29-33“Because you hated Knowledgeand had nothing to do with the Fear-of-God,Because you wouldn’t take my adviceand brushed aside all my offers to train you,Well, you’ve made your bed—now lie in it;you wanted your own way—now, how do you like it?Don’t you see what happens, you simpletons, you idiots?Carelessness kills; complacency is murder.First pay attention to me, and then relax.Now you can take it easy—you’re in good hands.”
