7.Tortoise and hare

A tortoise one day met a hare who made fun of her. "Why you move so slowly, you will never get far!"The tortoise smiled and replied politely "Let's have a race and see who is faster."The hare laughed and said, "You must be joking! But all right, we'll see who reaches the other side of the hill first." Then the hare ran, leaving the tortoise far behind.After a while, the hare stopped to wait for the tortoise to come long. He understood she is far behind. He waited and waited and he felt sleepy. He thought ;"I might as well take a nap,". “Even if she catches up with me, I can easily win the race." So he lay down under a shady tree and closed his eyes.

When the tortoise passed the sleeping hare, she walked on slowly but steadily. By the time the hare woke up, the tortoise was near the finishing line. He ran as fast as he could, but he could not catch up with the tortoise. The small tortoise wins the race.

Moral:Slow and steady wins the race.



A Fox once saw a Crow fly off with a piece of bread in its beak and settle on a branch of a tree. "That's for me, as I am a Fox," said the Fox , and he walked up to the foot of the tree.

"Good-day, Mistress Crow," he cried. "How well you are looking to-day: how glossy your feathers; how bright your eye. I feel sure your voice must surpass that of other birds, just as your figure does; let me hear but one song from you that I may greet you as the Queen of Birds."

The Crow lifted up her head and began to caw her best, but the moment she opened her mouth the piece of bread fell to the ground, only to be snapped up by Master Fox. "That will do," said he. "That was all I wanted. In exchange for your bread, I will give you a piece of advice for the future: Do not trust flatterers!

Moral: Do not trust flatterers
