The Lion and the Gazelle

Every morning in Africa, a gazelle wakes up.

It knows it must outrun the fastest lion, or else it will be killed.

Every morning in Africa, a lion wakes up.

It knows it must run faster than the slowest gazelle, or else it will starve.

So, it doesn’t matter whether you’re the lion or the gazelle – when the sun comes up, you’d better be running.

– Adapted from an African proverb.
