Question: This is an aphorism, a saying - In NO WAY is this religious, so please don't take it as such. I take it as, the common man provides for himself, but those that are seen as betters (A king, or Paris Hilton) don't have to work for anything. It's handed to them on a silver platter. What do you think? Is this statement valid? How so? What examples prove this - like in history, personal experiences, literature, ect?

I might as well say i take this rather differently than you. Fox represents decieving, cunning & manipulative beings. While image of a lion shows pride, courage, strength. This quote is from a religious person, and i have no doubt on that as it metions about god. I think the animals are metaphoric meaning of people. Fox; the cunning manipulative people who take advantage of others who PROVIDES HIMSELF, the last 2 words to emphasize the selfishness. However lions are somewhat described as courageous, loyal, generous in all sort of myths. In my perspective, i think this writer wants to say god provides hardship for some people in order to make him stronger and more courageous - providing the characteristics of a lion. And we all know fox are inferior to lions. This quote also mentions about fox; the deceiving cunning people cannot beat the courageous & generous good people in the end. But of course, quotes are also interpreted differently so i may be wrong. ;) Hope this helps.

It means what type of animals and plants can you find there. The Pride Lands in the Lion King is a savanna. So there are, in addition to lions and hyenas, zebras, gazelle, giraffe, elephants, and different types of birds. If you can find a video online of the start of the movie that has the song "Circle of Life", it shows a lot of the animals that can be found there. Hope this helps.

The quote is from Blake's Proverbs of Hell and thus the conclusion you should draw is the exact opposite to that which you conclude from the actual phrase! So anyone trying to come up with an answer that makes sense to them is on to a loser.

History states that when hunters slept, they always kept the wild animals away from their camp by building a campfire. Besides cougars, there were bears, snakes, wolves and even insects that would make staying in the open wilderness dangerous without fire. After awhile a cabin or cave was used for a more permanent shelter from the snow or rain.
