from The Prayer of the Frog

A frog had lived all his life in a well. One day he was surprised to see another frog there. “Where have you come from?” he asked.

“From the sea. That’s where I live,” said the other. “What’s the sea like? Is it big as my well?”

The sea frog laughed, “There’s no comparison.” he said.

The well frog pretended to be interested in what his visitor had to say about the sea. But he thought, “Of all the liars I have known in my lifetime, this one is undoubtedly the greatest—and the most shameless!”

How does one speak of the Ocean to a frog in the well; or of Reality to the ideologue?
