‘Tis his own blame hath put himself from rest,
And must needs taste his folly.

– William Shakespeare

King Lear, Act 2, Scene 4. When Lear rushes out into the brewing storm, the pitiless Goneril says that it is Lear’s own fault if he is caught in it and he needs to taste his foolishness. Not a lot of compassion for the elderly Lear from his daughter!
