Some Dogs famished with hunger saw a number of cowhides
steeping in a river. Not being able to reach them, they agreed
to drink up the river, but it happened that they burst themselves
with drinking long before they reached the hides.

Attempt not impossibilities.

(Translated by George Fyler Townsend, 1814-1900)
