Aesop's Fables

The Olive Tree And The Fig Tree

An Olive tree taunted a Fig tree with the loss of her leaves at a certain season of the year.
      
      "You," she said, "lose your leaves every autumn, and are bare till the spring: whereas I, as you see, remain green and flourishing all the year round."
      
      Soon afterwards there came a heavy fall of snow, which settled on the leaves of the Olive so that she bent and broke under the weight; but the flakes fell harmlessly through the bare branches of the Fig, which survived to bear many another crop.
