Give Neither Advice Nor Salt, Until You Are Asked For It.
~ English Prove
Your Friends Praise Your Abilities To The Skies, Submit To You In Argument, And Seem To Have The Greatest Deference For You But, Though They May Ask It, You Never Find Them Following Your Advice Upon Their Own Affairs Nor Allowing You To Manage Your Own, Without Thinking That You Should Follow Theirs. Thus, In Fact, They All Think Themselves Wiser Than You, Whatever They May Say.

And He Who Gives Advice Repays The Confidence Supposed To Be Placed In Him By A Seemingly Disinterested Zeal, While He Seldom Means Anything By His Advice But His Own Interest Or Reputation.
~ Francois De La Rochefoucauld
