The Tortoise and the Hare

Act 1 - Who is Faster

The Hare was once boasting of his speed before the other animals. "I have never yet been beaten," said he, "when I put forth my full speed. I challenge any one here to race with me."

Act 2 - The Race

So a course was fixed and a start was made. The Hare darted almost out of sight at once, but soon stopped and, to show his contempt for the Tortoise, lay down to have a nap.

Act 3 - Moral

The tortoise overtakes the sleeping hare and wins.

"Slow and steady wins the race"
