" You give him a fish he will eat it but if you teach one to fish you will save yourself a fish"


Does it mean the emphasis is more on saving the donor a fish or teaching a layman a life sustainable skill.


Kindly explain

I wish you had told her about it.
This one is correct because it is a wish for something that was completed in the past - past perfect.




I'm not convinced fully . Let's assume my father telling me that I should have told my mom about the tennis training tomorrow evening so that she would plan for groceries herself.: I wish you had told her about it ; about my tomorrow's training.

We often need much less than we think, and if you're anything like us you're just going to be sweating all those clothes out at the gym anyway

When preparing to travel layout all your clothes and all your money. Then take half the clothes and twice the money.


This was from SUSAN HELLER. Kindly explain the gist of her quotes as I'm unable to understand completely.

Thank you
Topic: Would not vs Did not

My mom was suspicious of vaccines hence she would never let me have them as a child.


Why is that " would " appropriate to use in the above sentence . I think "my mom didn't let me have them as a child" makes more sense.


Kindly explain.
