  9. If I keep entering eventually I shalt win...

    The Hare and the Tortoise


    The Hare was once boasting of his speed before the other
    animals. "I have never yet been beaten," said he, "when I put
    forth my full speed. I challenge any one here to race with me."

    The Tortoise said quietly, "I accept your challenge."

    "That is a good joke," said the Hare; "I could dance round you
    all the way."

    "Keep your boasting till you've beaten," answered the
    Tortoise. "Shall we race?"

    So a course was fixed and a start was made. The Hare darted
    almost out of sight at once, but soon stopped and, to show his
    contempt for the Tortoise, lay down to have a nap. The Tortoise
    plodded on and plodded on, and when the Hare awoke from his nap,
    he saw the Tortoise just near the winning-post and could not run
    up in time to save the race. Then said the Tortoise:

    "Plodding wins the race."

  15. Wonderful! I first learned of Aesop and his fabled fables, as I did about many things-- from cartoons. Aesop & Son, a regular feature of The Adventures of Rock & Bullwinkle.
