There was a proud tree in the forest. He was tall and strong. There was a small herb next to the tree.

The tree said, “I am very handsome and strong. No one can defeat me.” Hearing this the herb replied, “Dear friend, too much pride is harmful. Even the strong will fall one day.”

The tree ignored the herb’s words. He continued to praise himself.

A strong wind blew. The strong tree stood firmly. Even when it rained, the tree stood strong by spreading its leaves.

At the same time, the herb bowed low. The strong tree made fun of the herb.

One day there was a storm in the forest. The herb bowed low. As usual the tree did not want to bow.

The storm kept growing stronger. The tree could no longer bear it. He felt his strength giving way.

He fell down. This was the end of the proud tree. When everything was calm the herb stood straight. He looked around. He saw the proud strong tree had fallen.
