Two Frogs

Two frogs fell into a bucket of cream. The sides of the bucket were shiny and steep, the cream was deep and cold. "Oh, what's the use?" said Frog Number One, "There’s no help around, and no hope for us. “Good-bye, my friend. Good-bye, cruel world." And weeping still, he drowned in the cream.
But Frog Number Two, made of sterner stuff, dog-paddled in surprise and defiance, and as he licked his creamy lips and blinked his creamy eyes, he thought  "I'll swim at least a while."
He kicked and kicked with his hind legs, trying to get out of the bucket. After an hour he found out that all his kicking had churned up a tub of butter underneath him. Happily he perched on top of the butter and hopped off to safety.

Moral of the story: never, ever give up, no matter how difficult the situation is around you.
