This quote is extremely "valid." Sicinius and the patrician politician Menenius are conversing about the citizens, and in this section we see an exceelent use of animal imagery. They compare the people (commoners) to wolves and cite Coriolanus both lamb and bear. Animals instictively know where danger lies and what isn't obvious is taught through experience by the laws of nature. Coriolanus knows how to play each of the roles he's assigned and utilizes them to his own benefit.
