The north wind and the sun were disputing which would be stronger, when a
traveller came along wrapped in a warm cloak. They agreed that who first
succeeded to make the traveller take off his cloak will be considered
stronger than the other.

Then the north wind blew as hard as he could, but the more he blew, the more
closely the traveller folded his cloak around him; and at last the north
wind gave up the attempt.

Then the sun shone out warmly, and immediately the traveller took off his
cloak. And so the north wind was obliged to confess that the sun was the
stronger of them.
