Words are like Finely cut Diamonds

I don’t want to sound corny, but writing software is actually pretty similar to writing good poetry. If you’ve ever read good poetry, you would notice that what separates a great poet from a poser or a pretender is good poets economize with their words. They understand that words are like finely cut diamonds with many different shapes, and each shape brings to mind a wide range of emotions. A good poet is really is an emotion sculptor. He or she uses words to bring out an emotional state, which they then craft and manipulate to a desired state.

It’s kind of like listening to somebody playing a violin. Great violinists are able to play classics with such emotional honesty and urgency that you can’t help but feel transported. You really can’t, and this is because there is an artist in all of us. It doesn’t matter how technical your background is. It doesn’t matter how clueless you are about the arts. All of us are artists because all of us are emotional beings.
