Kup Manduk, the frog in the well (an old asian tale)

  Once upon a time,there was a frog that lived in a deep old well. For him the well was his world. This frog was very happy, every day fed on the worms that lived in the water of the well, and became a fat frog full of energy. One day a sea turtle stopped by at the edge of the well. The frog was so excited! “hello! where are you from?” “I am from the sea” “The sea! What is it? How big is that? Is it as big as my well? And he took a leap from one side of the well to the other. “My friend”, said the turtle, ” how do you compare the sea with your little well?” Then the frog took another leap and asked “Is your sea so big?” The turtle exclaimed “The sea is bigger, much bigger than your well!” Then the frog shouted ” You are a liar!! Nothing can be bigger than my well! Liar, liar!! ” and turned the turtle out. Don’t be like Kup Manduk, come out of your well, keep your mind open, and never believe that you have learned all you need to...
