This Brothers Grimm tale shows that nobility and kindness prevail even in the most sticky of situations. Our hero, Simpleton, triumphs over obstacle after obstacle to find the Golden Goose, and show that even the meek among us have great things to offer. As is said of our hero “You're kindhearted, friendly, honest -- those are the best qualities a person can have.” And that is truly a lesson for us all.
