It's the double-edged sword of wisdom.

On the one hand, anyone who either has wisdom or is expected to have it is compelled, both by circumstance and by inclination, to share it.

On the other hand (as a Taoist philosopher I can't remember the name of said), it's impossible to teach wisdom because wisdom can only be understood by those who came to it themselves already. People who don't already agree with the wisdom can't understand it.

So being a dispenser of wisdom means a lot of practice butting your head against a stone wall, metaphorically speaking.
