More than ever, the adage "sticks and stones may break my bones but words will never hurt me" is proven an ironic one. In fact words are often much more painful than any physical damage could cause. It is reminiscent of Palestinians throwing rocks at tanks in Gaza, and relates to the adage "the pen is mightier than the sword".
