Give a man a fish; you have fed him for a day. Teach a man to fish; and you have fed him for a lifetime.
I thought that saying was:

Give a man a fish; you have fed him for a day. Teach a man to fish, and he and five other will complain you haven't fed him.

At least when it comes to Usenet, perlmonks and similar forum.

    And that reminds me of the quote from the Brick Top Polford character in the movie Snatch:

    If I throw a dog a bone, I don't wanna know if it tastes good or not.
