A hungry young fox once chased after a plump rabbit, intending to catch his dinner. However, just before the fox could capture his prey, the rabbit disappeared into its warren.
Being young, the fox was unsure of how he might force the rabbit out of hiding, and decided to seek advice. He ran to his mother's den, explained his trouble and listened carefully to her instructions. To be doubly sure, he also visited his grandmother and asked for her opinion. Still worried that he did not know enough, he further enquired of his uncle. Then he lay down and carefully thought through what he had been told.
At last, feeling confident in his newfound knowledge, he returned to the warren and found that the rabbit had moved on.
Much knowledge cannot replace swift action.
