The Wind and The Sun
The wind and the sun decided to have a bet. Thewind knew that the sun had no strength and believedthat he could win. “I’m the best in the world.” “Mr. Wind, why don’t you and I find out who is thestronger one.”
Just then a traveler was walking by. “Why don’t wefind out who could first take off that man’s jacket.” The sun confidently suggested. “Fine.”
The wind confidently, with all his strength began to blow. Just then the clear blue sky and thesun was no where to be seen and only the wind began to blow. The traveler tucked his jacket incloser and said, “Why is it so cold all of a sudden?” The stronger the wind blew, the travelerpulled his jacket closer and closer to him.
“Whew, I’m so cold where has the sun gone to? If this keeps up, I’m going to fly off.” Thetraveler stopped and tucked in his jacket even more.
The sun arrived with a big smile on his face. “Now it is my turn.” The sun beamed his warmsunlight. The exhausted wind stepped back.
The traveler wiped his sweat and said, “Just a little while ago, the wind was blowing stronglyhow is it all of a sudden, the sun is shining down.” The traveler took off his jacket and threw itdown.
The sun gave a big smile and said, “Wind, there are something in his world that can’t be doneby strength alone.” The boastful wind was so embarrassed that he ran off.
