Inspired by the Tortise and the Hare
Fable: A Hare one day was boasting of his speed: "No one can beat me! Especially not you, Tortise. It must take you days to travel just a mile". The Tortise, amused, accepted the challenge. 'At the starting line, the Hare sped off, laughing haughtily as he left the Tortise behind. So sure of his victory, the Hare stopped under a shady tree to nap. But the Tortise kept steady, eventually overtaking the sleeping Hare. As the Tortise neared the finish line, the startled Hare awoke and raced at full speed - but he could not overtake the victorious Tortise.' Slow and steady wins the race.
