Happy Birthday, Edward Bulwer-Lytton!

We ALL know the quote, very few know the author…

When I tell you the quote now, you’ll wonder why you never thought of asking who the author is! Wait for it…

‘the pen is mightier than the sword’

Hah! Gotcha!

So, go ahead, take up a pen and a piece of paper and write some.

A long time ago, I think I was ten, I bought a book by him too, called ‘The Last Days of Pompeii because it sounded nice. I never got around to reading it, however. I tried, but at the time it didn’t interest me…

Have you heard of him? Have you read any of his stuff?

Did you know who the quote was by ? 😉

  1. I’ve heard of the book Last Days of Pompeii, and a few years ago I was considering buying it, but then got divorced and everything went out the window. My reading style has changed since then, so I doubt I’ll get round to it in the next ten years. Didn’t realise it was him who came out with the quote though.
