One day a hare made fun of the short feet and slow pace of a tortoise, who replied, laughing: "Although you might be fast, I will beat you in a race." The hare agreed to a race, believing it would be impossible for the tortoise to win. On the day of the race, the two began side by side. The tortoise never stopped for a moment, but crawled with a slow, steady pace directly toward the finish line. The hare, sitting beside the course, fell fast asleep. At last waking up, and moving as fast as he could, he saw the tortoise on the other side of the finish line. He was resting comfortably.
