| You had there the occasion to enlight me and teach me.

  I did seize the occasion, but you were both unenlightenable and
  unteachable because you had set your mind to the matters about
  which you could be enlightened and taught.

  A student who knows so well what he is to be taught that he rejects
  everything that is not to his liking is a contradiction in terms,
  for it is what you do not know that you need be taught.

  You had the occasion to become enlightened and taught, but remain
  befuddled by your own preconceptions.  Such was your choice, and
  such it shall be.  I wish you better luck in your next life, as the
  one you have wasted so far will require many years to salvage.

  A hint, though: Thinking is not the crime you believe it is.

Act from reason, and failure makes you rethink and study harder.
Act from faith, and failure makes you blame someone and push harder.
