Let us read
The River and the Hill
The river feels, “I have to run all the time. I want to be like the hill.”
Then, one day the river asks the hill, “Why do I run all the time?”
The hill says, “Ha! Ha! Ha! Can you tell me why I stand all the time?”
The river says, “I think you like to stand all the time.”
The hill says, “No, I have to see the same trees every day. I wish to see new hills and trees!”
The river says, “I get to see new hills and trees every day. Do you want to come with me?”
The hill says, “No, I help many lives here. Just as you help many lives on your way.”
The river says, “Thank you for your help!”
The river runs and the hill stands.
Both the river and the hill are happy.
