Nothing Done For Show

Once a brother came to Theodore of Pherme, and spent three days asking him for advice. Theodore did not answer, and he went sadly away.

So, Theodore's disciple asked him, "Abba, why didn't you speak to him? Look, he has gone away sad."

Theodore replied, "As a matter of fact, I said nothing to him because he's only interested in getting credit by repeating what others have said to him."
