Soon, there was the talk of not getting out of the hole alive. “We are going to die!” one of them said. The others had to agree. Despite all this, there were two frogs who were jumping relentlessly. These frogs kept jumping up at the hole’s mouth in the hope of getting out.

But the others inside the hole were too negative about it. “What is the point?” they yelled. “You are not going to make it out anyway, just stop already. The hole’s mouth is too far. You’ll never make it, give up and wait for your death to come for you.”

Still, the two continued to jump. And still, the other continued to tell them that it was useless. After a point, a frog fell and died. The others only heaved a sigh and said they knew there was no running. “We are going to die, that much is certain.”

With all this happening, the other frog still continued to jump. “Why do you jump? You will die too.” After a while, the frog, to everyone’s surprise, made it out! “How did you do so?” “Thank you for encouraging me,” the frog said and hopped ahead telling them to follow. Surprised the frogs looked at each other. Then one of them remembered, that the frog that leaped out was deaf and he thought these frogs were encouraging him! Also, read Two Frogs In A Milk Pail.
