The Hare and the Hound

: Aesop's Fables

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."
