NARRATOR: One day a hare was making fun at the tortoise.


HARE: Ha, ha, ha!.  Your feet are so small and you walk so slow that you take too long to get to a place.


TORTOISE: You may be as faster as the wind, but I will beat you in a race.


HARE: That is simply impossible. Ha, ha, ha!.  But, I agree, let`s have a race.


TORTOISE: Very well then.  The fox will choose the way and will wait for us  at the winning post.


FOX: Very good!.  I will be waiting for both of you.  Let`s see who wins!.


NARRATOR: On the day of the race the two started the race together.


FOX: 1, 2, 3, Go!.


TORTOISE: I will not stop walking.  I will keep walking slow but at a steady pace straight to the end of the finish line.


HARE: Oh well.  That tortoise walks so slow that I have time to take a nap.  zzzzzzzzzz


NARRATOR: When the hare woke up.


HARE: Oh I fell asleep.  I have to run as fast as I can.  I think I wasted some time.


NARRATOR: Then he saw the Tortoise had reached the winning post.


HARE: How did you do it?.  This is impossible!.


TORTOISE: While you slept, I kept walking.   I may seem slow, but I am constant and patient, so I won the race.


HARE: You`re right Tortoise,  being fast doesn’t mean that you will win.  I learned my lesson!.

A Hare one day ridiculed the short feet and slow pace of the Tortoise, who replied, laughing:  “Though you be swift as the wind, I will beat you in a race.”  The Hare, believing her assertion to be simply impossible, assented to the proposal; and they agreed that the Fox should choose the course and fix the goal.  On the day appointed for the race the two started together.  The Tortoise never for a moment stopped, but went on with a slow but steady pace straight to the end of the course.  The Hare, lying down by the wayside, fell fast asleep.  At last waking up, and moving as fast as he could, he saw the Tortoise had reached the goal, and was comfortably dozing after her fatigue.
