The crow and the pitcher
THE CROW AND THE PITCHER
A thirsty Crow found a pitcher with some water in it. But so little was there that try as it might. It could not reach it with its beak, and it seemed as though it would die of thirst within sight of the remedy. At last, it hit upon a clever plan. It began dropping pebbles into the pitcher, and with each pebble, the water rose a little higher until at last, it reached the brim, and the knowing bird was enabled to quench her thirst.
