What does that sound like to you?' -Craig Robinson

I feel arrogant trying to give people advice. -Jeremy Irvine

When I do a cooking class now, I tell people that the most important part is to read the recipe many times so you know what you're doing. What I don't tell them, though, is that sometimes I do parties where I'm rushing so much I don't have time to follow my own advice. -Wolfgang Puck

The best piece of advice someone has ever given me was 'do it scared.' And no matter if you're scared, just go ahead and do it anyway because you might as well do it scared, so it will get done and you will feel so much better if you step out of your comfort zone. -Sherri Shepherd

One of my biggest flaws is I don't take advice. -Gary Vaynerchuk

The reason we love our parents is because they loved us first. Every single company should take this advice. -Gary Vaynerchuk

If you don't put 99 percent of yourself into the writing, there will be no publishing career. There's the writer and there's the author. The author – you don't ever think about the author. Just think about the writer. So my advice would be, find a way to not care – easier said than done. -Andre Dubus III

I was brought up in a very religious household and did a lot of praying throughout a big part of my life and always thought of God as being not only a powerful father figure and the ruler of all time and dimension but also as a friend with whom I could chat and ask questions to and get advice from. -Paul Feig

My advice to all interviewers is: Shut up and listen. It's harder than it sounds. -Errol Morris

My advice would be not to write until after 35. You need some experience, and for life to knock you about a bit. Growing up is so hard you probably won't have much emotion to spare anyway. -Joanna Trollope

People call me and ask me for advice all the time. On an elevator they tell me their problems. I think it's in part because I'm Italian so I'm emotionally available and I have a friendly persona. -Joyce DeWitt

I never know how to give advice to a writer because there's so much you could say, and it's hard to translate your own experience. But of course, I always try. The main thing that I usually end up saying is to read a lot. To read a great deal and to learn from that. -Sue Monk Kidd

Sure, I could give advice; I could, say, travel the world, listen to music. But all I can really say is do something you want to do and do it well. And if you want to be a choreographer, then you have to make dances. -Mark Morris

I love giving people advice on what to do with their books, but I don't really know how a Kindle Single gets covered. -Sloane Crosley

So, my advice to young scientists is, think critically about your work; probably don't blab unnecessarily. -Peter Agre

My advice is never let a publicist call you a 'visionary.' I've hung out with the visionaries at the famed Xerox Palo Alto Research Center. I've been a successful Silicon Valley entrepreneur. I wouldn't touch 'visionary' with a 10-foot pole. -Robert Metcalfe

Well, for people who want to write best sellers, the best advice I can give is to say that the novel has to engage the reader emotionally. -Ken Follett

If I had even the tiniest scrap of advice to give to a young actor who was figuring out how to audition, I would say don't memorize the script… The reality about auditions is that 98 percent of the results has to do with what you are, not with what you did in the audition. -Wallace Shawn

The best piece of advice that my mother gave me is to never have a plan B. She told me to stick to plan A because if you have a plan B you will inevitably fall back on it. -Zoe Tapper

Be careful about the advice you give, especially to your children. -Andrew Davies

There's always a miasma of misinformation emerging from the higher education sector as to which are the 'best' courses to take. My advice would always be to ignore the perceived wisdom and look for the most reliable evidence on the ground. -David Puttnam

There were times when there were riots in Africa, demonstrations against the IMF because of the policy advice they were giving, the conditionalities they were imposing, and the difficulties that arose out of the implementation of those conditionalities. -Jakaya Kikwete

Listen to advice from people who have been there and done that. It is so hard to believe that when you are young, but parents, mentors, teachers, they can all be so valuable when it comes to advice. -Lauren Conrad

I don't think I have the right to give someone advice when I don't know them. -Leona Lewis

My dad is such a good man. You know how when you are a child you think your dad is invincible? Well, I still think that – he is so wise and everything I do I ask my dad's advice about first. -Leona Lewis

The advice I would give to girls from Eastern backgrounds who are interested in the arts is that it is always beneficial to get your academic studies out of the way before going into the competitive world of the arts. -Nadia Ali

I'm not an actor who appears on the stage and gives people advice on how to live or what to do and entertains them. It is not my specialty. -Vagit Alekperov

My advice to young actors is probably to do some theatre; definitely do that. I keep running into these actors who have never been on stage, and it's invaluable for an actor. What you will learn about yourself is huge. -Yul Vazquez

One gets the impression that Elvis Presley does what his business advisors think will be most profitable. My advice to them: Put Elvis Presley in the studio with a bunch of good, contemporary rockers, lock the studio up, and tell him he can't come out until he's done made an album that rocks from beginning to end. -Jon Landau

Recently my publicist asked me for a college photo, and I realize how chubby I looked. I know this sounds totally shallow, but my advice is don't fall prey to the freshmen fifteen! -Cecily von Ziegesar

The influence of a science adviser is only as good as ears open to that science advice. -Nina Fedoroff

I don't give investment advice. -Craig McCaw

I make a point to never, ever point out my physical flaws… this is advice I give to women as often as I can. People don't notice the things we see in ourselves that we hate, so why direct them to it? -Dita Von Teese

Since women ask me about male motives all the time, I can offer a bit of advice. If you feel like you're going to get hurt then you shouldn't be there in the first place. That's the way I look at relationships. -Chris Noth

On the day my daughter was born, I started writing a book for her. The plan was that, over the course of her life, I'd fill it with advice on how to be a strong woman.

