If a man knows where to get advice, it is as though he could supply it himself.
Johann Wolfgang Von Goethe

Ninety percent of all human wisdom is the ability to mind your own business.
Robe rt A. Heinlein

One can advise comfortably from a safe port.
Friedrich Von Schiller

Harsh counsels have no effect; they are like hammers which are always repulsed by the anvil.
Helvetius

If we want to utilize in the proper way and to the fullest extent the products of a man's intellect, we must develop that part of man's being that is his heart and spirit.
Ferdinand Pecora

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.
David Seabury

He is an incorrigible ass who will never listen to others.
Baltasar Gracian

When you talk, you repeat what you already know; when you listen, you often learn something.
Jared Sparks

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

Never seem wiser or more learned than the company you are with. Treat your learning like a watch and keep it hidden. Do not pull it out to count the hours, but give the time when you are asked.
Lord Chesterfield

One cool judgment is worth a thousand hasty counsels.
Woodrow Wilson

To accept good advice is but to increase one's own ability.
Goethe

Many receive advice, only the wise profit from it.
Syrus

None is so perfect that he does not need at times the advice of others.
Baltasar Gracian

He that gives good advice builds with one hand; he that gives good counsel and example builds with both; but he that gives good admonition and bad example builds with one hand and pulls down with the other.
Francis Bacon

Have you learned lessons only of those who admired you, and were tender with you, and stood aside for you? Have you not learned great lessons from those who rejected you, and braced themselves against you, or disputed the passage with you?
Walt Whitman
