" Aesop "是指 " 伊索 " ，古希臘的文學家，寫過許多引人深省的寓言，集結成 [ 伊索寓言 ] 一書。以下為此預言的原文故事 :
The Ass and the Frogs AN ASS, carrying a load of wood, passed through a pond. As he was crossing through the water he lost his footing, stumbled and fell, and not being able to rise on account of his load, groaned heavily. Some Frogs frequenting the pool heard his lamentation, and said, What would you do if you had to live here always as we do, when you make such a fuss about a mere fall into the water?
大意是說有一支驢子馱著一些木才經過池塘邊，不小心一滑就掉進了池中，大哭了起來。池塘裏有幾隻青蛙聽見了他的哭聲，告訴他 : [ 你才摔倒這樣一下就如此難過；那如果是像我們這樣總在這裏生活的話又該怎麼辦呢? ]
*Men often bear little grievances with less courage than they do large misfortunes.
