In ancient times there once was a lover of dragons. He was so fond of dragons that all his clothes had embroidered dragons, and his columns and pillars also had engraved dragons. His love of dragons was widely known, so one day a real dragon decided to visit this dragon lover. He poked his head into his home and dragged his long tail down the hall.
The dragon lover saw the head and was frightened out of his wits. Turning, he ran.
The real dragon finally understood that this dragon lover loved only the images of dragons but not real dragons.
Some people with interests are only superficial in their passions and at the critical moment it becomes apparent that there is no love in their hearts, and often the love is a disguise for fear.