One of the first pieces of advice I was ever given, on my first job was, you should always buy something to treat yourself to say well done for getting the job! However I've not followed on that through yet… I've always wanted a tattoo, something to mark my experience. -Sam Claflin

Show off your own style and uniqueness to stand out. That's the advice I'd give to people getting started online now. -Conor Maynard

The experienced writer says to the anguished novice: 'Just do it; get something, anything, on to the screen or page, just establish a flow of words, and criticise them later.' You give this advice but can't always take it. -Hilary Mantel

I've received many good pieces of advice throughout my life. -Irene Rosenfeld

The only really good piece of advice I have for my students is, 'Write something you'd never show your mother or father.' And you know what they say? 'I could never do that!' -Lorrie Moore

The single best piece of advice I give to aspiring writers is to always write about things that they know.

I try to take my own advice. -D. J. MacHale

I received the best advice for running I ever heard: 'You're not going to win, so just relax. If it feels like work, you're running too hard.' -Christopher McDougall

My advice for writers is to get a good day job. It takes the pressure off writing if you have a job that pays the bills. -Abraham Verghese

My best advice to actors is if you love acting, do it every chance you get. Success does not mean success. All that matters is whether or not you're doing your best to entertain. The way this business works is all about luck and timing. -Matthew Gray Gubler

My biggest advice for girls – and this is something that I wish I could have known when I was younger – is to have thick skin. It's something that you definitely develop when you get older, but when I first started, I was so obsessed with pleasing everybody. I wanted everybody to like me and to like my songs. -Kate Voegele

My advice to new artists is to embrace a broader concept of timelessness than vintage or retro. -Brandi Carlile

My advice to aspiring writers of fantasy trilogies or series is that each book needs two main plots. There's the 'big story', the over-arching grand plot of the entire series, and there is the complete-in-itself, one-book plot. -Juliet Marillier

A note of caution: We can never achieve goals that envy sets for us. Looking at your friends and wishing you had what they had is a waste of precious energy. Because we are all unique, what makes another happy may do the opposite for you. That's why advice is nice but often disappointing when heeded. -Marcus Buckingham

People used to ask me for advice, and I'd say, 'Please, don't ask me!' Yes, I did economics at Oxford, but that's not the same as having a broad knowledge of personal finance. -Sophie Kinsella

There's never a bad time to put earplugs in. They're the kind of thing you can reject as a bit lame, but somebody told me to do start wearing earplugs and it turned out to be great advice. -Ned Beauman

There is a time to provide advice and offer an opinion, and there is a time not to. Don't be too quick to offer unsolicited advice. It certainly will not endear you to people. -Harvey Mackay

When advice is freely given, the receiver is free to use it as he or she sees fit. -Harvey Mackay

Seeking an acquisition from the start is more than just bad advice for an entrepreneur. For the entrepreneur it leads to short term tactical decisions rather than company-building decisions and in my view often reduces the probability of success. -Vinod Khosla

Never take advice from anyone in a tie. They'll bankrupt you. Don't ask a general for advice on war, and don't ask a broker for advice on money. -Nassim Nicholas Taleb

A pick-up artist gave me a good piece of advice: the three most important things in a relationship are honesty, trust and respect, and if you don't have those, you don't have love. -Neil Strauss

It's better to spend a lot on a getup you love than a fraction of that on something, or even five of those somethings, that you'll never bother to take out of the shopping bag. By the way, this advice also applies to discount love interests. And half-price sushi. -Patricia Marx

When you're writing fiction or poetry… it really comes down to this: indifference to everything except what you're doing… A young writer could do worse than follow the advice given in those lines. -Raymond Carver

The most helpful piece of advice that I could give to anybody is to select a charity, or create a charity, that you really feel passionate about and if you do, don't give up. -Evelyn Lauder

The reason people need advice on using social media is that they're a much more complex and nuanced way to communicate than a conversation or email. -Alexis Ohanian

Don't take too much advice. -Ben Silbermann

A lot of DJs who started the same time as me, they are not to be seen anymore. And I get so much love and respect from the young DJs, and some of them look up to me or ask me for advice. I am almost like the mentor. -Tiesto

So many organizations have a mentoring arm, but they don't really do it. Their idea of mentoring a kid is giving them general advice. But what they need to do is read with children. -Walter Dean Myers

