By virtue of its slow movements, turtles have been deemed patient creatures. This concept is celebrated in the popular imagination by Aesop's ancient tale of the Tortoise and the Hare. The tortoise is the hero of the story whose single-minded determination contrasts with the directionless, hasty, and flippant bearing of the hare. Therefore the turtle was anthropomorphically deemed a wise old man, the opposite of youthful foolishness and impatience.
