Aesop's Fables with lessons and morals

He surprised a lion to a Hare sleeping peacefully. But when I was about to devour her, he saw pass a deer. Then let the Hare chasing the deer.
He woke up the Hare to chase noise, and not expecting more, undertook his flight.
Meanwhile the lion, which was unable to give scope to the deer, already tired, returned to take the Hare and he found that it had also sought his way safely.
The lion then said:
-Well I deserve it, as already having a dam in my hands, I left it to go after hoping to get more.

If you have in your hands a small benefit, when you search for one greater, not abandon the little you have, as long as you don't really in your hands the greatest.
