The tortoise and the hare

posted by Jason Kottke   Oct 27, 1998

Remember that old fable of the tortoise and the hare? Basically, the faster hare is overconfident and loses a foot race to the slower, but steadier, tortoise. Somehow, the moral to this story is: “slow and steady wins the race.”

I beg to differ. The race was not won by the tortoise; it was lost by the hare. The moral should read: “don’t fuck around when there’s shit to be done.” Or something like that.
