I love this pen holder. It is beautiful on any desk and doesn't look cheap! The detail is exquisite and looks like real pens. Great gift for father's day or your boss.
Assyrian sage Ahiqar, who reputedly lived during the early 7th century BC, coined the first known version of this phrase. The attribution to the playwright is correct. Mohammed said "the ink of the scholar is holier than the blood of the martyr," which may have a similar intent, but was certainly not the first expression of this idea.
This is a quotation from the Prophet Muhammad stolen by an orientalist.
