Slow and steady wins the race

One day a hare met a tortoise. ( a short story ) She made fun of slow pace of the tortoise and said, “You have as many legs as I have. ( a short story ) But I am sure, you cannot run as fast as I can. Most probably you can’t run at all”.( a short story )  The tortoise became very angry. He answered quietly, “You can run quite fast, no doubt. But I think, you can talk even faster than you can run. However, I agree to run a five mile race with you. “At this the hare felt very delighted. So she said, ‘Come along, let’s fox a date for the race. “They fixed a date. A fox came to see the race. The tortoise and the hare came to the starting point. The race began.  The hare began to run very fast. She jumped and jumped. She ran a mile in a few minutes. Soon she found the tortoise far behind her. ( a short story ) Then she stopped. She said, I can have a good sleep before the tortoise comes up. ( a short story ) So saying, the hare went to sleep in a bush. In the meantime the tortoise walked on and on. He did not stop anywhere. When he came to bush, he saw the lazy hare lying fast asleep. He smiled and quietly passed by her. After sometime the hare woke up. She saw that it was already evening. She immediately got on her feet. She began to run very fast. But alas! The tortoise was already crossing the winning post. The hare felt much ashamed. ( a short story ) She now said to herself,  “It is true that slow and steady wins the race.” ( a short story )
