: : I need a proverb which says that charity should be productive, not just handouts. Give a man a fish... vs. teaching him to fish, but older, preferably from the bible, Shakespeare, the Koran.....

I don't know of one offhand. The Phrase Thesaurus at this site helps with such questions. (same as link below)

Enter "charity" or "help," etc., into the box and see what you get.
