The Wind and the Sun

Long, long ago, the wind and the sun were talking to each other.

They could not decide who was stronger than the other. To answer the question, they agreed to try something.

Watching a passing traveller, they decided to see which of them could take off the man’s coat first.

The wind began to blow a cold and powerful wind. But the stronger the wind blew, the tighter the man held on to his coat.

Next, it was the sun’s turn. Coming out from behind the clouds, the sun shone its warm, comfortable light down on the traveller.

The traveller felt the gentle warmth on his shoulders. Finally, he sat down and took off his coat.

It was clear that the sun had won.

Moral of the Story: Kindness can be stronger than harshness.
