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 October 2017:

How a dream can help you to recreate

Just imagine my surprise when I discovered this strategy and it came at me like a bolt of lightning. One minute I was dreaming and the next minute I was using my dream to rejuvenate my creative juices.

The thing to remember is this: One's dream does not necessarily have to be of a particular type in order to capture one's creative juices. It really does not matter; one's dream could be anything from sad to happy, joyous to delightful, or sombre to serious.

The trick is to be able to remember your dream, store it in your memory bank, and then use the memory to kick start your creative juices.

Too often, we tend to forget our dreams but whenever we can, we should be able to capture the memory of a dream even if it means waking up and taking a few moments to write down what we have just dreamed.

I urge you to go out there and give this strategy a chance.

Good luck now!
