Two frogs fell into a tub of cream. One looked at the high sides of the tub which were too difficult to crawl over & said, “It is hopeless.” So he resigned himself to death, relaxed & sank to the bottom.
The other one determined to keep swimming as long as he could. “Something might happen,” he said. He kept kicking & churning & finally he found himself on a solid platform of butter & jumped to safety.
