The Lion and the Gazelle

Every morning in Africa, a gazelle wakes up.
It knows that it must outrun the fastest lion or it will be killed.

Every morning in Africa, a lion wakes up.
It knows that it must out run the slowest gazelle or it will starve.

It does not matter whether you are a lion or gazelle.
When the sun comes up you had better be running.
