'Throw away the substance for the shadow' nghĩa là thả mồi bắt bóng.

Ví dụ
In an unlucky moment, like the fox in the fable he threw away the substance for the shadow.

She threw away the substance for the shadow, and she exchanged sterling gold for the glitter of brass.

Our aim is not to reduce living standards in any section of our people. On the contrary, our fixed purpose is to raise them for all. Our aim is not conflict but unity. Whatever extremists may say, I would urge ordinary men and women of every section of the community to put out of their minds all appeals to prejudice. But I must say this frankly - and it is my duty to say it - that unless we can show common sense all round we may by ill-considered words and deeds throw away the substance for the shadow like the dog in the fable.
