#104216 - Another version...
Responding to: Erik Malund's previous message
Erik Malund said:
As Erik says,

Give a man a fish, and you feed him for one meal;
Teach a man to fish, and he can feed himself for a lifetime

yes, I "say" so, but I am quoting someone, there are many suggestions as to the original author, among them Lao Tzu who I think is the most likey.


There is a women's version of this and apt:
Give a man a fish, and you feed him for one meal;
Teach a man to fish, and he will drink beer the whole day!
