A Bit Of Advice on 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, Philadelphia Quaker: the letters of Hannah Whitall Smith,  (University of California, Harcourt, Brace, 1950), 146.
