    Lightbulb Rewriting a sentence

    Good day.
    How can i rewrite (simplify) the following sentence without loss of meaning?

    "All writers have borne testimony to the power of a speaker's eye in impressing an audience."

    It is difficult for me to translate correctly "to bear
    testimony to the power of".

    It was taken from "
    THE ART OF PUBLIC SPEAKING by
    Dale Carnegey
    "

    Thanks in advance, Vladimir Gureyev))

    "All writers have spoken of the power..." Does that help? (I doubt that the statement is true, by the way)
