• The Wind and the Sun

stronger. Suddenly they saw a traveller coming down the
road, and the Sun said: "I see a way to decide our dispute.
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. Kindness
effects more than severity.
