21 thought-provoking quotes about advice

How do you feel about giving advice?

How do you feel about getting advice?

If you’re anything like me then you’re much more comfortable with giving rather than getting.

When we give advice our intentions are usually good but rarely does it come over that way to the recipient of our advice, unless it resonates with what they had in mind anyway.

So when you’re considering giving someone the benefit of your own personal wisdom, a good question to ask yourself is, “If I were to be on the receiving end of the advice I’m about to give, how would I feel and how would I react?

If you think that your reaction would be negative then perhaps you shouldn’t give that advice at all.

And remember, if you much give advice then tone matters. How you say something is just as important as what you say.

Put yourself in the other person’s shoes and treat then as you’d like to be treated. That way your advice might have a better chance of being well received.

Of course, they’re just my views dear reader. However there are plenty of people who might have different views when it comes to advice.

So here are 21 thought-provoking quotes about advice from the great and the good to offer you a more balanced view on the subject.

Quotes about advice:

  1. The best way to give advice to your children is to find out what they want and then advise them to do it. ~Harry S Truman
  2. Wall Street is the only place that people ride to in a Rolls Royce to get advice from those who take the subway. ~Warren Buffett
  3. The only thing to do with good advice is to pass it on. It is never of any use to oneself. ~Oscar Wilde
  4. Many receive advice, only the wise profit from it. ~Harper Lee
  5. Nobody can give you wiser advice than yourself. ~Marcus Tullius Cicero
  6. Wise men don’t need advice. Fools won’t take it. ~Benjamin Franklin
  7. The advice I would give to someone is to not take anyone’s advice. ~Eddie Murphy
  8. My advice to anyone with a dream is to never stop pursuing it. ~Shawn Mendes
  9. The people sensible enough to give good advice are usually sensible enough to give none. ~Eden Phillpotts
  10. The best advice I ever got was that knowledge is power and to keep reading. ~David Bailey
  11. Financial independence is paramount. My mom always says that when a woman is financially independent, she has the ability to live life on her own terms. I think that was the soundest advice that I ever got. ~Priyanka Chopra
  12. My dad said to me, ‘Work hard and be patient.’ It was the best advice he ever gave me. You have to put the hours in. ~Simon Cowell
  13. My advice to other disabled people would be, concentrate on things your disability doesn’t prevent you doing well, and don’t regret the things it interferes with. Don’t be disabled in spirit as well as physically. ~Stephen Hawking
  14. Good advice is always certain to be ignored, but that’s no reason not to give it. ~Agatha Christie
  15. My only advice is, follow your dream and do whatever you like to do the most. I chose journalism because I wanted to be in the places where history was being made. ~Jorge Ramos
  16. I never take advice from anyone more messed up than I am. ~Tom Hopkins
  17. If stock market experts were so expert, they would be buying stock, not selling advice. ~Norman Ralph Augustine
  18. A good scare is worth more to a man than good advice. ~E W Howe
  19. The best fashion advice I’d say would be just to do what makes you comfortable and what makes you feel cute, and that’s how you’re gonna look your best ’cause when you feel your best, everybody else can feel it, too. ~Ariana Grande
  20. When we ask for advice, we are usually looking for an accomplice. ~Saul Bellow
  21. You know how advice is. You only want it if it agrees with what you wanted to do anyway. ~John Steinbeck

Were these thought-provoking quotes about advice interesting to you dear reader?

If they were then perhaps they might interest others you know too?

Please share them with your friends on social media because when you share, everyone wins. If you could share them now I would be ever so grateful.

Like every blogger, I can only keep doing what I do if there are readers viewing my blog posts. So you really can help me dear reader.

15 Quotes by Betty White

Betty Marion White Ludden, known professionally as Betty White, is an American actor and comedian born in 1922.

She’s had the longest television career of any female entertainer.

Not only is she an actor, she is also one of the first women to have control both in front of and behind the camera and she is recognized as the first woman to produce a sitcom.

She is probably best known for her roles in The Mary Tyler Moore Show, The Golden Girls and, more recently, Hot in Cleveland.

However she’s had a successful career spanning more than 75 years and she’s received eight Emmy awards in various categories.

And she continues to work despite her age.

What makes her interesting for me is her positive attitude.

Whenever you hear her speak or give advice she’s always so positive and that’s a quality I admire in people.

So here are 15 quotes by Betty White to illustrate my point.

Quotes by Betty White:

  1. I just make it my business to get along with people so I can have fun. It’s that simple. ~Betty White
  2. It’s your outlook on life that counts. If you take yourself lightly and don’t take yourself too seriously, pretty soon you can find the humor in our everyday lives. And sometimes it can be a lifesaver. ~Betty White
  3. I may be a senior but so what? I’m still hot. ~Betty White
  4. I think it’s your mental attitude. So many of us start dreading age in high school and that’s a waste of a lovely life. ‘Oh… I’m 30, oh, I’m 40, oh, 50.’ Make the most of it. ~Betty White
  5. I have a two-story house and a bad memory, so I’m up and down those stairs all the time. That’s my exercise. ~Betty White
  6. The bottom line is, I’m blessed with good health. On top of that, I don’t go around thinking ‘Oh, I’m 90, I better do this or I better do that.’ I’m just Betty. I’m the same Betty that I’ve always been. Take it or leave it. ~Betty White
  7. Retirement is not in my vocabulary. They aren’t going to get rid of me that way. ~Betty White
  8. Don’t try to be young. Just open your mind. Stay interested in stuff. There are so many things I won’t live long enough to find out about, but I’m still curious about them. You know people who are already saying, ‘I’m going to be 30 – oh, what am I going to do?’ Well, use that decade! Use them all! ~Betty White
  9. I really don’t care with whom you sleep. I just care what kind of a decent human being you are. ~Betty White
  10. I’m having the time of my life and the fact that I’m still working – how lucky can you get? I’m 90 years old and still able to work as much as I do. That’s a privilege. ~Betty White
  11. I didn’t know what Facebook was, and now that I do know what it is, I have to say, it sounds like a huge waste of time. ~Betty White
  12. The audience today has heard every joke. They know every plot. They know where you’re going before you even start. That’s a tough audience to surprise, and a tough audience to write for. It’s much more competitive now, because the audience is so much more – I want to say ‘sophisticated.’ ~Betty White
  13. A lot of people think this is a goody-two-shoes talking. But we do have a tendency to complain rather than celebrating who we are. I learned at my mother’s knee it’s better to appreciate what’s happening. I think we kind of talk ourselves into the negative sometimes. ~Betty White
  14. Animals don’t lie. Animals don’t criticize. If animals have moody days, they handle them better than humans do. ~Betty White
  15. If you’re walking with your lady on the sidewalk, I still like to see a man walking street-side, to protect the lady from traffic. I grew up with that, and I hate to see something like that get lost. I still like to see that a man opens the door. I like those touches of chivalry that are fast disappearing. If I sound old-fashioned, it’s because I’m as old as I am! But it’s just polite. ~Betty White

