“That is a good joke” said the hare. “I could dance around you all the way.”
So a course was fixed and a start was made.
The tortoise said quietly, “I accept your challenge.”
The tortoise plodded on and plodded on, and when the hare awoke from his nap, he saw the tortoise nearing the finish line so he could not catch up in time to save the race.
e hare was once boasting of his speed before the other animals. “I have never been beaten yet” said he. “When I put forth my full speed I challenge anyone here to race with me.”
The plodding wins the race.
“Keep your boasting until you are beaten” answered the tortoise. “Shall we race?”
The hare darted out at once, but soon stopped and lay down to have a nap in order to show his contempt for the tortoise.
