"No good deed goes unpunished."
[If you keep doing something for someone without anything in exchange they will end up punishing you, eg making you wrong, running you down, breaking your friendship etc One of those unwritten laws. Always get something in return however small.]
What is offered for free is dangerous – it usually involves either a trick or a hidden obligation. What has worth is worth paying for.
