    The Wind and the Sun


Once the Wind and the Sun were arguing which one was the strongest of them both.

 Suddenly they saw a traveller coming down the road, and the Sun said: "I see a way to decide our argument.

Whichever of us can cause that traveller to take off his cloak shall be regarded as the stronger. You begin."

 So the Sun retired behind a cloud, and the Wind began to blow as hard as it could upon the traveller.

 But the harder he blew the more closely did the traveller wrap his cloak round him, till at last the Wind had to give up in despair.

 Then the Sun came out and shone in all his glory upon the traveller, who soon found it too hot to walk with his cloak on.

Moral: Kindness effects more than severity.
