Look Before You Leap

Once a fox was roaming in the dark. As ill luck would have it, he fell into a well. He tried his best to come out but all to no use. So, he had to remain there till the next morning.

At about fore-noon the next day, a goat came that way. She peeped into the well and saw the fox there.

“What are you doing there, Mr Fox ?” asked the goat.

“I came here to drink water. It is the best I have ever tasted. Come and see for yourself,” replied the sly fox.

Without thinking even a bit, the goat jumped into the well. She quenched her thirst and looked for a way to get out.

The fox said, “I’ve an idea. Stand on your hind legs. I’ll climb on your head and get out. Then I shall help you out too.” The silly goat did so and the fox got out of the well.

While walking away, he said, ” Had you been wise, you would never have got in without seeing how to get out.”
