Jugs In The Water
Two jugs, one of clay and one of shiny brass, floated in the raging river, which was swollen from the rain.
As the jugs swirled between the rocks jutting up out of the water, the brass jug said, "Stay close to me, friend. I'll help you make your way! I'm hard and made of brass. I'm much stronger than clay."
"Dear friend," said the clay jug, "Until we are in calm waters and we find a peaceful place, be thoughtful. Keep your distance! What I really need is space! You can protect YOURSELF from breaking on the rocks. That is true. But, how can you protect ME from bumping into YOU?"
