Two brothers lived on adjoining farms. One day, they acquired right into a heated argument. This was uncommon, as a result of they labored cooperatively and by no means fought. But this disagreement led to weeks of silence. Then one morning, the older brother heard a knock at his door. There stood a carpenter, asking if he had any work for him. “Yes, I’d such as you to construct me an 8-foot fence alongside my property,” the farmer stated, wanting better separation from his brother.

The carpenter promised to construct a fence he can be happy with, and the farmer left for the day. Hours later, as darkness was falling, the farmer drove up his lengthy driveway and his jaw dropped. Instead of a fence round his property, there was a finely crafted bridge connecting his farmland to his brother’s.

He observed his youthful brother making his manner throughout the bridge towards him, and their eyes met. The older brother walked towards him they usually embraced. “After all we went via,” the youthful brother beamed, “you constructed a bridge between us. You’re a standup man.”
