Give a man a fish, he eats for a day. Teach a man to fish and he sits in the boat drinking beer. :p

Give a man a fish and he will eat for a day. Teach a man to fish and he will eat for a lifetime. Teach a man to create an artificial shortage of fish and he will eat steak.
Jay Leno

Give a man a fish, and he can eat for a day. But teach a man how to fish, and he'll be dead of mercury poisoning inside of three years.
Charlie Haas

Give a man a fish, and you feed him for a day. Teach a man to fish, and you get rid of him on weekends.

Teach someone to fish and you have got someone who'll keep you company and split the cost of the gas and the beer. Make sure they know how to tell a good story. The size of the fish that you caught can be increased thereby!

Build a man a fire, and he will be warm for the rest of the night. Set a man on fire, and he will be warm for the rest of his life.

Give a man a fish and he'll eat for a day. Teach a man to fish he'll get nailed by a U.S. nuclear submarine.

I find a remarkable dearth of attributions for that quote on the internet. One site attributes it to "Confucious", but it's a voice in the wilderness that seems to have no special authority behind it, so I suspect somebody just made the attribution up.

If anybody does find who really said it, I'd be interested too.

Funny but completely unrelated to the civil rights of fish or men...or the right to bear arms.
