    Educating is teaching to live.
    To educate is to teach a person (how) to live.

    I think the second one is clearer.

    Give it a try.

    "Teaching is showing how to live"

    I'd prefer something "prettier", I mean I don't need the exact translation from Spanish to English, I need something with the same meaning but in different words, thinking in English..not in Spanish... could that be possible?
    Thanks!!

    Well, then, why not "Educating is teaching life" / "Educating is teaching about life"
