GREEK FOLK TALE

A MAN HAD THREE SONS WHO WERE FIGHTING WITH EACH OTHER. HE CALLED
HIS SONS TOGETHER AND GAVE EACH ONE OF THEM A STICK AND TOLD THEM
TO BREAK IT. THEY ALL BROKE IT SUCCESSFULLY. HE THEN GAVE THEM
EACH TEN STICKS TIED TOGETHER AND TOLD THEM TO BREAK THEM. THEY
COULD NOT.
THE MORAL OF THE STORY IS THAT BROTHERS SHOULD NOT FIGHT BUT STICK
TOGETHER SO THAT THEY CANNOT BE BROKEN.
