The Wind and The Sun

A long time ago, the Sun and the North Wind would argue over who was the greatest power in the universe. The Sun would say: "I am the most powerful because I can warm the whole world!" But the North wind argued, "I am the most powerful because I can blow mighty ships at sea!" "I say we settle this once and for all," said the Sun. And so the Sun shined with all its might and the North Wind blew as hard as it could but neither could tell who was stronger because it was too bright and windy for either one to see. Together they agreed they would have to settle it with a test. Quickly they looked around for something to test their strength on. Below them was a man traveling along the road through the mountains. He was wearing a heavy jacket, which he'd buttoned up tightly. The Sun and the North Wind decided the winner would be the first one who could get the traveling man to take his jacket off. The North Wind tried his power first, blowing with all his might down the road. But the stronger he blew his cold and bellowing winds, the tighter the shivering man held his jacket around his body. At last, exhausted, the North Wind gave up. "Ok, I may have not been able to make him take off that jacket," said the North Wind, "but what makes you think you can do any better? If I couldn't do it, no one can!" "We'll see about that!" said the Sun. The Sun beamed a friendly smile down at the traveling man, shining on him with his light and warmth. The traveling man immediately took off his jacket and basked in the warm sunlight. The traveler looked up at the sun and smiled at the beautiful weather the sun had provided. And so the Sun taught the North Wind an important lesson: "Always be kind and warm to others."
