The scorpion and the frog

The scorpion and the frog

Once there was a scorpion that asked a frog to take it across a stream. The frog said, “How do I know that you are not going to sting me while I am doing it”? The scorpion said, “Don’t worry, if I do that, I will die also”.

The frog thought for awhile and decided that what the scorpion said was not unreasonable. So the frog asked the scorpion to climb onto its back.

Half way across the stream, the frog felt a sharp pain. The scorpion had stung it. Just when the frog was about to die, it looked up at the scorpion and said, “But why”! The scorpion answered, “I can’t help it, it’s my nature”.

Self-destruction; don’t do it.

Change what you cannot accept.
