Or here's my take:
- Give a man a fish and you have fed him for a day. Teach a man to fish, and he'll be back the next day asking you how to clean and gut the fish.
I think that the world would be a better place if more people tried to teach their fellow man* to think
and how to learn
. You have truly equipped your brother for the world if you have taught him how to teach himself
Anyway, I think that is something we should all bear in mind, espescially in a forum like this (myself including).
"man" in the all-inclusive gender-non-specific sense of "mankind".
