– Variations on a theme –
Give a man a fish and you feed him for a day. Teach him how to fish, and you feed him for a lifetime.
Catch a man a fish, and you can sell it to him. Teach a man to fish, and you ruin a wonderful business opportunity.
If you give a person a fish, they’ll fish for a day. But if you train a person to fish, they’ll fish for a lifetime.
