Slow and Steady Wins the Race

Slow and Steady Wins the Race

One day a hare met a tortoise. He laughed at the tortoise and said, “You have as many legs as I have. However, I am sure you cannot run as fast as I can. Perhaps, you can’t run at all.” The tortoise became very angry. He answered quietly. “You can run quite fast, no doubt, I think you can talk even faster than you can run.

Being ashamed of the remarks of the tortoise, the hare immediately proposed to run a race to prove that he could run faster than the tortoise. The tortoise agreed to the proposal. One day they started running to a specific distance. In the middle of the distance, the hare saw that the tortoise was far behind him. He thought it was no matter if he took some rest. He went to a nearby bush to take rest and fell asleep. When the hare woke up he saw that it was already evening. He began to run very fast. But alas! By this time, the tortoise reached the winning post with his slow but steady pace. The hare felt much ashamed.
