“Two camels meet on the steep ascent to Beit-Horon; if they both ascend simultaneously both will tumble down into the valley. If they ascend one after the other both can go up safely. How should they act? If one is laden and the other unladen, the unladen camel should let the laden one go first.”
—Talmud, Sanhedrin 32b
