True Colors

A scorpion asks a frog to carry it across a river

Hesitantly the frog asks, "How do I know you won't kill me?"

"Don't be silly," says the scorpion. "We'd both drown then."

Finally, the frog shrugs and agrees.

Halfway across the river the scorpion stings the frog

“Why would you do this?” asks the frog.

"We're both going to drown!"

“Because I am a scorpion..”

“..and that’s what scorpions do!”

“When people show you who they are, believe them!”

Oprah Winfrey quoting her friend, Maya Angelou
