The Hares and the Frogs
The Hares were so persecuted by the other beasts, they
did not know where to go. As soon as they saw a single
animal approach them, off they used to run. One day they
saw a troop of wild Horses stampeding about, and in quite
a panic all the Hares scuttled off to a lake hard by,
determined to drown themselves rather than live in such a
continual state of fear. But just as they got near the bank
of the lake, a troop of Frogs, frightened in their turn by
the approach of the Hares scuttled off, and jumped into
the water. ‘Truly,’ said one of the Hares, ‘things are not so
bad as they seem:
‘There is always someone worse off than yourself.’
