120. The Hare and the Tortoise

A HARE one day ridiculed the short feet and slow pace of the tortoise.

Tortoise 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.

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.

Slow but steady wins the race.

119. TWO FISHES AND A FROG

Long, long ago, there lived two fish and a frog in a pond. The names of the two fish were Shatabuddhi and Sahasrabuddhi. The name of the frog was Ekabuddhi.

 

One day, when the three friends were talking to each other on the edge of the pond, some fishermen passed by. They were carrying baskets and nets with them. They saw the pond and said to one another, “This pond seems to be full of fish. Let’s come tomorrow and catch them.”
