The Pride and fall of the Oak Tree - Moral Story

Once, there was an Oak tree residing nearby a river. There were also reeds nearby. The Oak tree was stronger than the reeds and always felt proud of it's strength. It said to itself "I can stand straight in a storm. I won't bend my head due to fear when the wind blows. But, these reeds are very weak and they can't withstand the wind."

The oak tree always used to make fun of the reeds. One night, a heavy storm hit and the strong oak tree broke and fell down.

"Thank God! said the reeds, "We are better than this oak tree. We bend but we don't break."

MORAL: Pride leads to fall