The best advice comes from people who don't give advice. -Matthew McConaughey

My mother always gives the best advice. When I left Puerto Rico to pursue my dreams, she always supported me and said to me, 'I'm never going to cut your wings, so don't let anyone else do that to you.' That has been my philosophy through life. I want to share that valuable lesson with my little girl someday. -Roselyn Sanchez

One of the first pieces of advice I was ever given, on my first job was, 'You should always buy something to treat yourself to say, 'Well done for getting the job!' -Sam Claflin

Style advice? Always wear clothes… that are… clean, for starters. An added bonus if it is pressed as well. Unless you are wearing clothes that are supposed to look rumpled. -Steve Carell

One of the best pieces of advice I ever got was from a horse master. He told me to go slow to go fast. I think that applies to everything in life. We live as though there aren't enough hours in the day but if we do each thing calmly and carefully we will get it done quicker and with much less stress. -Viggo Mortensen

My first book was published without any editorial advice. Nobody said, 'You might do this or that,' or 'Why don't we see more of this.' I merely took the book and published it. -James Salter

Along the way, I've had different advice from different music producers. I've been told to tone it down, that the quiet parts of my voice are appealing and there's harshness to the loud part of my voice. -Patty Griffin

My advice is, if you are going to go on 'X Factor,' you have to know who you are as an artist. -Rebecca Ferguson

I'm often asked how I write books, but I don't think my approach is suitable for everyone. If I walked into a creative writing class, all I could say to them was 'I tend to make it up as I go along.' I'm not sure that's brilliant advice. -Ian Rankin

My dad said to me, 'Work hard and be patient.' It was the best advice he ever gave me. You have to put the hours in. -Simon Cowell

I got good advice once. Someone said to me: 'Live in your money rather than look at it.' -Simon Cowell

If I could give my teenaged self any advice, it would be 'Calm down!' -Zooey Deschanel

Mind you, physical training doesn't necessarily mean going to an expert for advice. One doesn't have to make a mountain out of a molehill. Get out in the fresh air and walk briskly – and don't forget to wear a smile while you're at it. Don't over-do. Take it easy at first and build on your effort day by day. -Douglas Fairbanks

We were a family that made our Halloween costumes. Or, more accurately, my mother made them. She took no suggestions or advice. Halloween costumes were her territory. She was the brain behind my brother's winning girl costume, stuffing her own bra with newspapers for him to wear under a cashmere sweater and smearing red lipstick on his lips. -Ann Hood

Some of the best advice I've had comes from junior officers and enlisted men. -Chester W. Nimitz

In the whole course of our work at the theatre we have been, I may say, drenched with advice by friendly people who for years gave us the reasons why we did not succeed… All their advice, or at least some of it, might have been good if we had wanted to make money, to make a common place of amusement. -Lady Gregory

My advice to American filmmakers is to marry a European. I'm not kidding. Otherwise they don't qualify for international co-production treaties. -Jeremy Thomas

Anyone who reads advice books about romance has one problem to begin with: bad taste in literature. -Roger Ebert

The advice I would give to someone is to not take anyone's advice. -Eddie Murphy

His track record of pragmatism, depth and candor all speak to a person who would find the Tea Party simplistic, opportunistic and misguided.

When you have an attorney giving you advice, it would be nice to know what their financial relationship is to the advice. -Lowell Bergman

I have used Twitter for so many things, from places to stay, places to go, things to do, things I need, medical advice, you name it. Especially when I'm on tour, it really feels like I'm being taken care of by half a million people. It is like having a mom. -Amanda Palmer

The best advice I ever got came from my mother, Estee Lauder: She believed that if you had something good to say, you should put it in writing. But if you had something bad to say, you should tell the person to his or her face. -Leonard Lauder

I was very fond of Princess Diana. She used to have me over to lunch to ask my advice. I'd give her good advice, and she'd say: 'I entirely agree. Paul, you're so right.' Then she'd go and do the opposite. -Paul Johnson

When it comes to portfolios, my personal advice is for anyone who can, put money into forestry or farmland. Long term, you would probably never come near their returns in the stock market. In the world that I see, land is golden. -Jeremy Grantham

I'm reasonably headstrong about what I believe in, and what I go for, and I've got fantastic people around me who give me great support and advice. -Prince William

I create offbeat advice; I don't follow it. I rarely take third-party advice on my investments. -Mark Cuban

I don't want to give advice to people about their religious beliefs, but I do think that it's not smart to bet against the power of science to figure out the natural world. It used to be, a thousand years ago, that if you wanted to explain why the moon moved through the sky, you needed to invoke God. -Sean M. Carroll

If I can give you any advice, it's this: every hour that you spend sat on the couch doing nothing, put it to good use, because when you have kids, an hour is like a lifetime. -Noel Gallagher

