When I advise or recommend to you,
and you discard my words or don’t attend,
no longer will I quibble or pursue:
ignore and I won’t bore you any more.
But nor am I responsible. I’ll lend
and then return what you decline to learn.
That sets me free. And likewise this is true –
if what I pen will bother or offend,
why should I care when readers are so few?

(Magic 9)
