The Frogs And The Bulls

: Boys And Girls Bookshelf

Two frogs, sitting on the edge of a pond saw two Bulls fighting in a

meadow close by. "Alas!" cried one of the frogs. "Those dreadful beasts

are fighting. What will become of us!"

"There is no reason for fear," said the other frog. "Their quarrels have

nothing to do with us. Their lives are different from ours, and cannot

affect us."

"Alas!" said the first frog, "you are wrong. One of them will certainly

triumph. The vanquished will take refuge from the victor in our marshes,

and we shall be trampled under his feet."

When the strong fall out, the weak are the greatest sufferers from

their quarrels.