My advice today, to established acts and new-coming acts, is the same advice I'd give to myself: pause for a minute, and really think about 'What is your goal? Where do you see yourself?' -Trent Reznor

I'm afraid the parenting advice to come out of developmental psychology is very boring: pay attention to your kids and love them. -Alison Gopnik

For me, as far as skin, I'm a big advocate of facials. And I moisturize. And I read my magazines. I listen to good advice from people who really know, and I try to watch what I eat. -Eva Longoria

I'm not pretending I can give advice to every single person or every single couple for every situation; I'm making the point that we are not going to get to equality in the workforce before we get to equality in the home. Not going to happen. -Sheryl Sandberg

People think that women don't negotiate because they're not good negotiators, but that's not it. Women don't negotiate because it doesn't work as well for them. Women have to say, 'I really add a lot of value, and it's in your interest to pay me more.' I hate that advice, but I want to see women get ahead. -Sheryl Sandberg

You know how advice is. You only want it if it agrees with what you wanted to do anyway. -John Steinbeck

My advice is don't keep asking yourself if you can do something. Just get out there and do it. You can really surprise yourself. -Roz Savage

Economists have allowed themselves to walk into a trap where we say we can forecast, but no serious economist thinks we can. You don't expect dentists to be able to forecast how many teeth you'll have when you're 80. You expect them to give good advice and fix problems. -Tim Harford

My best advice is to not start in PowerPoint. Presentation tools force you to think through information linearly, and you really need to start by thinking of the whole instead of the individual lines. -Nancy Duarte

The only foreign policy advice I heard from China was when they said to Sudan, 'Don't go back to war.' That's all they said. They didn't push anything else. -Emmanuel Jal

When I meet with the founders of a new company, my advice is almost always, 'Do fewer things.' It's true of partnerships, marketing opportunities, anything that's taking up your time. The vast majority of things are distractions, and very few really matter to your success. -Evan Williams

I don't take investment advice from wealth managers. I have grown several businesses from scratch and amassed many millions from my publishing empire – why would I take advice from someone who has never experienced that? -Felix Dennis

Every day the choristers of the social web chirp their advice about openness and trust; craigslist follows none of it, and every day it grows. -Gary Wolf

I never give anyone advice: it can backfire horribly. In the 1950s, Eric Morecambe told Ken Dodd to get his teeth fixed. But those teeth turned out to be one of Dodd's big selling points. -Paul Merton

The closest person in the industry to me who is like a big brother is Tyrese. He gives me a lot of good advice. We both do the same things. We're both from the same background. -Marques Houston

God has been my number one inspiration. I also look up to Will Smith and Jamie Fox who are also personal friends of mine. They give me great career advice. I would also include Chris Stokes, as a filmmaker and music producer. I've been working with him since I was eight. -Marques Houston

I laugh at it now, but one time I had an agent tell me I would never work in TV if I didn't get a nose job. People tell you to change yourself to fit into the L.A. scene, but the advice usually doesn't make any sense. The next agent told me my nose was great! -Amanda Righetti

The worst beauty advice that I have ever taken has been from people who have told me that sunscreen isn't necessary. Not true! -Amanda Schull

I always try to be a trend setter. That's what I always tell young people when I'm giving them advice. To go with their heart and don't follow the trends. -Teena Marie

I still take advice from my mum on what clothes look good on me. I used to listen to her a lot more, but I've started to choose my own things from time to time. -Rafael Nadal

Actors don't generally go asking other actors for advice too much, but I'll take suggestions wherever I can. -Matt Dillon

Trying to keep up with health advice can feel like surfing the Net for weather forecasts: what you find is always changing, often contradictory and rarely encouraging. -Julian Baggini

My mom is just so good with fashion! She always tells me what looks good, what doesn't look good, and she gives me great advice. -G. Hannelius

My only advice is don't tattoo some guy's name on yourself. Ever. I've done it twice. Twice! I'm in the process of getting both removed. It's the most painful thing imaginable. -Diora Baird

I created a successful outdoor youth festival – the Liverd festival – against all good advice. It was a great way to explore and investigate social sculptures. Having that as my kind of studio, outside of a museum or precious white-cube gallery, that was a kind of education. -Natalie Jeremijenko

I don't use 'always do this,' 'never say that' and I never give advice because I'm not the end-all, be-all authority. -Kevyn Aucoin

I think the only advice I can give you on how to live your life well is, first off, remember… it's not the things we do in life that we regret on our deathbed, it is the things we do not. -Randy Pausch

If I could only give three words of advice, they would be, 'Tell the truth.' If I got three more words, I'd add, 'All the time.' -Randy Pausch

Looking back on high school, I just remember specific scenarios and thinking, wow, that was such a big deal at the time, but right now it feels like it never even happened. So I guess if I can give any advice, I would just say that everything will pass, and it'll feel like it was a big deal over nothing. -Nina Dobrev

