The Crow and the Jar

Once upon a time, there was a Crow who was half-dead with thirst
He came upon a Jar which had once been full of water; but when the Crow
put its beak into the mouth of the Jar he found that only very little water
was left in it, and that he could not reach far enough down to get at it.
He tried, and he tried, but at last had to give up.
Then a thought came to him, and he took a pebble and dropped it into the
Jar. Then he took another pebble and dropped it into the Jar. Then he
took another pebble and dropped that into the Jar. Then he took another
pebble and dropped that into the Jar. Then he took another pebble and
dropped that into the Jar. Then he took another pebble and dropped that
into the Jar.
At last, at last, he saw the water rise up near him, and after dropping in a
few more pebbles he was able to sip some water and save his life.
“Little by little does the trick” said the Crow, and he went away, no longer
thirsty.
