"In the parlour of an old farmhouse there was an antique grandfather clock. For more than a 150 years, it had never ceased ticking faithfully.
Every morning at daybreak the first thing the farmer would do,
was visiting the clock to be sure it was working well.
Now, it happened one morning, the clock began to speak:
"For more then one and half century I have been working without stopping and keeping the perfect time. Now I am tired: don't I deserve to take a rest and stop ticking?"
"Your complaint is unjustified, my good clock ", the shrewd farmer replied, "for you are forgetting that between each tick you have a second of rest."
After a moment's thought,
the clock began to work again as usual.
