The race is not given to the swift quote comes from the Bible and is found in the book of Ecclesiastes, chapter 9 verse 11. This quote is used very often now and was embodied in the book the tortoise and the hair. In the story the tortoise was much slower moving than the hair but he was steady and stayed focus when the hair got distracted because he felt he was so far ahead of everyone that he could stop.
