Give a man a fish. He will live for one day. But every day thereafter, he will keep getting in your face to beg for another fish.
Teach a man to fish. he will be able to catch fish on his own and feed himself. And he will also be able to catch some additional fish to sell so he can buy some of the better things in life.
