The Oak Tree and the Reeds

The Oak tree and the Reeds

The Oak tree always thought that he was far stronger than the Reeds.

Said he to the Reeds “I stand upright in a storm. I do not bend my head in fear every time the wind blows. You Reeds are really so weak that you would bend on every stock of wind.”

That very night a storm blew and the mighty oak tree was uprooted.

“Good God!” sighed the Reeds, “our way is better. We bend to but we do not break.”
