Violinist Quotations

The violinist must possess the poet's gift of piercing the protective hide which grows on propagandists, stockbrokers and slave traders, to penetrate the deeper truth which lies within.
Yehudi Menuhin

The violinist is that peculiarly human phenomenon distilled to a rare potency - half tiger, half poet.
Yehudi Menuhin

Music with dinner is an insult both to the cook and the violinist.
Gilbert K. Chesterton

It is as absurd to say that a man can't love one woman all the time as it is to say that a violinist needs several violins to play the same piece of music.
Honore de Balzac

My father was a trained accountant, a BCom from Sydenham College and a self-taught violinist. In the 1920s, when he was in his teens, he heard a great violinist, Jascha Heifetz, and he was so inspired listening to him that he bought himself a violin, and with a little help from an Italian teacher, he learned to play it.
Zubin Mehta