You did? I hope so anyway.

If that is the case then please share them with your friends because when you share everyone wins.

3 hilarious short story jokes guaranteed to raise a smile

1. Getting married in Heaven:

A young Catholic couple, Patrick and Bernadette, were on their way to the church to get married. Sadly their lives were cut cruelly short by a road traffic accident just before they would have reached their destination.

Nevertheless they’d lived good and decent lives, so naturally in an instant they found themselves standing at the Pearly Gates in front of St Peter as he reviewed a clipboard to confirm their names were on the list.

As they stood there, Patrick said to St Peter, “Will it still be possible for us to get married in Heaven?

To be honest, I’m not sure”, said St Peter. “Believe it or not, this has never happened before. If you’ll bear with me, I will check it out for you.

With that St Peter disappeared.

So Patrick and Bernadette sat down on a nearby golden bench and they waited. And waited, and waited, and waited. They waited so long that a couple of months passed.

Naturally in that time they chatted about their future and the challenges of being married and the fact that many of their friends who’d married found it wasn’t always forever. Circumstances often change and relationships can suffer.

Eventually St Peter reappeared looking a little flustered.

Well”, said St Peter, “I have some good news for you both. I’m pleased to be able to tell you that you will be to get married here in Heaven.”

Oh, that’s great!” said Bernadette enthusiastically.

Patrick wasn’t quite so enthusiastic in his reaction though.

St Peter, I was just wondering”, said Patrick, “If we were to marry and things didn’t work out, would we be able to divorce in Heaven?”

St Peter’s response suggested that he was irritated by Patrick’s question, as he slammed his clipboard angrily on the ground.

St Peter, what’s the matter?” Bernadette enquired.

Oh, for Heaven’s sake!” said St Peter. “It’s taken me almost three months to find a priest here in Heaven. Do you have any idea how long it will take me to find a lawyer?

2. Age problems:

Jim was 85 years old and he’d been playing golf every single day since he’d retired from work 20 years earlier.

One day Jim arrives home from golf and he’s obviously in an agitated state.

What’s the matter dear?” his wife, Mabel enquired.

I’m going to give up golf”, Jim responded. “My eyesight is now so bad that once I hit the ball I just can’t see where it’s gone.”

Mabel can see Jim’s really upset so she tries to be as sympathetic as possible.

Oh don’t worry dear. Let me make you a nice cup of coffee. You’ll feel better after that I’m sure”, she says.

As they both sit down with the coffee, Mabel says suddenly, “Hey, I’ve got an idea. Next time you play golf you could take my brother Sid with you.

But Mabel, how will that help?” says Jim, “Sid is 98!

Yes”, says Mabel, “but he still has perfect eyesight. He can be your eyes when you play.

So Jim agrees it’s probably worth a try and he makes arrangements with Sid for the next day.

The next day Jim heads off to the country club with Sid.

At the first tee, Jim tees up with an almighty swing and he then squints down the fairway trying to see where his ball has gone.

Sid, did you see where my ball went?” asks Jim.

Sure!” says Sid. “I still have perfect eyesight.”

Jim waited momentarily, anticipating some further information from Sid but he got nothing.

So where did it go then?” asks Jim.

Sid looked at him a little confused and then said, “Where did what go?

3. One kiss:

Alice was an attractive young woman and she was shopping in a department store looking to buy material for a dress she was making.

At the fabric counter she spotted some suitable material and said to the young male clerk behind the counter, “What’s the cost of this material please?”

Well miss the price for that is just one kiss per yard,” replied the clerk, with a confident grin on his face.

That’s fine,” said Alice. “I’ll take ten yards please.”

Well the clerk couldn’t believe his luck. He quickly measured out the cloth, folded it carefully, wrapped it up, then teasingly held the package out to Alice.

She in turn accepted the package, smiled and then, pointing to the elderly man behind her, she said, “My grandpa will settle the bill.

And with that she proceeded to browse at the next counter.

15 Quotes by Dr Laura Schlessinger

For readers unfamiliar with her work, Dr Laura Schlessinger is an American talk radio host, commentator and author.

Her radio show consists mainly of her responses to callers’ requests for personal advice.

Her presentation style is a tough love, no nonsense approach, which means to some people she can be seen as controversial.

Certainly she’s a social conservative and even her own website says that her show preaches, teaches and nags about morals, values and ethics.

Nevertheless she has a loyal following and many people around the world listen to her via her podcasts.

You can judge for yourself whether it’s an approach that would appeal to you dear reader. However I think these quotes are worth a few minutes of your time.
