Once a brother came to Theodore of Pherme, and spent three days asking him for advice. The abba did not answer and the brother went away sad. Theodore's disciple asked him, 'Abba, why is it you would not speak to him? Now 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.'
