Aesop

Aesop is believed to be the writer of a great number of fables. All his stories have animal characters and they give us a lesson for how we can live our life. One of his most famous fables is 'The Hare and the Tortoise'. In this, the tortoise wins a race against the hare by going slowly and steadily.
