The frog and the ox
Press to read the story
Who wants to imitate the others without knowing their limits will have bad luck.
One day a frog saw an ox in the field and became very envious of his size. She blew up her skin, in order to seem bigger, and asked her children if she was bigger than the ox. They said: “No”. She blew herself up more and re-asked them: “Am I bigger now?”, and they answered: “No!”. Then, she tried to blow herself up even more, but she exploded and died.
