There is an important speech I hope that you discussed in detail "It is better to teach me fishing, than to give me that Fish from the sea".. Workmanship in the hand is better than money, because it is the means by which you get the money, and more you prove yourself. What do you think?

I believe you are right taheraa. People need to learn how to work. Training and education helps to build skills and knowledge that one can use for the rest of his or her life. This is how one can learn to be productive. It is not always easy to find out how to make more money, but having a wealth of knowledge is more important. A mind is invaluable and learning how it can influence ideas and create concepts will bring us far.

Yes, adforme:d You are right, and i can add that the problem is not getting money, the prblem in the way that it can earn this money. This method must be sound and satisfactory and classed by God. In order to succeed in our business, it is imperative that the ethics associated with the education and skill.

I am in agreement with you. Earning money should be done with integrity. An honest living is a good example.

Thanks adforme: I know many people have a lot of money however, complain about the need for, and other people have little money and thank God for what gave them and feel happy. It must be with the knowledge and experience the mastermind and contentment and thankful heart to God who gives and kicking all the creatures of the the affairs of their lives. Money without the mind and morality may destroy the owner and be the source of unhappiness to him.

This is an old Chinese proverb, origin unknown. I don't know where you are getting your version from ha ha. It goes "give a man a fish you feed him for a day, teach a man to fish you feed him for a lifetime" Totally agree. I actually just told my child this very quote the other day. I don't know about proving yourself, I don't quite get your meaning but this proverb is self explanatory, it simply means it is better to give a man a skill so he can continue to provide for himself for life than to give him charity for only one day and have that be the end.

Hi, ForSouls: You are right, you are getting the right version, thanks for your help. But what i mean that people need to give and learn them a workmanship in their hand more than easy money help. In most cases, it is easy for people to help others by giving them money. But now there are some charities that are trying to help others by work projects for them and teach them on how to manage it, to generate a profit for them and give them the right to a decent life.

Yes, That's right, representing the following statement, easy come easy go. What we get from the money by hard work, it is hard to spend in the ports that hurt us. Who does not get tired of receiving the money does not know its value

Forsouls is right , that was the original meaning of the speech. You better teach someone how to take care of himself instead of helping him in a way he will come ask for a help again. You , taheraa , are also right , it is better to have work skill you can use to take care of yourself instead of having just the money. The money cannot help you once it's gone. The work skill help if you use it to earn money. Btw , it is good to see you are back mylotting , where have you been for so long ?

Thanks stringer: you are right, helping someone how to take care of himself, so depend on himself in his living and standing in his feet on solid ground, and earn his money from by his hand. My best regards
