The lion and the hare

Iran Daily - - Entertainment -

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.”
