Do you want my advice?

"The true secret of giving advice is, after you have honestly given it,
to be perfectly indifferent whether it is taken or not
and never persist in trying to set people right."
-Hannah Whitall Smith

One of my pet peeves
is people's need to give unsolicited advice.
I even have a rule against it in my classroom.
And while we are on this topic,
the best advice I ever received
from my mother was to take a good hard look
at anyone who gives you advice!
But if you have been asked for your advice,
Hannah's words are of great, great value.
