Good advice is always certain to be ignored, but that's no reason not to give it.

Don't try to solve serious matters in the middle of the night.

Good advice is something a man gives when he is too old to set a bad example.

Advice is like snow; the softer it falls, the longer it dwells upon, and deeper it sinks into the mind.

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

People who fight fire with fire usually end up with ashes.

There is no human problem which could not be solved if people would simply do as I advise.

It is easy when we are in prosperity to give advice to the afflicted.

Many receive advice, only the wise profit from it.

Friendship will not stand the strain of very much good advice for very long.

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.

Advice is one of those things it is far more blessed to give than to receive.

When your mother asks, 'Do you want a piece of advice?' it is a mere formality. It doesn't matter if you answer yes or no. You're going to get it anyway.

Write down the advice of him who loves you, though you like it not at present.

Most people who ask for advice from others have already resolved to act as it pleases them.

Good things, when short, are twice as good.

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

Good advice usually works best when preceded by a bad scare.

Always do right–this will gratify some and astonish the rest.

Distrust interested advice.

The only thing to do with good advice is pass it on. It is never any use to oneself.

One's first step in wisdom is to question everything – and one's last is to come to terms with everything.

Have a place for everything and keep the thing somewhere else; this is not advice, it is merely custom.

A word to the wise ain't necessary, it's the stupid ones who need the advice

If it is not right do not do it; if it is not true do not say it.

For January 2018:

Going ice skating to help energize

You would be amazed to know how going ice skating can help to energize a sagging imagination. Just think of this!

Feeling a fresh breeze race across your cheeks and play gently through your hair. Feeling the sensation of your ears tingling as you skate and the smell of freshness all around you as you glide across the ice!

Then think of this! Your arms are flailing, your skates are rubbing against the ice as you skate and you can actually hear the sound of them gripping the ice as you go! There are others skating as well; all around you and whizzing past you! All you want to do is to stay on your feet and not fall on your face!

So how do you do this? Simple! You clear your mind and you start to call on your arms and legs to help you stay upright! Soon enough you begin to relax and start to enjoy your skating activity!

Ah yes! Nothing better than going ice skating to help energize mind, body, and imagination and then the rest will soon fall into place!

Just go out there and give this a try!
