    Default "He that lacks a tool can't give out."



    "He that lacks a tool can't give out", "One can't give what one has not" and
    "You cannot give what you donít have" have the same meaning, haven't they?

    The first makes no sense. The second and third do mean the same thing. The third is the most natural.
