Advice quotes

My most important piece of advice to all you would-be writers: when you write, try to leave out all the parts readers skip.

- Elmore Leonard

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

- Anne Tyler

If I were asked to give what I consider the single most useful bit of advice for all humanity it would be this: Expect trouble as an inevitable part of life and when it comes, hold you head high, look it squarely in the eye and say, I will be bigger than you. You cannot defeat me.

- Landers, Ann

A pint of example is worth a gallon of advice


There is as much difference between the counsel that a friend giveth, and that a man giveth himself, as there is between the counsel of a friend and of a flatterer. For there is no such flatterer as is a man's self.

- Bacon, Francis

- Brendan Francis

Violence is not strength, noisiness is not earnestness. Noise is a sign of want of faith, and violence is a sign of weakness. By quiet, modest, silent, private influence we shall win. "Neither strive nor cry nor let your voice be heard in the streets," was good advice of old, and is still. I have seen many a movement succeed by it. I have seen many a movement tried by the other method of striving and crying and making a noise in the streets, but I have never seen one succeed thereby, and never shall.

- Letters and Memories. 1870.

Many receive advice, only the wise profit from it.

- Syrus, Publilius

When we ask for advice, we are usually looking for an accomplice.

I'm not a teacher: only a fellow-traveler of whom you asked the way. I pointed ahead -- ahead of myself as well as you.

- Shaw, George Bernard

It is a mistake to suppose that men succeed through success; they much oftener succeed through failures. Precept, study, advice, and example could never have taught them so well as failure has done.

Advice is least heeded when most needed.

- American Proverb

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

- Alger, William R.

Advice is very easy to give, and even easier not to follow, so I don't fool with it.

- Randy Pausch
