We all know the story , right?
**************************************************

The story concerns a Hare who ridicules a slow-moving Tortoise.

Tired of the Hare's arrogant behaviour, the Tortoise challenges him to a race.

The hare soon leaves the tortoise behind and, confident of winning, takes a nap midway through the race.

When the Hare awakes, however, he finds that his competitor, crawling slowly but steadily, has arrived before him.

Hence slow but steady wins the race.
