“Aanhin pa ang damo kung patay na ang kabayo”… A Pilipino saying which literally means what is the use of the grass if the horse is already dead.
In real life, it can mean many deeper things.
It can mean something thats supposed to be done but its too late to do it/ Or a lost opportunity/ Or even an apology thats worthless because the harm is already done. It can be applied to many other things in our daily activities.
In love life/marriage: how can someone accept back a former lover if one of them is already engaged/committed to another one? The moral lesson of the saying: when theres a golden opportunity, grab it!
