The Hares And The Frogs

THE HARES were so persecuted by the other beasts, they did not know where to go.
As soon as they saw a single animal approach them, off they used to run. One day
they saw a troop of wild Horses stampeding about, and in quite a panic all the
Hares scuttled off to a lake hard by, determined to drown themselves rather than
live in such a continual state of fear. But just as they got near the bank of
the lake, a troop of Frogs, frightened in their turn by the approach of the Hares,
scuttled off, and jumped into the water. “Truly,” said one of the Hares,
&#147;things are not so bad as they seem:<br>
<p><p>&#147;THERE IS ALWAYS SOME ONE WORSE OFF THAN YOURSELF.&#148; <br>
