The Wind and the Sun by Aesop

There was once an argument between the wind and the sun about who was stronger than the other. They argued for a long time but neither of them emerged the winner. Looking at the man wearing a coat, an idea struck them both. The wind volunteered to try first. It began to blow hard, raising gusts of air and making it harder for the man to take a step further.
