Give a man a ...

In honour of the latest Dresden book quoting Terry Pratchett;

Build a man a fire and he's warm for a day
Set a man on fire and he's warm for the rest of his life


this is your opportunity to share your Tao of Pratchett with us.

Re: Give a man a ...

Wait, are we doing "Give a man a..." quotes or Sir Terry quotes?

Re: Give a man a ...

Why do you want to close it? It could be fun.

Give a man a car, he'll able to drive.
Drive over him with a car, and he'll never have to worry about driving again.
