I have been trying to point out that in our lives chance may have an astonishing influence and, if I may offer advice to the young laboratory worker, it would be this – never to neglect an extraordinary appearance or happening.
It is a bit embarrassing to have been concerned with the human problem all one’s life and find at the end that one has no more to offer by way of advice than “try to be a little kinder.”
It’s a little embarrassing that after 45 years of research & study, the best advice I can give people is to be a little kinder to each other.
Parents can only give good advice or put them on the right paths, but the final forming of a person’s character lies in their own hands.
When you advise any person you should be guided by the fear of God.
He who is not impressed by sound advice lacks faith.
When you seek advice, do not withhold any facts from the person whose advice you seek.
If anybody seeks your advice, offer right and sincere advice.
Before you place your financial future in the hands of an adviser, it’s imperative that you find someone who not only makes you comfortable but whose honesty is beyond reproach.
If the reason people invest is to make money, then in seeking advice they are asking others to tell them how to make money. That idea has some element of naïveté.
Give assistance, not advice, in a crisis.
Never trust the advice of a man in difficulties.
