THE FATHER AND HIS SONS 

Aesop's Fable 


 

A father had a family of sons who were perpetually quarreling among themselves. When he failed to heal their disputes by his exhortations,he determined to give them a practical illustration of the evils of disunion; and for this purpose he one day told them to bring him abundle of sticks. When they had done so, he placed the faggot intothe hands of each of them in succession, and ordered them to break it in pieces. They tried with all their strength, and were not able todo it. He next opened the faggot, took the sticks separately, one by one, and again put them into his sons' hands, upon which they broke them easily. He then addressed them in these words:
"My sons, if you are of one mind, and unite to assist each other, youwill be as this faggot, uninjured by all the attempts of your enemies;but if you are divided among yourselves, you will be broken as easily as these sticks."
