ANYONE CAN BREAK THIN WOODEN STICKS, BUT IT IS HARD TO BREAK A BUNDLE OF THE SAME. —OLD SAYING

*This reminded me of a Fable entitled: The Father, His Sons, and The Bundle of Sticks. There are several versions, but I quite like this one. Be well! —Mike

An Old Man had many Sons, who were always falling out with one another. He had often, but to no purpose, exhorted them to live together in harmony. One day he called them round him, and producing a bundle of sticks, bade them try each in turn to break it across. Each put forth all his strength, but the bundle resisted all their efforts. Then, cutting the cord which bound the sticks together, he told his Sons to break them separately. This was done with the greatest case. “See, my Sons,” exclaimed he, “the power of unity! Bound together by brotherly Jove, you may defy almost every mortal ill; divided, you will fall a prey to your enemies.”
