The applauds we receive...
During a rehearsal of Beethoven’s Ninth symphony the members of the orchestra were so overwhelmingly moved by the conducting of Arturo Toscanini that they rose as one man and applauded him. When the spontaneous cheering had subsided Toscanini turned to his men, tears glistening in his eyes.
“Please….. Please! Don’t do this!” he said in a pathetic voice.
“You see, gentlemen, it isn’t me you should applaud. It’s Beethoven!”
Sometimes the applauds we receive, truly belong to someone else…
We just happen to be there that time to receive it, but never belongs….
Our scientific power has outrun our spiritual power.
We have guided missiles and misguided men.
