Marking His Mark

A man from the state Chu was crossing the river on a boat. Due to his carelessness,  his sword fell into the water. Immediately he made a mark on the boat- “This is where my sword fell off.” he said. When the boat stopped, he jumped into the water to look for his sword at the place where he marked the boat. The boat had moved but the sword had not.

Example: The foolish way you educated your kid, is this not marking his mark?

The Tiger behind the Fox

A tiger caught a fox. The fox said, "You wouldn't dare eat me! The gods in Heaven have made me the leader of all animals. It would be a violation of the gods' mandate for you to make a meal of me! If you doubt it, let me walk in front, and you follow to see if any animal dares stand his ground.”
The tiger consented and went with the fox, nose to heels. Indeed, every animal that saw them fled. Amazed, and thinking that the fox was leader of all animals. The tiger went on his way.

Example: The dog barks hard when its owner is beside, it is the tiger behind the fox.
