One day a goat was crossing a very narrow bridge over a river. At the middle of the bridge he met another goat. There was no room for them to pass.
"Go back," said one goat. "There is no room for both of us."
"Why should I go back?" asked the other goat. "You go back!"
"No way," said the first goat. "I am stronger than you."
"You are not!" said the second goat.
The first goat huffed and puffed and got ready to fight.
"Stop!" said the second goat. "If we fight, we will both fall into the river. Instead I will lie down and you can walk over me."
The wise goat lay down on the bridge and the other goat walked lightly over him. They passed each other and went on their ways.
