To whom much is given...

Schnitzler, Professor Bernardhi Acts 1-3 -- Drama as Literature (EL 250)

ADLER. Narurally. Anyone who works and achieves. Many enemies-much honour. Bernhardi really can't complain. Practice in the highest circles and in certain others, where, fortunately, the emoluments are higher-Professor-Director of the Elizabeth Institue-

KURT. Well, who should it be if not he? He's had enough fights on behalf of the Institute.

I found this passage to be interesting. These Alder and Kurt talk about how Prof. Bernhardi has had to deal with squabbles in the past. What they're are saying is that anyone who tries to make it to the top, is going to have struggles, especially from the people who are at the bottom. There is always persecution when you are better then someone else. One of life's most important lessons is to not let others bring you down. Keep working as hard as you can and you will reach your goals. The problem for Bernhardi is that he happens to be Jewish as well.
