Advice

Erica Jong:

Advice is what we ask for when we already know the answer but wish we didn’t.

Lady Mary Wortley Montagu:

I give my self sometimes admirable advice but I am incapable of taking it.

Marie Dressler:

No vice is so bad as advice.

Ayn Rand:

It is not advisable, James, to venture unsolicited opinions. You should spare yourself the embarrassing discovery of their exact value to your listener.

Carolyn Wells:

Advice—is a habit-forming drug. You give a dear friend a bit of advice today, and next week you find yourself advising two or three friends, and the week after, a dozen, and the week following, crowds!

Anne Tyler:

It is very difficult to live among people you love and hold back from offering advice.

Rosamond Marshall:

A woman in love never takes advice.

Flannery O’Conner:

I am very handy with my advice and then when anybody appears to be following it, I get frantic.

Selma Lagerlof:

Strange, when you ask anyone’s advice you see yourself what is right.

Jane Frame:

“For your own good” is a persuasive argument that will eventually make man agree to his own destruction.

Edwina Currie:

The strongest possible piece of advice I would give to any young woman is: Don’t screw around, and don’t smoke.
