[in brief] thought for the day

‘There’s an east wind coming, Watson.’

‘I think not, Holmes. It’s very warm.’

‘Good old Watson! You are the one fixed point in a changing age. There’s an east wind coming, all the same, such a wind as never blew on England yet. It will be cold and bitter, Watson and a good many of us will wither before its blast. But it’s G-d’s own wind, none the less and a cleaner, better, stronger land will lie in the sunshine when the storm has cleared.’

[To those who think they may ride roughshod over our traditions, our culture,our way of life and who presume on our good-nature, you just do not understand with whom it is you are dealing.]
