    This a way of saying that you can do your best to help someone, but unless they are prepared to be helped, you are wasting your time.

    A teacher can be the best in the world at explaining things, describing things in different ways and making the learning experience as effective as possible, but if the pupil is unwilling or unable to learn, all the teacher's best efforts won't have the desired effect.
