A father had a family of sons who were perpetually quarreling among themselves. When he failed to heal their disputes by his exhortations, he determined to give them a practical illustration of the evils of disunion; and for this purpose he one day told them to bring him a bundle of sticks tied with twine, and said to his oldest son: "Break it in pieces."

Oldest son tried and tried, but with all his strength, he could not break the bundle.

The other sons also tried, but none of them was successful.

"Untie the bundle," said the father, "and each of you take one stick."

When they had done so, he said to them: "Now, try to break your stick." Each stick was easily broken. "You see my meaning," said their father.

He then addressed them in these words: "My sons, if you are of one mind, and unite to assist each other, you will be as this bundle of sticks, uninjured by all the attempts of your enemies; but if you are divided among yourselves, you will be broken as easily as these single sticks."

Moral of the Story: "United we stand, Divided we fall," the basic concept is that unless the people are united, it is easy to destroy them.
