Reminds me of an old Chinese saying:If I give someone produce from my garden, they'll have a meal or two. If I teach someone how to garden, they'll be able to produce their own food. And no, I won't be able to teach him/her in a day . . . for awhile they'll need support. And if I begrudge someone the support they need after having taught them, I'm the one who's stupid.

If you want to be happy for a year, marry a women.
If you want to be happy for a lifetime, become a gardener."
