Hayworth: Do you think there is a connection between great gifts and great suffering?

Klemperer: (reciting Ecclesiastes I. 14-18)

I have seen all the works that are done under the sun; and behold, all is vanity and vexation.

That which is crooked cannot be made straight; and that which is wanting cannot be numbered.

I communed with min own heart, saying, Lo, I am come to regret estate, and have forgotten more wisdom than all they that have been before me in Jerusalem:yea, my heart had great experience of wisdom and knowledge. And I gave my heart to know wisdom, and to know madness and folly: I perceived that this is also vexation of spirit.

For in much wisdom is much grief; and he that increaseth knowledge increaseth grief.
