Heifetz on the state of the world...

111

Jascha Heifetz"The world is sick - you realise how sick when you hear machine guns while playing the violin at a concert in China, when you see the mobs in India, the drab lines of idle men in Europe, listen to the appeals for help from men of musical talent in this country... We need a doctor, many doctors, and, whether rightly or wrongly, the world thinks the man who is President of the United States is in the best position to prescribe."

-- Jascha Heifetz, 1932
