120. Some foolish people here, on being told by me: “Give this up,” say: “But what is this small and insignificant matter? This recluse lays too much stress on small things.” And so they do not give up that thing and they cause dissatisfaction to be nursed against me and those who do desire the training. This becomes for them a strong, solid and stout bond, a bond not easily worn away, like a thick block of wood.
