Words Crush Wednesday – Gwyneth Paltrow Edition

Words Crush Wednesday

This week’s Words Crush Wednesday quote is both literal and figurative and it’s one of my favourites. Its origin is undetermined. Some say it’s a Chinese proverb although a version of it was used in an English novel in the 1800s but one thing that’s undebatable is its message.

When doing a figurative interpretation, its message is that it’s more meaningful and fruitful to teach someone how to do something than doing it for them.

I, however, practise this every day in a more literal sense. Before I learnt how to cook, I excelled at making reservations. However, through being autodidactic and observant of other peoples’ cooking methods, nothing gives me greater joy than feeding those I love.
