Writers are people who take isolated words & craft them into memorable phrases, stories, poems & plays. Who are the writers who make your heart sing? What is the magic ingredient?
Because I have been able to read and write (over the years) in two languages, I believe that the ability to translate dramatically increases ones love of words, their purest meanings and the truest form of communication from an author to the reader.
Having said that, however, I would say unequivocally, that Solomon, the son of David, the King of Israel is one of the most articulate writers of all time. The “magic” of his words are in his honesty.
