Jascha Heifetz quote

"I occasionally play works by contemporary composers and for two reasons: First, to discourage the composer from writing any more and, secondly, to remind myself how much I appreciate Beethoven." - Jascha Heifetz, violinist  
I'm pretty sure Heifetz said this half-jestingly. The serious half is what bothers me, although I might have said this myself.

  1. Nice quote, but in my opinion it sounds a bit.. rude.
