Playing Second Fiddle

A conductor of an orchestra was once asked which musical instrument he considered the most difficult to play.

After a moment’s thought, he gave a rather surprising answer:-

“Second Fiddle,” he replied, “I can get plenty of first violinists, but  to find one who can play second fiddle with enthusiasm – that’s a problem. And if we have no second fiddle, we have no harmony.”

I think that that is a very comforting thought.

All of us are not meant to be leaders in life, and what a strange imbalanced world it would be if we were!

Where would we be without all those who supply the harmony in the background?

We all have our part to play, great or small, and each one is important, and very much needed.


With many peaceful blessings
