Thought of the Day - Reasonable

Thought of the Day

On a motorway in North West England, the central reservation suddenly widens. In the middle of this unexpected expanse stands a farmhouse. When they were building the road, the authorities offered the owner money to move. Then they used legal threats. He wouldn't go. In the end, they just laid the tarmac around the house. Once, it stood in a rural idyll. Now six lanes of traffic hurtle past day and night. It is no place to live. Remember; there are times when we all should stand our ground and times when we are wiser to be reasonable.
