Lion or gazelle?

“Every morning in Africa, a gazelle wakes up. It knows it must run faster than the fastest lion or it will be killed. Every morning a lion wakes up. It knows it must outrun the slowest gazelle or it will starve to death. It doesn’t matter whether you are a lion or a gazelle; when the sun comes up, you’d better be running.” – Herb Caen

    Interesting. I wish to be a gazelle, if I can choose.

    I think that, if you are a gazelle, you should not run faster than the faster lion, but simply run faster than the slowest gazelle, don’t you think so? 😉
