The Tortoise and the Hare
One day, the tortoise came across the hare and said, "I can run faster than you!" Although the hare said, "Get out of here!" he couldn't convince the tortoise. Finally, thinking that it wouldn't matter, he agreed to race with the tortoise. They set a date and parted ways. The day arrived, and the hare knew how fast he could run, so he didn't care and curled up by the side of the road and fell asleep. But the tortoise knew he couldn't run fast, so he didn't waste even a minute and immediately set off. He arrived at the destination before the hare.
The Goat and the Donkey
Once upon a time, a goat and a donkey were living together on a farm. The goat always had to find her own food, but the donkey was fed by their owner every day because he was used for heavy labor. The goat had forgotten the hard work the donkey did every day and was jealous of him being fed by their owner. As a member of the farm, she complained, "Why does the donkey always get his food brought to him while I have to find my own food every day?" After thinking about her plan for a long time, she went to the donkey to put it into action.
The goat said, "Donkey brother, do you know what? I feel sorry for your situation. You carry hundreds of kilos of load every day without stopping, I've never seen you rest even for a day, you also need some rest."
The donkey replied, "Goat sister, you know the situation. Our owner doesn't have another animal to carry the loads, so I have to work every day for the farm's chores."
The goat said, "Donkey brother, if you keep doing everything, of course, the owner won't stop you. Maybe if you get sick or injured, the owner will get another donkey to help you, and you can work together in a row."
King and his shoes
Once upon a time, there was a king who ruled a wealthy country. One day, he wanted to visit every corner of his country. He hit the roads and went to every village and town, regardless of the mountains and hills. When he returned to the palace, his feet hurt a lot because he had walked on rocky terrain. He constantly complained that the stones and rocks on the roads had hurt his feet.
Therefore, the king ordered his men to cover all the roads in his country with leather. When all the roads in his country were covered with leather, the king could travel comfortably. However, covering all the roads with leather was quite difficult, as it required a lot of cowhide. It was going to cost a lot of money just to make the king walk more comfortably.
The queen came up with a suggestion for this situation. She said to the king: "Why spend so much money on this job? Instead of covering all the roads with leather, you can solve this problem by cutting a piece of leather and making shoes for your feet."
The king liked the queen's suggestion. He agreed with her and had a pair of shoes made from leather for himself. He continued to travel his country, covering every inch of it, wearing his new leather shoes.

At first, the man froze, but when the earthquake stopped, he ran towards the nearby forest. He was running so fast that he quickly reached the forest, but he got lost because everything looked the same.
He kept running without stopping, and then he saw an old woman in a house nearby. He started seeing her every time he ran by, and she told him that he wasn't going anywhere and was just running in circles. He eventually slowed down as she advised him. The old woman told him how to heal his feet using moss and showed him the way out of the forest towards his home.
When he arrived home, his family was anxiously waiting for him. They hugged him and told him how much they loved him. They celebrated his return and promised to follow his example if they ever got lost in the forest.
Cell phone and the man
Once upon a time, a man saved up all his money to buy a cell phone because he loved watching music videos. His wife gave him a beautiful cell phone as a birthday present. But when he tried to listen to his favorite songs, he saw that the music and video were cutting out and skipping. He was frustrated and couldn't understand why this expensive phone was having these problems. He couldn't return the phone to the store, so he didn't know what to do with it. He took the phone to a cell phone repair shop with his father. The technician told him that this was a common problem and was usually seen in phones that have been dropped or hit. The technician opened the phone and showed him where the screen was damaged and that the speaker was also broken. He said he could fix it, but he needed to take better care of his phone from now on. The technician made the phone even better than before. The man promised to take good care of it and the phone played his favorite music beautifully.
