What results when a great leader inspires hope, desire, and achievements in his or her followers? 

King Solomon authored a proverb about great leadership. I surmised how King Solomon may have answered a question posed by the Queen of Sheba three thousand years ago about leaders. The novel is a contemporary story to acquaint readers with ancient proverbs and wise sayings which are sitill applicable in today’s modern world.


“Great leaders will possess wisdom, good sense, and provide hope for their subjects. They will have the ability to express reality and instill within their followers an exhilarating feeling that it is good to be alive for both themselves and their posterity.The better their leader, the greater will be the achievements of his subjects.

A leader that draws out and frustrates hopes and desires will lose the morale of his followers that will result in a sickness that will end their desire to bear children, their tree of life.” Hope long drawn out is a sickness of the mind, but realized desire is a tree of life. (Proverb 13:12)
