“The thinker is preeminently a person who sees what others do not. The novelty of what he or she says, its character as a sort of revelation, the charm that attaches to it, all comes from the fact that he or she sees. The thinker seems to be head and shoulders above the crowd, or walking on the ridgeway while others are walking at the bottom. Independence is the word which describes the moral aspect of this capacity for vision.”
King Solomon was a thinker. He sought meaning in all things. He could put ideas together and come up with sensible conclusions. He loved the “stuff of creation” and was not afraid to search out the knowledge of it. Solomon, like most thinkers, was a journaler, a writer. He created 3,000 proverbs and over 1,000 songs about all types of subjects from people to plants to birds and fish. People came from all around to hear his wisdom, to be in the presence of a brain.
