Foundation Must Be Solid As A Rock

There is a reason why the historic Rock of Gibraltar has often been quoted in books and essays. It forms part of a small island off the coast of Spain and yet it has never left British hands after all these years. They say that the rock is unshakeable. Just you try moving it. Perhaps though, the same cannot be entirely said for the house foundation. And yet that can be overcome too. One of the reasons why Gibraltar remains virtually untouchable could have something to do with those who jealously guard it.

Over a long period of time, they have been resilient and resourceful, on many occasions perhaps, resorting to ingenious means to maintain their stranglehold on this single rock. You wonder. What could have been so important about such a small piece of land? Well, for one thing, you have to consider its strategic importance. And it has led to the downfall of many a tyrant who dared to press his hand on the matter.

Try pressing your hand on your own interior walls someday and you might discover that it is indeed potentially shakable. Apply just a little bit more force and then see what happens next. Possibly too disastrous to contemplate. The fact of the matter remains that this could have little to do with the actual wall itself. The wall is not of an inferior construction. The wall’s vulnerability has something to do with the very foundations of the house.
