hereTo fill with hurtIn filling it grew heavy and drug me downFor to not feel is not to liveUntil I rest at last in dirtThe worst of you got the best of me… - Neil Leckman
On the heights, all paths are paved with daggers.
There's daggers in men's smiles. - William Shakespeare
Words can mean nothing, or be daggers in someone's heart. Choose them wisely. - Christian Coma (CC)
I’ve seen daggers pierce the chest,Children dying in the road,Crawling things hooked and baited,Rapists bound and then castrated,Villains singed in public square.Yet none these sights did make me cringeLike when my Love cut all her hair. - Roman Payne
The daggers of silence last longer than anything ever spoken. - Shannon L. Alder
