A Hare was making fun of the Tortoise for being so slow. "Do you ever get anywhere?" The Hare asked.
"Yes" said the Tortoise, "and I get there sooner than you think. I'll run you a race and prove it."
The Hare liked the idea of running a race with the Tortoise, so for the fun of it he agreed. So the Fox who had agreed to be the judge marked the distance and started the race.
The Hare was far, and to make the Tortoise fell bad, he lay down beside the course to take a nap until the catches up.
The Tortoise meanwhile passed the place where the Hare was sleeping. when the Hare woke up the Tortoise was near the goal. The Hare now ran as fast as he could, but could not overtake the Tortoise in time.
The moral of the story is that you can be more successful by doing things slowly and steadily than by acting quickly and carelessly.
