In Reply to: Meaning of this proverb? posted by Marina on October 12, 2006
: "the teacher opens the gate,the student has to walk through it" what is the meaning of this proverb?
It has the same meaning as "You can lead a horse to water but you can't make him drink," or
"You can send a boy to college but you can't make him think." You can teach a boy nothing unless he wishes to learn. Same deal for girls.
