A tortoise one day
met a hare who made
fun of her.“My, my,
you move so slowly,
you will never get far!”
The tortoise, upset by
the hare’s manner,said,
“Let’s have a race and see
who is faster." The hare
laughed and said,
“You must be joking!But all right, we'll see
who reaches the other side of the hill first."
Off he ran, leaving the tortoise far behind.
After a while, the hare stopped to
wait for the tortoise to come.
He waited and waited till he
felt sleepy. “I might as well take
a nap,” he thought. “Even if she
catches up with me, I can easily
win the race." So he lay down
under a shady tree and closed
When the tortoise passed the
sleeping hare, she walked on
slowly but steadily. By the time
the hare woke up, the tortoise
was near the finishing line. He ran
as fast as he could, but he could
not catch up with the tortoise.
Moral : Working slowly but confidently, will lead you to success.
