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

Any one can give advice, such as it is, but only a wise man knows how to profit by it.
      - Charles Caleb Colton

We ask advice, but we mean approbation.
      - Charles Caleb Colton

When we feel a strong desire to thrust our advice upon others, it is usually because we suspect their weakness; but we ought rather to suspect our own.

Remember this: they that will not be counselled cannot be helped. If you do not hear Reason, she will rap your knuckles.

Extremely foolish advice is likely to be uttered by those who are looking at the laboring vessel from the land.
      - Sir Arthur Helps

Know when to speake; for many times it brings
  Danger to give the best advice to kings.
      - Robert Herrick, Caution in Councell

To attempt to advise conceited people is like whistling against the wind.
      - Thomas Hood

Superfluous advice is not retained by the full mind.
      - Horace (Quintus Horatius Flaccus)

Whatever advice you give, be short.
      - Horace (Quintus Horatius Flaccus)

What advice you give, be short.

A good scare is worth more to a man than good advice.
      - Edgar Watson Howe

I lay very little stress either upon asking or giving advice. Generally speaking, they who ask advice know what they wish to do, and remain firm to their intentions. A man may allow himself to be enlightened on various points, even upon matters of expediency and duty; but, after all, he must determine his course of action, for himself.
      - Wilhelm von Humboldt

Advice is offensive, it shows us that we are known to others as well as to ourselves.

Advice is seldom welcome. Those who need it most like it least.
      - Samuel Johnson (a/k/a Dr. Johnson) ("The Great Cham of Literature")
