A Ploughman’s sons were always quarrelling. He scolded them to no avail- his words did nothing to change their ways. So he decided to teach them a practical lesson. He asked them to bring him a load of firewood. As soon as they had done this he gave a bundle to each and told them to break it all up for him. But, in spite of all their efforts, they were unable to do so. The ploughman therefore undid the bundles and handed each of his sons a stick at a time. These they broke without any trouble. “So!” said the father. “you too, my children, if you stay bound together, can be invincible to your enemies. But if you are divided you will be easy to defeat.”
How many times have a group of people forced their opinion on a minority? If you believe in something strongly, in life, at work, or anything else at all, surround yourself with people who have the same beliefs. This way you will be like the bundle of twigs and will not be easily broken. Stand alone and it will be a different story.
