The Donkey and the Frogs

110. THE DONKEY AND THE FROGS. An Ass sunk down into a Bog among a Shoal of Frogs, with a Burden of Wood upon his Back, and there he lay, sighing and groaning, as if his Heart would break: Hark ye Friend (says one of the Frogs to him), if you make such a Bus'ness of a Quagmire, when you are but just fall'n into't, what would you do I wonder, if you had been here as long as we have been? THE MORAL. Custom makes Things familiar and easy to us; but everything is best yet in its own Element. (Sir Roger L'Estrange) [more info]
