Crow and jug

A thirsty crow found a jug

It happily went toward the jug.

However, the jug contained little water,

The crow's beak couldn't reach the water's surface.

Still, the crow didn't give up but tried

But in spite of that effort,

Everything ended up failure.

But crow had not given up yet.

Think,just think, don't give up.

Surely there will be a good way

Oh, yes!

The crow that had came up with a good idea collected the stones that could be collected, one by one

It dropped them into the jug with its beak.

Then the water level of the jug increased by the amount of the stone,

Finally the water reached the crow's beak.

The crow that did his best without giving up until the end was able to prolong his life in this way.

The need is called the mother of invention.

No matter how difficult things are, if you do your best without giving up, you will always succeed.
