The Hare and the Hound

Posted on April 9, 2012


A Hound started a Hare from his lair, but after a long run, gave up the chase. A goat-herd, seeing him stop, mocked him, saying, “The little one is the best runner of the two.” The Hound replied, “You do not see the difference between us: I was only running for a dinner, but he for his life.”
