African Proverb: The Chicken and the Eagle

When you go to steal a chicken’s eggs, they will make alot of noise.  You can see and hear them coming, flapping their wings and bawking up a storm.  It’s easy to basically kick them to the side, take the eggs, and go.

If you go to try to steal an eagle’s eggs, you hear nothing but a swoosh the millisecond before your eyes are removed, and/or you’re knocked to the ground.
