That's my motto in my job, which is supporting faculty with our Learning Management System (LMS). I'll show them how to use it and do what they want with it, but I won't do it for them. They need to learn how to do it themselves. This approach is apparently unique at my school, so there's been push back. But many of them are now proud of their ability to use the system and brag to me how they've shown other faculty in their departments how to accomplish things with the LMS. That's when I know I've succeeded.

here's a few from random sources...

destitutus ventis, remos adhibe aka "if the wind will not serve, take to the oars"

there are two kinds of people in the world: those with guns and those that dig.

too much of anything is bad, but too much good whiskey is barely enough.

on the strength of one link in the cable dependth the might of the chain; who knows when thou mayest be tested? so live that thou barest the strain.

I liked the one with the sinking ship and something about your life serving as an example of how not to do things.
