The Problem with Advice


Advice is what we ask for when we already know the answer
but wish we didn't.
- Erica Jong

I always pass on good advice.
It is the only thing to do with it.
It is never of any use to oneself.
- Oscar Wilde

A friend encourages your dreams and offers advice -
but when you don't follow it,
they still respect and love you.
- Doris Wild Helmering

Don't follow any advice, no matter how good,
until you feel as deeply in your spirit as you think
in your mind that the counsel is wise.
- Joan Rivers

Most people when they come to you for advice,
come to have their own opinions strengthened,
not corrected.
- Josh Billings
