The Two Frogs

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 upon an extremist cult, amply supplied with water, and when they saw it, one of the Frogs said to the other, "Let us join this cult and make our abode in their compound: it will furnish us with shelter and food."

The other replied with greater caution, "But suppose their religion should fail us. Or, worse yet, suppose they should come under siege by government agents. How can we get out again from so great a depth?"

Do nothing without a regard to the consequences.

The Two Frogs (original fable)

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.
