Animal metaphors are prevalent in almost every language, but people from different cultures may regard the same animal differently. In Chinese proverbs, you will see a lot of animal metaphors to symbolize human actions.
In this lesson, we're showing you three common proverbs related to pigs. They can be directly translated to "Men are afraid of being famous, just as pigs are afraid of getting fat", "Disguise oneself as a pig to catch a tiger", and "Even though one has never eaten pork, at least one has seen pigs run". Do you know what they actually mean? Check out these proverbs with Joy and Joshua and learn how to apply them to daily life!
