Leaving the Nest

“There was once a poor man who had four sons, and when they were grown up, he said to them, 'My dear children, you must now go out into the world, for I have nothing to give you, so set out, go abroad and learn a trade, and see how you can make your way.' So the four brothers took their sticks, bade their father farewell, and went through the town-gate together.”
