You can provide others with good advice, but the decision to act or take advantage of the situation always lies with the individual.
“Don’t give advice. It will come back and bite you in the [butt]. Don’t take anyone’s advice. So, my advice to you is to be true to yourself and everything will be fine.” – Ellen DeGeneres
“It is very difficult to live among people you love and hold back from offering them advice.” – Anne Tyler
“People who ask our advice almost never take it. Yet we should never refuse to give it, upon request, for it often helps us to see our own way more clearly.” – Brendan Francis
