A Dog And A Lion’s Skin
Japanese ←→ Japanese ＆ English ←→ English
A dog found a skin of a lion and tore it up.
A fox was watching it and said to the dog,
“You know, if this lion were still alive, its nails would be stronger than your teeth.
Thank it was just a skin.”
When a person who is powerful or in an honorable position loses its power or honor,
even people who had respected them get to look down on them.
