A young frog hopped to another pond for a day and a half, and settled there.
Once upon a time, in his old pond, he had hatched from an egg looking like a tiny fish.
But then his little fins and his hind limbs had regressed, and his legs and arms grew, and he went ashore. He had become a real frog, and a fine one indeed. And because he had been through such great transformations and could live on land as well as in the water and had also travelled far, he thought he had already experienced and seen everything and knew all the secrets of the world.
