Advice: Part Two...

Thank you for all your comments on yesterday's post! Though the beginning of this quote speaks about giving advice to men, the part that really spoke to me was the bit about the responsibility that one takes on when giving advice to others. It is so easy to rattle off whatever I think to another without really thinking about what I'm saying or the consequences that my words may bring. It almost reminds me of Jane Austen's "Emma."

I agree, it is quite a responsibility and our words do have consequences.

"If wisdom's ways you wisely seek,
five things observe with ease,
To whom you speak,
Of when you speak,
And how, and when and where."
Little House on the Prairie

Your post reminded me of this :o)
