Give a man a fish, feed him for a day.

Teach a man how to fish, feed him for a lifetime.

Lend a man enough money to start a fish farm, feed his entire village for 3 lifetimes.

Deny him access to a pond because he should "work hard to find his own" when you know that all the others are taken, now that's just plain stupid.

Typical "zero sum" mentality.

All the jobs are taken? Wow, I didn't know that.
