Yesterday while I was working on the bedroom walls I had the radio on, listening to France Music. A man was talking about playing in a string quartet. He said more important than playing your part well (image of a show-off virtuoso) is to play so as to make the other person’s part coherent. This struck a chord with me. Were we to apply this in all relationships, it could be instrumental in creating harmony in the world. It is a question of setting ego aside and encouraging each one to do his/her best.
