COUNSEL
[ Also see Admonition Advice Friendship Instruction Lawyers Precepts Prudence Reproof Teaching Warnings ]

Ask a counsel of both times-of the ancient time what is best, and of the latter time what is fittest.
      - Francis Bacon

The best receipt--best to work and best to take--is the admonition of a friend.
      - Francis Bacon

When all is done, the help of good counsel is that which setteth business straight.
      - Francis Bacon

And cast
  O'er erring deeds and thoughts a heav'nly hue
    Of words, like sunbeams, dazzling as they pass'd.
      - Lord Byron (George Gordon Noel Byron)

I will adhere to the counsels of good men, although misfortune and death should be the consequence.
      - Cicero (Marcus Tullius Cicero) (often called "Tully" for short)

Counsel and conversation is a good second education, that improves all the virtue and corrects all the vice of the former, and of nature itself.
      - Lord Clarendon, Edward Hyde

Good counsels observed are chains to grace, which neglected, prove halters to strange undutiful children.
      - Thomas Fuller (1)

Harsh counsels have no effect; they are like hammers, which are always repulsed by the anvil.
      - Claude Arien Helvetius

Hasty counsels are generally followed by repentance.
      - Decimus Laberius

A man takes contradiction and advice much more easily than people think, only he will not bear it when violently given, even though it be well founded. Hearts are flowers; they remain open to the softly falling dew, but shut up in the violent downpour of rain.
      - Jean Paul Friedrich Richter (Johann Paul Richter) (used ps. Jean Paul)

Consult your friend on all things, especially on those which respect yourself. His counsel may then be useful, where your own self-love might impair your judgment.
      - Seneca (Lucius Annaeus Seneca)

Let no man presume to give advice to others that has not first given good counsel to himself.
      - Seneca (Lucius Annaeus Seneca)

Bosom up my counsel
  You'll find it wholesome.
      - William Shakespeare

I can easier teach twenty what were good to be done, than be one of the twenty to follow mine own teaching.
      - William Shakespeare

Though I may not be able to inform men more than they know, yet I may give them the occasion to consider.
      - Sir William Temple
