Two Frogs

Have you heard the story of the two frogs? One frog was fat and the other one was
skinny, and one day while they were hopping around looking for food, they accidently
hopped into a big barrel of milk. They couldn't get out of the barrel. The sides were
too slippery. They tried to climb to the top but it was impossible. So they just swam
around in the milk.
The fat frog said to the skinny frog, "Brother frog, there's no use swimming around
here any longer. There’s no way out. We're just going to drown, so we might as well
give up." The skinny frog replied, "Wait brother, keep swimming, keep paddling.
Somebody will get us out." And they continued paddling for hours.
Eventually, the fat frog said, "Brother frog, there's no point. I'm becoming very tired
now. I'm just going to stop paddling and drown. It's Sunday and nobody's working.
We're going to die. There's no possible way out of here." But the skinny frog said,
"Keep trying. Keep paddling. Keep moving. Something will happen, keep going."
Another couple of hours passed.
The fat frog said, "I can't go on any longer. There's no sense in doing it because we're
going to drown anyway. What's the use?" And the fat frog stopped. He gave up. And
he drowned in the milk. But the skinny frog kept on moving and paddling. The skinny
frog didn’t give up.
Ten minutes later, the skinny frog felt something solid under his feet. He had turned
the milk into butter and he hopped out of the barrel.
