Teach a man to fish? This first made print in Victorian England:
'"I don't suppose even Caron could tell you the difference between material and spiritual," said Max, shrugging his shoulders. "He certainly doesn't practise his precepts, but I suppose the Patron meant that if you give a man a fish he is hungry again in an hour. If you teach him to catch a fish you do him a good turn. But these very elementary principles are apt to clash with the leisure of the cultivated classes. Will Mr. Bagginal now produce his ticket—the result of favour and the unjust sub-division of spiritual environments?" said Du Parc, with a smile.'
(Wikipedia quote of: Anne Isabella Thackeray Ritchie (1837–1919) in her novel, Mrs. Dymond (1885), the origin of the saying)
The latest adaption quoted by Agang is anything other than Victorian Era:
Teach a man to fish,so that if he gets hungry in your absence, he can still eat. Not give him fish when it suits you. - SlyPod #CitizenSONA— AgangSA (@AgangSA) February 23, 2014
