An Aesop's Fable
The Oak and The Reeds. You don't always have to fight to succeed.

A VERY LARGE OAK 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, "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." 

t is surprising to find that despite a violent storm, the reeds along the bank of a river were still standing, while the presumably rigid oak was uprooted.
The story tells us that it is important to realize your weaknesses in order to improve upon your faults.
So what was the oak's weakness and the reeds' strength?
