One camel said to another camel, “Your master has placed a straw upon your back. Why do you not shake it off?”
And the second camel answered, “The straw is small, and though it itches a bit, it is not a heavy burden and I can bare it.”
The next day, the camel’s master added another straw to the camel’s back. Again, the first camel asks, “Your master has placed another straw upon your back. Your burden has doubled. Why do you not shake it off?”
And again the second camel answered, “It is only a small thing and I can bare it.”
With each passing day, the master added just a little bit more to the camel’s load, and though at first the difference was hardly noticed by the determined and patient camel, eventually the weight became tiresome and the bulky load cumbersome.
Again the first camel inquired, “How can you bare such a load? You barely make it from one oasis to the next. Will you not now either sit down in protest, or roll over to shed the burden placed upon you?”
But while many camels faltered and fell by the way, the faithful camel answered, “If I fail to reach the next oasis, both I and the master will perish.”
The next day, the master added another straw.
