Do you ever feel that I am spending a lot for the development of your character? I am whether you realize it or not. Do you feel self-conscious about this expenditure on your behalf?
Most children have no concept of the sacrifices their parents make for them, yet loving parents will plan to provide for their children, and save up for their education. Am I not better than fathers in this world? I knew what your growth and maturity would cost me when I first received you to myself, and I did not hesitate to accept you. To this end I committed the resources in advance to see the job done. I who have begun a good work in you will complete it.