It's a good community, country music, because we get the chance to sit down and… me and Tim McGraw spend a lot of time. Me and Kenny Chesney had the opportunity to spend a lot of time together. It's been a lot of great advice through the years. -Luke Bryan

As a writer, you have to first of all write what you want to. Listen to advice, by all means, but don't get bogged down in it. -Joe Abercrombie

My advice to new actors is: Don't be lazy. Go after what you desire. Don't heed the commonplace advice that is meant to discourage you. If you want it, go and get it. Be willing to work hard, and be patient. Be kind to yourself. -Judith Hoag

Real Texans don't want any woman to die of cancer because she can't get decent health care or medical advice. Real Texans don't want any woman to lose control of her life because she can't get birth control. -Wendy Davis

I think it's very important to have a feedback loop, where you're constantly thinking about what you've done and how you could be doing it better. I think that's the single best piece of advice: constantly think about how you could be doing things better and questioning yourself. -Elon Musk

My advice for young Latinas interested in pursuing a career in Hollywood is to make sure you love to perform and make sure you get the training you need. -Maria Canals Barrera

I think the best advice I ever got about acting was from my dad, which was, 'If they don't buy the fish on the first toss, throw it back in the wagon and go to the second house.' Which is like an old Jewish fishmongers' story about how you become a successful fish monger. -Lin Shaye

My advice to a new husband is nothing more than 'husbands, love your wives.' And 'love your wife as Christ has loved the church.' Never forget that you are Christ's representative in serving your wife. -J. I. Packer

The best fashion advice I'd say would be just to do what makes you comfortable and what makes you feel cute, and that's how you're gonna look your best 'cause when you feel your best, everybody else can feel it, too. -Ariana Grande

I even have nephews who make music, my daughter makes music. I don't know what advice to give them these days. It's really a tough industry to break into. -Martin Gore

The best advice I've received is to be yourself. The best artists do that. -Frank Gehry

I think the best advice I give is to try not to write. Try not to overwrite, try not to make it sound too good. Just use your own voice. Use your own style of putting it down. -Elmore Leonard

One piece of advice that always stuck in my mind is that people should be respected and trusted as people, not because of their position or title. -Herb Kelleher

My dad probably gave me the best advice growing up. I think it's really just keeping your cool in situations and learning to balance everything. -Cassie Steele

Some of the best advice I've gotten was from William Hurt and Harry Connick Jr. I've really learned a lot from both of them. -Chandler Canterbury

In real life, I have mostly gone for nice guys. I definitely had a phase where I was like, "Oh, the bad guy is really cool." It's fun to be bad for a while, and then that ended really terribly – one piece of advice I'll give to people is your mom is always right. -Melissa Ordway

My advice to actors? To successful actors, it's, 'sock it away,' and unsuccessful actors, it's just, 'Just keep at it. Don't do it unless you have to do it, and if you have to do it, keep – you've got to keep your instrument in shape.' You just got to keep on getting better. If you're not getting better, you're standing still. -Stephen Lang

It is indeed difficult to make a living as a writer, and my advice to anyone contemplating a literary career is to have some other trade. -William S. Burroughs

I never give advice unless someone asks me for it. One thing I've learned, and possibly the only advice I have to give, is to not be that person giving out unsolicited advice based on your own personal experience. -Taylor Swift

I'm the girl who – I call it girl-next-door-itis – the hot guy is friends with and gets all his relationship advice from but never considers dating. -Taylor Swift

My style advice to other girls is to be experimental but always have a 'home base' and stick with your comfort style. -Taylor Swift

If I do a scene with an actor who doesn't have much experience, I say, 'I tell you what we're going to do: You just listen to me, and then you respond. We don't have to do any acting.' And that's good advice because you shouldn't see the acting. -Jon Voight

I have advice for people – period – who are in unhealthy relationships: Follow your heart. It will get you to where you need to be. Sometimes it's hard, sometimes it's easy, the places that your heart takes you. But continue to follow it. Where the train leads you – you'll get there. -Erykah Badu

My advice to authors would be to try to do something original rather than to try to anticipate what the market is looking for. -Jeff Kinney

Communication between band-mates is imperative. Communication is the key to any healthy relationship.

Same goes for anyone else in any band. -Phil Anselmo

I guess my music career is my personal life. You know, I've always been a writer who wants to write about my experiences. And so this experience being added to that, I – I want to live extraordinary experiences. And when I give advice to people, I want it to be sage advice. -Jason Mraz

Boys and girls, have confidence in the direction and counsel and advice of your parents and grandparents who love you more than anybody else in the world does. -James E. Faust

I learned that they were in a better position to know more about right and wrong than I did from my limited understanding and from my limited experience. -James E. Faust

To me, people's lives and loves are entwined with their characters, natures and circumstances. I regard all general advice with skepticism. -Rafael Yglesias

I've learned more and more on each show that I've done. I've been blessed and I've gotten to work with some very talented actors – James Gandolfini, Treat Williams. I've kind of always asked for advice and tried to take in as much as I could whenever working with them. -Steven R. McQueen

I think my advice to other actors would be to get in classes. Get out in front of people. Put up scenes in front of your peers. -Chelsea Kane

At my first job as an independent researcher at MIT Lincoln Laboratory, they told me I could work on most anything, but not what I knew something about. That is actually very good advice to a young person starting a career because you bring new ideas to the field. -Mildred Dresselhaus

I have very specific advice for aspiring writers: go to New York.

