The Frog And The Ox By Aesop

Many years ago there was a magnificent ox. One day, when he was taking an afternoon stroll he attracted the attention of a drably dressed, thoroughly insignificant frog. Staring enviously at the splendid ox, the frog called out to his friends, “Look at the size of this fellow! He cuts a fine figure -- but no finer than I could if I tried.” With that he started to puff himself up, and quickly swelled to twice his normal size. “Am I now as big as our friend here?” he asked the other frogs; but they replied that he would have to do a great deal better that. The frog puffed himself up some more, before asking the same question again.
