The North Wind and the Sun
One morning, the North Wind and the Sun saw a horseman wearing a new cloak. “That young man looks very pleased with his new cloak,” said the North Wind. “But I can easily blow it off his back if I want to.” “I don’t think you can,” said the Sun. “Well, let’s have a game. We both try to do it, you go first.”
The North Wind began to blow and blow and blow. As a result, People outdoors chased after their hats. Leaves fell down everywhere. Animals were frightened. Ships sank into the sea. The North Wind blew with all his might, but it was no use, because the horseman just pulled his cloak more tightly around him.
“A-ha, now its my turn,” cried the Sun. When the Sun gave out his gentle heat, insects hummed and flowers bloomed. Birds began to sing, dogs lay down to sleep and people came out to gossip. The horseman felt so hot that he kept sweating. When he came to a river, he took off his clothes and jumped in for a swim.
So the Sun won the game. The Sun was able to achieve the goal by warmth and gentleness what the North Wind in all his strength and fury could not to.
