The tail of a lion

We learned in Pirkei Avos today that it is better to be the tail of a lion than the head of a fox.
In a goyish book of proverbs and sayings I once read, it had the following:
It's better to be the head of a fox than the tail of a lion.

I don't need to explain how shkutz-like that attitude is...