When I was 16 years old, my brother Frank said, 'You'd better become a catcher, because you're too big and fat to do anything else.' Well, I took his advice. It was a quick way to get to the big leagues, and I've never regretted it. -Joe Torre

Having girlfriends is… I can't do it. It doesn't mean I don't hang out with girls. It just means that I don't like being in a relationship, because it makes things very complicated.

Each year I host a leadership summit in my district, and my biggest advice to young people is get experience. Get your foot in the door. -Aaron Schock

In golf, advice is not a big thing. If you don't have the ability, you won't get anywhere no matter how much advice you get. The only thing people can suggest that matters is, be a good person and treat people respectfully. But advice on your game doesn't mean much to me. -Angel Cabrera

I was a contact hitter my whole career but I learned how to handle the ball inside. And Ted Williams played a big part in that. He gave me the advice on how to handle inside pitches. -Tony Gwynn

WordPress makes it drop-dead easy to start a site. Take my advice and go do it. -John Battelle

If a kid is being bullied at school, my advice to them is to punch the bully in the face.

The fact is, we still have bullies, and we still have victims who are trained not to stand up for themselves. -Joe Wurzelbacher

One thing I've been thinking about is taking the social issues out of national politics. For example, if Georgia wanted abortion and Alabama didn't, that's going to be up to the people in Georgia.

My main piece of advice would be don't worry about being published – just write a really good book, but also don't be afraid to write a bad book. Give yourself permission to fail, and don't be afraid. -David Levithan

I think that when a film does its job, it poses questions rather than gives answers. It should act as a frustrating counselor who, at your bidding for advice, says, 'What do you think?'

My advice would be to follow your dream. Most of my life, I was in second place before I came in first place. I hope that inspired people to never give up. -Jackie Evancho

I don't need to be liked, but I need to be vital – on set or on stage – and I think that probably would be my advice: Stay vital.

I always want the audience to identify with my character in some way. I mean, sometimes you'll get characters that aren't very identifiable. Sometimes you can't relate to your character at all. I think it's important to keep the audience interested. But the best advice that I've gotten is to live in the moment. -Liana Liberato

If I had any advice to give people, it would be to relax; never treat an audition like an emergency. There will be plenty more in your career. If you think you messed up, you probably didn't. And if you did mess up, it's not the end of the world. -Gregg Sulkin

It's all about learning your craft and honing it in and really paying attention to people who are doing it and what their advice is. It's like anything: it takes years and years and years. A lot of it comes down to work ethic. -Diego Klattenhoff

I remember once being told by a casting person, years ago, that I shouldn't pursue a career in the business because of the color of my skin. The fact that I remember it today means it stuck with me. I thought that was really stupid advice and advice nobody should ever give someone. -Manish Dayal

Stop being a critic and be a light; don't be a judge, be a model. I think we are far too critical.

Generally speaking, there is a time to correct, of course; but my biggest advice would be, 'Affirm your child.' -Sean Covey

Most authors writing books like 'He's Just Not That Into You' dream of doing what I was being asked to do. I didn't like it. I'm good at giving advice, but doing it on TV and radio felt wrong, and when people resisted my point of view, I was like, 'Why am I doing this? This was not the plan.' So I stopped. It didn't make me feel good. -Greg Behrendt

My advice on getting a raise is what everybody's advice is: to become a confident negotiator; but that is so hard. My admiration for women who are good at that is unbridled. Women in general have a harder time talking about money with their bosses. -Jill Abramson

My biggest advice for high school girls is to not take yourself so seriously. -Jillian Rose Reed

People share everything on Facebook. That can be a very good thing or a very noisy thing. With Foursquare, people know that they're getting information specifically about a place, advice about where they are and what they could be doing. It's a very filtered view of the world. -Dennis Crowley

The best entrepreneurs know when to ignore sage advice. -Sarah Lacy

When you're a young talent, and you want to launch your brand, you always have tons of questions: Where should I produce? Should I launch a second line? Should I do shoes, accessories? If you have someone who can coach you and give you advice and help you find the right supplier, it's a big help. -Delphine Arnault

My advice for upcoming actors is to never give up. If it's in you, keep following your dream no matter what. Perseverence is the key. -Chad Lindberg

