A story I loved as a child was about two frogs who were playing leapfrog. What else?
But by mistake they jumped into a large vat of fresh cream. Finding no foothold they started swimming to avoid drowning. But one of the frogs was just too tired. He couldn’t take it and he croaked to his friend that he was finished. And sure enough, he sank to the bottom of that vat and died a miserable death. He really croaked.
But the other frog missed his friend, of course, saddened by his loss but he kept right on going persevering, swimming, persevering, persevering, swimming with determination. Here we go. He kept right on going. With perseverance and determined strokes he had churned that cream into butter and hopped out.
