Doug Goff said...

If you think about it that quote is so true. I don't know how many times I have given people advice that they haven't followed and you find yourself saying, "I told you so!"

Susan Erickson said...

So true...when my parents gave me advice as a kid...I ALWAYS did the opposite.

MJ said...

Unsolicited advice...

My specialty.

Bob said...

Brahm said...

So very true, great quote!

I try not to give advice (well almost never), as then those people tend to give me advice, and most of the time I do not want o hear it....

So true...people are always going to do what they want to...no matter how good your advie is.

Gropius said...

Good one! It's funny, no matter what comes out of Jack's mouth, it has the same effect. His manner is so powerful, all you can do is sit back and think "wow"...I mean "what?"

The Daily Connoisseur said...

Ugh. So true!

robertga99 said...

He's right! The best advice is just to listen and not put your two cents in. People will always do what they want anyway.

Ray's Cowboy said...

Ha ha.

Jack is right? No one ever listens to my advice. I never listen to anyone elses ... Still, it passes the time of day. Advice and a cup of tea. :)

A few years ago I was watching Anne Meara on a talk show. The host asked her for advice on something and Anne said,

"I never give anyone advice. I think it's very condescending to give people advice. If someone asks me for advice, the most I'll do is say 'this is what worked for me when I was in a similar situation, but it may not work for you.'"

I have always remembered that and now I am the same as Anne Meara when it comes to giving advice.

Michael Guy said...

I've found 'free' advice is generally followed by "I told you so..."

LORDPATRICK said...

I'm so often asked for my advice that I've I become very slow to give any. I usually ask, "Well, what would you really like to do?" And then say, "Well do it"!

Rick said...

That's a great quote...so true.

Mark said...

I always listen carefully to Dr. Phil and do the opposite.

Suzette Saxton said...

LOL! Maybe the best advice is that which is not given. ;)
