We know two animals, turtles and snails, which move slowly by dragging a heavy shell. They are accused of laziness. Short feet with a fleshy body being condemened to carry a house. In fact, these prisoners are being punished for their harmlessness. Were they beast , they wouldn't be in jail. Nobody looks them up. Because they are not powerful to run fast, follow, tear, and finally devour any animals. In fact, wasting time with feeling secure caused them to be unsecured. The wilder they are, the closer to a king they come. Insecurity, brutality, and seeking power and force is the key of success for turtles and snails.
Yes, exactly, I mean "look up to them". Using phrasal verbs is too difficult for a non-native English speaker. Do you agree with me?
And about "dependent clause":
can I write as the following sentence?
"Because they are not powerful to run fast,follow, tear, and finally devour any animals, nobody looks up to them."
May I ask a question here:
Do you have any expression like "Under question" in your language? for example, this matter is still under questioned.
Many thanks for your kindness and help. I learned a lot.
