FABLE (REMED 4)
The Wind and the Sun
The Wind and the Sun were disputing which was the
stronger. Suddenly they saw a traveler coming down the
road, and the Sun said: ‘I see a way to decide our dispute.
Whichever of us can cause that traveler 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 traveler. But the harder he
blew the more closely did the traveler 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 traveler, who soon found it too hot to walk with his
Kindness effects more than severity.
