The Snail and The Drone

The Snail and The Drone
By
Aesop

It chanced that a drone observed a snail labouring his tedious journey with tardy pace: “I marvel,” said the drone, “how you have patience to drag on at that slow rate, whilst I can pass swiftly through the air, and go miles to your inches.”

“It is very true,” answered the snail, “you certainly do make a thousand times the speed that I can; but remember, that your swift journey leaves no mark or memorial behind, to show that you ever had existence; while I, though slow, leave behind me a shining record of my path.”


((While alive, live well.))