I do want to learn the way to do it over here. I'm not really looking to just go about my way and do it in the Japanese way that I've been doing. Basically, I'll try to get some advice, learn the way it's done here and go about it. -Masahiro Tanaka

I can't say there were parts I was offered and turned down, but there were meetings for parts that I didn't go to, meetings I should have gone to, meetings I was advised against going to. I listened to that advice. -Cathy Moriarty

I learned one thing from De Niro: He taught me to listen. Nobody says anything strictly from the script. It's improvised. It was the best piece of advice I have ever gotten in my life. It has helped me through the past thirty years. -Cathy Moriarty

It's good to fight with your brothers, and it's good to tease them to give them advice. -Malala Yousafzai

I've got plenty of advice from a number of other actors. Me? I don't give advice. -Kevin Dillon

Go out there and try on everything – short skirts, long skirts, mid length, little jackets, men's clothing – and really look at yourself; really walk around in the clothes. Don't just take someone else's advice. You must feel you in these clothes and feel what it's like to live in them. -Charlotte Rampling

I've always had the greatest respect for and listened to both my father and my mother. I've always tried to follow my parents' advice because these are people who want the best for me. -Neymar

My mother is not a woman of ordinary culture. She knows literature and speaks Spanish better than I do. She even corrected my poems and gave me advice when I was studying rhetoric. -Jose Rizal

Sometimes the best coaching advice you can get is simple acknowledgement that there's nothing else you could have done. -Hannah Kearney

Don't be afraid to fail. You're going to go on a million auditions, and most of them you won't get. It's very easy to think, 'This is not going to work for me,' but keep at it. It's very generic advice, but you have to be willing to keep yourself in the game. -Ike Barinholtz

I've been through a lot of different situations, and the key thing I've learned is: Don't panic. That's the advice I give people. If anaphylaxis occurs, just do the necessary things. If it's your first time, call and seek emergency assistance and find out exactly what's happening. Get help. -Adrian Peterson

Always be prepared; always work hard and take pride in your work no matter what it is. I still follow that advice and have already tried to pass it on to my children. They, of course, ignored me. -Allen Covert

I don't give my advice unless it's asked for. -Blythe Danner

The best, very best scammers will always ask for your advice. This is their favorite technique. It makes them vulnerable. It flatters your ego. -James Altucher

I'm not accustomed to giving advice to those who haven't asked for it. -Rafael Correa

My only advice is, follow your dream and do whatever you like to do the most. I chose journalism because I wanted to be in the places where history was being made. -Jorge Ramos

I am always being stopped for style advice, and I love it! The way we dress says so much about ourselves, and I love when I can help others take control of that. -Nina Garcia

That's another piece of advice: Don't go to college; follow your dreams. Unless you're a doctor – then go to college. -Adam DeVine

The thing that I think a lot of guys need to know how to do is not take your mother's advice about honesty being the best policy. Listen to your cool, drunk uncle who tells you to lie. Those are the relationships that last. -Adam DeVine

What I've found in my life with our children is that often you can give them advice and tell them to eat the right things, stay in shape and wear sunscreen, and they don't really want to listen. But then they hear it from someone else, and they do listen. -Rick Pitino

Most of the time, if I'm in a pickle, I'll call one of my brothers. They've usually got somewhat uplifting advice. One is six and a half years older and one is eight years older, so they've probably lived through whatever my problem is. -Liam Hemsworth

Things rust, you know, like the heart. My cardiologist said, 'It's a pump; use it – that's the sole advice I've got to give you.' It's the same in playwriting. Don't theorise about it. Do it. -Peter Shaffer

I'm always amused when the 'New York Times' writes editorials trying to be helpful to Republicans and say, 'This is the way Republicans can save themselves.' Look, the 'New York Times' disagrees with us. They're entitled to disagree with us, but it's not like we should take their advice. -Ted Cruz

The best advice I got really had nothing to do with singing; it came from my brother, who always told me to stick to my guns and to believe in myself. I think Duane saw my talents and believed in me long before I ever did, and that meant the world to me. -Gregg Allman

My mom was the center of my support system, that place I always went to talk things through, whether I was feeling joy or fear. She was always there with a huge, open heart and the best advice. -Corbin Bernsen

I have always said to myself, 'I never want to say I'm leaving a job because I want to spend more time with my family.' I feel sorry for people when they say that. But my advice to them is that you shouldn't have taken the job in the first place. -Louis Freeh

Most social problems could be helped or prevented if people had more money and practical advice. -Sue Townsend

If I were to offer advice to any president of the United States, it would be this: do whatever you can do to keep America the most prosperous and free and powerful nation on earth. -Mitt Romney

I went back to my ex a couple of times, and regardless of how many times you hear from your parents or your best friends or whoever that 'Oh, you should let it go and be over it and let him go. Move past it and find somebody new.' Regardless of the advice that you're given, you kind of have to do whatever makes you happy. -Sevyn Streeter

