Good advice is one of those injuries which a good man ought if possible to forgive, but at all events to forget at once.
October 17th - the best advice lies in the eye of the beholder, not yours
Never miss a good chance to shut up.
Sometimes the best advice you can give is not providing any at all. It’s better to be a good listener than to give advice that no one follows. When someone is having problems, we can't help but reommend a solution, to give some advice.But when people open the door of their confidence, tread carefully. You could jeopardize their trust by jumping in too fast to a conclusion. When people want to talk to you, it’s because they want to do the talking. Listen, don’t give advice, don’t take over. Just listen
Our advice is only useful in one case, when someone asks for it. Even though our friends share situations they are facing, they don’t mean they are looking for advice. Don’t jump to conclusions.
Listening can be more effective than any advice. Lending an ear can mean everything and having someone you can lean on is very comforting.
The people sensible enough to give good advice are usually sensible enough to give none.
