I agree, if one uses it to deflect criticism. The spirit of the quote itself, however, rings true, imo. Hunting needn't enter the equation. There's nothing wrong with the quote itself, but in the context to which it was applied. In a way, this is the result of "reality distortion", which is often a result of cult manipulation. Interesting take on the quote, but you, like many others, seem to provide vague and opened ended answers to the quote's contextual nature. Lions are predators, and yes they feed upon prey.
I remember walking through South Manchester on a cool day no pun intended. As I walked along the pavement, something caught my eye. My instincts started nudging me like a tap on the shoulder. This was before I knew who Usain Bolt even was. I thought hold on a second, what the F is going on here? I knew the situation looked strange. But of course Usain Bolt Jr was so fast they gave up the chase.
The saying is usually tied to a story about being the best you can be. Yes, it does encourage individuals to be better than average because that encourages everyone to raise the standard. This is how we get better service and products, by allowing people to compete and refine their products and abilities. You can say whatever you want, but you and I both know I am only speaking the truth! Hi Anonymous if that is your real name I get that it's important to strive to be better- I just think there are ways to encourage people to perform "above average" that don't involve comparing other folks to "sheep". Thank you for allowing me to say whatever I want.
