But teach them how to fish so they may eat for a lifetime.

Hmmmm...my husband just returned from a weeklong fishing expedition and I must say that if we had to rely on him for food on the table, we'd be in bad shape! His monster SUV and his bass boat are just not gettin' it done and the cost per pound caught is way out of proportion!

On the other hand there's an old Chinese proverb:

If you wish to be happy for one hour, get intoxicated.
If you wish to be happy for three days, get married.
If you wish to be happy for eight days, kill your pig and eat it.
If you wish to be happy forever ........
Learn to fish.

Carol
