The way I learned it:
Give a man a fish and you feed him for a day;
Teach a man to fish and he'll spend his life savings on fishing tackle.
But seriously, in this one man's opinion, there is more grace available here at PM for those in need of a clue than there is in most places on the web. You are required to take advantage of it by reading the links, but it's generally worth the result. Which leads to the equivalent:
Give a man a Perlish App, and he'll have a solution for the problem at hand;
Teach a man to use PM, and he'll spend the rest of his life perusing the Monastery (and CPAN).
