Ahh, we love to give advice, almost better than speculation on people's income. How much of it do we listen to?
I'm reminded by this card the human life span isn't long enough to learn from history, but it doesn't hurt a thing to at least consider a good friends opinion. They can often see a situation more clearly than we can.
"We should be especially careful in giving advice that we would not think of following ourselves." ~ Adlai Stevenson 1900-1965
