"Advice is what we seek for when we already know the answer but wish we didn"t."
-Erica Jong-

Poet, novelist, and essayist Erica Jong expresses the inner minds of the person when asking for advice. Asking for advice is searching for hope that the "right answer" we know may not in fact be right.

Most people when they come to you for advice, come to have their own opinions strengthend, not corrected.
-Josh Billings-

The Amercan humorist and lecturer Josh Billngs says that when people come for advice, what they truely want is not advice, but approval. They seek the comfort from agreement with their opinion.

Advice is given to others with a warm and caring heart. But there are times when we canot accept advice in its true intentions. Sometimes, as is mentioned in the quotes above, we only expect the words of advice to support our already made opinions. When they do not coincide, we refuse to take in the suggestions. But why not have a chance to calm down and listen to what others wish to say? Advice can be helpful.
