The sound of an angry frog

MAY 19-21, 2000

Long ago, a Chinese king was leading his troops to an important battle. He happened to notice a tiny frog puffed up to attack the huge intruders on his territory. Impressed by the frog’s fighting spirit, the king admonished his men to display similar determination in facing the enemy.
