Blind bear picks corn, picks one and drops one.

Blind bear picks corn, picks one and drops one. — One of the meanings of this proverb could be… You will lose what you already have if you keep seeking for more. Take note… (Story) A bear (a bear, in Chinese culture, frequently symbolizes someone with little common sense) was picking corn and sticking the corn in his armpit. As he puts the next corn cob into his armpit, opening his arm, he drops the one he already had. Compare this Chinese proverb to, A bird in hand is worth two in the bush. (Benjamin Franklin – Poor Richard’s Almanac) (This is a rough translation from a Chinese proverb)
