A Lion came across a Hare, who was fast asleep. He was just in
the act of seizing her, when a fine young Hart trotted by, and he
left the Hare to follow him. The Hare, scared by the noise, awoke
and scudded away. The Lion was unable after a long chase to
catch the Hart, and returned to feed upon the Hare. On finding
that the Hare also had run off, he said, "I am rightly served, for
having let go of the food that I had in my hand for the chance of
obtaining more."

(Translated by George Fyler Townsend, 1814-1900)
