Have you not heard of the frog that lived in a shallow well
It said to a turtle that lived in the East Sea
"I am so happy! When I go out
I jump about on the railing beside the mouth of the well
When I come home,I rest in the holes on the broken wall of the well
If I jump into the water, it comes up to my armpits and holds up my cheeks
If I walk in the mud, it covers up my feet
I look around at the wriggly worms, crabs and tadpoles
and none of them can compare with me. Moreover
I am lord of this trough of water and I stand up tall in this shallow well
My happiness is full. My dear sir, why don´t you come often and look around my place
Before the turtle from the East Sea could get its left foot in the well
its right knee got stuck. It hesitated and retreated
The turtle told the frog about the East Sea.
Even a distance of a thousand li cannot give you an idea of the sea´s width
even a height of a thousand ren cannot give you an idea of its depth
In the time of King Yu of the Xia dynasty
there were floods nine years out of ten
but the waters in the sea did not increase
ln the time of King Tang of the Shang dynasty there were droughts seven years out of eight
but the waters in the sea did not decrease
The sea does not change along with the passage of time
and its level does not rise or fall according to the amount of rain that falls
The greatest happiness is to live in the East Sea
After listening to these words, the frog of the shallow well
was shocked into realization of his own insignificance and became very ill at ease
