315 - The Oak and the Reeds



A very large Oak, but with very poor roots, was uprooted by the wind and thrown across a stream. 

It fell among some Reeds, which it thus addressed: 

"I wonder how you, who are so light and weak, are not entirely crushed by these strong winds." 

They replied, 

"Without having good roots, you fight and contend with the wind, and consequently you are destroyed; while we on the contrary bend before the least breath of air, and therefore remain unbroken, and escape."


For not to suffer hardships in front of the arbitrary acts of the powerful one, there are two options: collaborate with him, or prepare with many fortitude and reasons to face him without being knocked down.
