The Quack Frog

by Aesop

A FROG once made proclamation to all the beasts that he was a learned physician, and able to heal all diseases.

A FROG once made proclamation to all the beasts that he was a learned physician, and able to heal all diseases. A Fox asked him: How can you pretend to prescribe for others, when you are unable to heal your own lame gait and wrinkled skin?

Moral:
Those who pretend that they can mend others should first mend themselves, and then they will be more readily believed.
