Scilurus on his death-bed, being about to leave four-score sons surviving, offered a bundle of darts to each of them, and bade them break them. When all refused, drawing out one by one, he easily broke them, -- thus teaching them that if they held together, they would continue strong; but if they fell out and were divided, they would become weak.
