"The conductor Leonard Bernstein was once asked, 'What is the most difficult instrument to play?'
'Second Violin,' he replied, 'Because everyone wants to be first violinist.'
Of course the first violin gets to play more interesting parts and commands more attention. But as Bernstein went on to explain,
'It's hard to find someone who wants to play second violin and to do so with the same enthusiasm. But without the second violin, there is no harmony.' "
-- Matt Redman in The Heart of Worship
So it is with all of life. It's hard to find someone who wants to take a secondary task and do so with the same enthusiasm. "But without the second violin, there is no harmony."
