The Two Frogs

Ever said something and then wished you hadn’t? Bought something and then realised you don’t really need it? We all make some rash decisions throughout life, but if we can limit this to but a few then it will be all the more pleasant.

We would all benefit by taking an extra two seconds before responding, or making an important decision. This short story shows this perfectly!

Aesop’s Fables:

Two frogs dwelt in the same pool. The pool being dried up under the summer’s heat, they left it, and set out together to seek another home. As they went along they chanced to pass a deep well, amply supplied with water, on seeing which 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 such a great depth?”
Do nothing without a regard to the consequences!

  1. People enslaved to impulse make an amazingly load of errors this way.
