A FATHER had a family of sons who were perpetually quarreling among themselves. When he failed to heal their disputes by his exhortations, he one day told them to bring him a bundle of sticks. When they had done so, he placed the bundle into the 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 to do it. He next unclosed the fagot, and took the sticks separately, one by one, and again put them into their hands, on 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, you will be as this fagot, uninjured by all attempts of your enemies; but if you are divided among yourselves, you will be broken as easily as these sticks.
Disunited families are easily injured by others.
- The father always quarrel with his sons
- The sons always quarrel between each other
- If you stay together it is easier to be injured by others
