The Hare and the Tortoise
 
    One day a Hare ran a race with a Tortoise. Being very proud of his speed, the Hare thought that the tortoise had no chance to win against him.
    During the race the Hare stopped to see how far the Tortoise was. He thought he had time enough to take a short nap.
    While the Hare was sleeping on the grass, the Tortoise passed him slowly, but steadily. When he woke up, it was too late. The Tortoise had already won the race.

    The race is not to the swift, nor the battle to the strong!
