A long time ago, the Sun and the North Wind
would argue over who was the greatest power
in the universe.
Each one thought that they were the strongest
and most powerful person in the world. 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
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
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 coat, which he'd buttoned
The Sun and the North Wind decided the winner
would be the first one who could get the traveling
man to take his coat 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 coat
around his body.
At last, exhausted, the North Wind gave up.
"Ok, I may have not been able to make him
take off that coat," 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
coat 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."
