Hare and the Tortoise Moral
The hare said to the tortoise, “I am faster than you.”
So they had a race.
At first the hare ran fast.
Then he took a rest.
While he was sleeping, the tortoise went past.
Suddenly the hare woke up, quite refreshed.
He chased the tortoise.
He won, saying over his shoulder, “Once a tortoise, always a tortoise.”
An ungracious winner to be sure.
But the moral of the story could be:
”The swift do sometimes win. If they don’t sleep too long, that is.”
Life is not always fair.
You could rewrite this story many times.
Here’s an example.
