The hare and the tortoise

Aesop’s Fables

The hare sees how slow the tortoise is and decides to sleep a little bit more because it is early in the morning.
The tortoise continues towards the end.
After a while, the hare wakes up.
The hare does not see the tortoise anywhere, not right neither left and wonders.
The hare decides to start the race.
The tortoise is nowhere.
As the hare is reaching the end, he can’t believe in his eyes.
The tortoise is waiting there with the look of a winner.
This is how the tortoise won the hare in a running race.
Not because she is faster
but because she remains true to her cause.
The hare, because of his arrogance has lost from the slow tortoise.
The End
