„A living dog is better than a dead lion.“

—  Henry David Thoreau, Walden

Walden (1854)
Contexto: A living dog is better than a dead lion. Shall a man go and hang himself because he belongs to the race of pygmies, and not be the biggest pygmy that he can? Let every one mind his own business, and endeavor to be what he was made. Why should we be in such desperate haste to succeed, and in such desperate enterprises? If a man does not keep pace with his companions, perhaps it is because he hears a different drummer. Let him step to the music which he hears, however measured or far away.<!--pp.366-367

„Translation: Better a live dog than a dead lion.“

—  Stefano Guazzo Italian writer 1530 - 1593

Più tosto can vivo che leone morto.
