Source text - English The Hares and the Frogs
The hares always lived in fear of other stronger animals. Whenever they saw any animal coming towards them, they used to run away. One day, they saw some wild horses. in fear, all the hares ran towards a nearby lake.
They were very ashamed of their fearful life. They started thinking of drowning themselves. But when they came near the lake, they scared some frogs. All the frogs, at once, jumped into the water. the hares thought, "life is not bad. we also scare smaller animals."
Translation - French Les Lièvres et les Grenouilles
Les lièvres vivaient toujours dans la peur d’autres animaux plus forts. Dès qu’ils voyaient un quelconque animal venir dans leur direction, ils se sauvaient. Un jour, ils virent des chevaux sauvages. Effrayés, tous les lièvres coururent vers un lac avoisinant.
Ils avaient très honte de leur vie remplie de peur. Ils commencèrent à penser à se noyer. Mais quand ils arrivèrent près du lac, ils firent peur à des grenouilles. Toutes les grenouilles, sautèrent aussitôt dans l’eau. Les lièvres pensèrent, « La vie n’est pas mauvaise. Nous aussi nous faisons peur aux animaux plus petits. »
