A frog hopping through a barnyard accidentally fell into a pail half full of milk. Unable to hop out, it floundered around at first but refused to give up. Hours passed as the frog swam around, its legs feverishly churning through the milk as it sought some way to jump over the edge of the pail.
And the little frog struggled so long that its legs churned the milk into butter, which gave it a solid surface to jump from. The frog leaped out, safe and sound, because it hadn’t stopped trying.
