The Story of the Big Race between the Hare and Tortoise
Once upon a time a tortoise and a hare had an argument
about who was faster.
They decided to settle the argument with a race.
They agreed on a route and started off the race.
The hare shot ahead and ran briskly for some time. Then seeing
that he was far ahead of the tortoise, he thought he'd sit
under a tree for some time and relax before continuing the race.
He sat under the tree and soon fell asleep.
The tortoise plodding on overtook him and soon finished
the race, emerging as the undisputed champ.
The hare woke up and realized that he! 'd lost the race.
The moral of the story is that slow and steady wins the race.
This is the version of the story that we've all
grown up with.
