Fable Aesop
The Hare And The Hound
printer friendly version
A Hound startled 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."

(Translated by George Fyler Townsend, 1814-1900)
