The Two Frogs

: Aesop's Fables

TWO FROGS dwelt in the same pool. When the pool dried up under

the summer's heat, they left it and set out together for another

home. As they went along they chanced to pass a deep well, amply

supplied with water, and when they saw it, one of the Frogs said

to the other, "Let us descend and make our abode in this well: it

will furnish us with shelter and food." The other replied with

greater caution, "But suppose the water should fail us. How can

we get out again from so great a depth?'

Do nothing without a regard to the consequences.
