The Willow and The Lake

A Willow asked the Lake why it, on one day be placid and reflect all things but on another day be roiled and an instrument of mischief. No answer. Do as few things as possible that you might have to repent.

The Oak and The Willow

In a storm the Willow bent and survived but the Oak could not and was felled. Despite this, the Oak thought he won with an honorable death. Meet death in an honorable way.
