L'Estrange: A Lion and a Frog.

A Lion that was ranging about for his Prey, made a Stop all on a Sudden at a hideous yelling Noise he heard, which not a little startled him. The Surprize put him at first into a shaking Fit; but as he was looking about and preparing for the Encounter of some terrible Monster, what should he see but a pitiful Frog come crawling out from the Side of a Pond. And is this all? (says the Lion) and so betwixt Shame and Indignation, he put forth his Paw, and pash'd out the Guts on't.

There's no resisting of First Motions; but upon second Thoughts we come immediately to our selves again.
