We’re just about to drown. It is good that we give up.” The thin frog replied, “Wait brother! Just keep swimming. Somebody will definitely kick us out.” And they floated in the pot for many hours.

No one is going to come here to help us.” But the slim frog said, “Keep trying. keep swimming. Something will happen, keep swimming.”
A few hours passed again. The fat frog said, I can’t walk anymore. There’s no point in swimming because we’re going to drown anyway, it’s not going to help.”

Once upon a time, somewhere there lived a stone breaker. He used to break stones very hard all day. His hands were very hard and his clothes were also very dirty.
One day, he went to work on a big stone. His work was not easy as it was very hot that day. After working for a few hours, he sat in the shade. After some time, he heard the sound of someone coming.
Getting up, he saw a long convoy of people. There were many soldiers and servants in that convoy. And in the middle of the convoy, a king was sitting in a palanquin. The king’s palanquin was picked up by some powerful people.
“How happy I would be if I were a king, not a stone breaker,” thought the stone breaker, looking at the king. As soon as these words came out of his mouth, then a wonderful thing happened.
The stone breaker saw that he was wearing silk clothes and was adorned with glittering jewellery. His hands were soft and he was sitting in a comfortable palanquin.
The convoy moved forward. Then the heat of the sun had also increased. The stone breaker, who had now become the king, started feeling very hot. As the afternoon approached, the heat of the sun increased, making the king even more restless.
“I am powerful, but the sun is even more powerful! I should be the sun instead of being the king,” the stone-breaker began to choke.
Thinking of this, he became the sun at once and started spreading his radiance on the earth. He began to shine very loudly; He burned the fields with his rays. But, no matter how bright it shone, he could not see beyond the clouds.
It is a sure thing that the clouds are stronger and more powerful than the sun,” said the stone-breaker, “but I must be a cloud”. Suddenly he saw that it had changed form to a dark, thick cloud.
It rained heavily on the fields, which caused a flood. All the trees and houses were washed away in the water. But nothing happened to the rock which he had once broken when he was about to break a stone.
“Why is that rock stronger than me?” Clouds formed, said the stone breaker. “Only a stone breaker can break a rock by his own ability.
How good it would be if I could be a stone breaker again” As he uttered these words, he found himself sitting on a stone.
His hands were hard. He picked up his tools and happily started working on the rock.

Man should be happy at all times
This is the simple short stories. Once, Abdullah gave his camels on rent to a merchant who used them to carry his goods. Often Abdullah accompanied him on his travels.
One day, while returning from a trip, he stopped to take some rest. Just then, a saint came there and they both started talking among themselves.
Soon they both became friends. Interactionally, the saint told him a secret, “There is a treasure buried in a nearby place and I know about it.”
“Then we must go. After loading on my eighty camels, they should be brought here. I will give you a loaded camel,” Abdullah said.
“My friend, you are doing something skimpy. If you promise to give me forty laden camels, I will tell you the secret of that hidden treasure,” said the saint.
Abdullah agreed to this. Reaching that place, the saint muttered a few words. Further, at a short distance there was a crack in the ground. Abdullah saw huge pots in the crack containing gold bars, gold coins, very precious gems and jewels.
Seeing so much treasure, Abdullah’s eyes lit up. “Friend, let us pack it in sacks,” said the saint. They packed all the treasures in sacks one by one and quickly loaded them onto the camels.
There, the saint found a pot of gold inside which was a small wooden box. He put that box in his pocket saying that there is a special ointment in it.
Abdullah and his fellow saint divided the camels. Abdullah could not digest the fact that the saint would get the treasure loaded on forty camels.
So he said, “Look, you are a saint. It will be difficult for you to take care of forty camels.” On this request of Abdullah, he agreed to give his share of forty camels to Abdullah.
“Some of these treasures must be distributed to the poor people,” the saint advised him.
But Abdullah did not pay heed to him. He said to the saint, “I am sure that the wooden ointment box is of no use to you.
Why don’t you give it to me too?” He asked. Now he got greedy and wanted to take that box too. The saint took out the box and said, “You take it, my friend.”
“Will you tell me about this ointment?,” said Abdullah, taking the box in his hand. “If you apply a little ointment from this on your left eye, you will be able to see all the hidden treasures.
But even if you accidentally touch this ointment with your right eye, you will become blind,” the saint told him.
“I am sure that this saint is hiding something. How can it be that the same ointment has two different effects,” thought Abdullah. He did not listen to the saint and rubbed the ointment on his right eye and he became blind.
In an instant, Abdullah’s greed had turned him from a rich man to a beggar.
