words cut more than swords

words cut more than swords
var: words hurt more than swords
syn: the tongue is not steel but (yet) it cuts
слово – не стріла, а глибше ранить гірше болить від язика, як від ножа ≅ рана загоїться, але зле слово ніколи вода все сполоще, лиш злого слова ніколи вода все сполоще, крім лихого слова гостре словечко коле сердечко удар забувається, а слово пам'ятається wounds made by words are hard to heal
