Give a man a fish, and he will eat for a day.  Give a man a sword, and he can chow down on the meaty marrow of evil!

Give a man a fish, and he will eat for a day. Teach a man to fish, and he will eat for a lifetime. (A commonly quoted Chinese proverb.)

I would have guessed that "there's a gamer bored in my Civic" might have mapped to "There's a hole in the bucket, Eliza, Eliza..." or "There's a sucker born every minute," but the parallels to both are kinda tenuous. 

Current most easily maps to "If you can't beat them, join them."

(I think earlier Tawodi Osdi was aiming for "Laugh, and the world laughs with you; weep, and you weep alone.")

Is Lord Elcorin's "Better to be silent and thought a fool than to speak and remove all doubt."?

You know, I never intended the latter as a proverb.  But maybe I should...

Current quote relates to "Damn the torpedoes!  Full steam ahead!"
