To profit from good advice requires more wisdom than to give it.

To ask for advice is in nine cases out of ten to ask for flattery.

No one wants advice - only corroboration.

It's too late to ask advice when danger comes.

When healthy, we all have wonderful advice for the sick.

When a man seeks your advice he generally wants your praise.

Nobody can give you wiser advice than yourself.

The advice of the elders to young men is very apt to be as unreal as a list of the hundred best books.

Beware of him who gives thee advice according to his own interests.

My advice to you is not to inquire why or whither, but just enjoy your ice cream while it’s on your plate - that’s my philosophy.

We give advice by the bucket, but take it by the grain.

The thing to do when you're impatient is to turn to your left and ask advice from your death. It is always on our left, as at arm’s length. An immense amount of pettiness is dropped if your death makes a gesture to you, or if you have the feeling that your companion is there watching you. How can anyone feel so important when we know that death is stalking us? Death is the only wise advice that we have. When we feel that everything is going wrong, turn to your death and ask if that is so. Your death will tell you that you're wrong. That nothing really matters outside its touch. Ask death's advice and drop the cursed pettiness that belongs to men that live their lives as if death will never tap them... It doesn't matter what the decision is. Nothing could be more or less serious than anything else. In a world where death is the hunter there are no small or big decisions. There are only decisions we make in the face of our inevitable death.

The test of a successful person is not an ability to eliminate all problems before they arise, but to meet and work out difficulties when they do arise. We must be willing to make an intelligent compromise with perfection lest we wait forever before taking action. It's still good advice to cross bridges as we come to them.

He who can take advice is sometimes superior to him who can give it.

All through my life the counsel to depend on prayer has been prized above almost any other advice I have ever received. It has become an integral part of me, an anchor, a constant source of strength and the basis of my knowledge of things divine.

Old men delight in giving good advice as a consolation for the fact that they can no longer provide bad examples.

Whatever advice you give, be short.

Good advice is one of those injuries which a good man ought, if possible, to forgive, but at all events to forget at once.

Whatever advice you give, be short.

It takes a great man to give sound advice tactfully, but a greater to accept it graciously.