I back people who I think will be seeking help and advice. These are the best entrepreneurs. -Audrey MacLean

I just followed my parents' example and advice on living, which was to leave the world a better place than you found it. They were professional do-gooders, ministers of the church, social workers, teachers, and missionaries, that sort of thing. -Ian Mckellen

People who are overweight don't want unsolicited advice. Guess what. We know we're fat. We live in homes with mirrors. -Al Roker

My mum was a wonderful mother. She died, aged 80, of Alzheimer's disease, which was dreadful to watch. I remember she said to me: 'Believe in yourself because no one else is going to do it for you.' I'm sure a lot of my success is due to her words of advice. -Bonnie Tyler

Asked to give advice to a 13-year-old girl about how to lead her life, I say find something you love to do. The goal shouldn't be accumulating money. It might be making changes in the world, or in your country. -Karen DeCrow

My job is simply to give advice, to be a counselor to our nation's leaders. -Michael Mullen

Whatever you do, don't take shortcuts. It's great advice to take and live by. -Dick Dale

My advice to composers is, 'Try to reach 90, and everyone will love you.' -Gian Carlo Menotti

Really good customer service will deliver sales. You are training salesmen to give the best possible advice and then to achieve the sale. People actually like you to ask for a sale because it shows you value their business. -John Caudwell

If I had to give one piece of advice to a budding entrepreneur, I would say: 'Aim big.' -Jose Ferreira

Sometimes it might seem like I'm using my songs to give other people pointers. But mainly, they're for me, just little notes to myself that I collected, and the wisdom that I've read. I give myself a lot of advice. -Seinabo Sey

My advice to young people is to get something that's growing because that's how you get career opportunities thrown at you that you don't deserve, if you will… that come at you early because the firms need you. -Hamilton E. James

In my son's kindergarten, they're telling us how to get him into Stanford. By their advice, I'm doing everything wrong, because I'm trying to make him happy rather than putting him through as many piano lessons as possible. -Sebastian Thrun

The best piece of advice I ever got from anyone was when Spike Jonze said, 'Take money out of the equation.' And that's actually when Vice started making lots of money. That's when I stopped worrying about money and started worrying about what I wanted to do. -Shane Smith

One posthumous measure of a person's life is how often you imagine his impossible return to deal with some event he never lived to encounter.

My advice is if you have to do music, then do it! There's no choice in your heart and your soul – unless you have that kind of great need, desire and determination, it's pretty tough out there! -Vonda Shepard

The advice I tell students is to think about the big problems. I mean, work on anything you can work on where you can make progress. But always keep in mind the big problems. -David Gross

You need someone in your life to give you advice without yelling at you. -Mimi Kennedy

I have three pieces of advice I want you to remember: Don't ever grow up. Don't become a bore. Don't let The Man get to you. -Sophia Amoruso

If you look at my Instagram, girls are just beating down my door for tips or a job or mentorship. I can't hire every single one of them. My story is one thing that gives them hope. It's an unconventional story with anecdotes, commonsense advice and a big dose of permission to figure things out for yourself. -Sophia Amoruso

Leading by example is the most powerful advice you can give to anybody. -N. R. Narayana Murthy

Some of my father's fellow West Pointers once asked him why I turned out so well, his secret in raising me. And he said, 'I never gave him any advice, and he never asked for any.' We agreed on nothing, but we never quarreled once. -Gore Vidal

I suppose the best advice I ever got, frankly the advice that changed my life, came from my uncle who told me to go to drama school and study acting instead of taking a job, because he said the job would always be there. -Elizabeth Banks

Some of the best advice I was ever given was: 'Don't believe your own hype.' -Britt Robertson

'Pain' is more indicative of what I like to do. I'm lyric-conscious. I like to tell stories, give advice. Instead of writing a 'Dear Abby' column, I do it on records. -Betty Wright

One night at a party, a really drunk guy came up to me and said, 'Whoa you look like Yves Saint Laurent' because I was wearing a turtleneck. I'd love to track that guy down and tell him that he gave pretty good casting advice. -Pierre Niney

My career was quite unusual, so my main advice to someone interested in a career similar to my own is to remain open to change and new opportunities. I like to tell students that the jobs I took after my Ph.D. were not in existence only a few years before. -Nancy Roman

I am excited to join the Workday Board at an exciting time in the company's growth and look forward to leveraging my past experience as a technologist and entrepreneur to provide advice as they continue to look at new areas of growth. -Jerry Yang

I've never had a voice coach, but I am about to name drop horrendously here: I did once get some advice on how to project my voice from Sean Connery, which was lovely. It's all about where you breathe. That's my claim to fame. -Nicola Sturgeon

Sometimes I get ideas from childhood. In 'The Hat', Hedgie starts getting teased about his hat, and he just pretends that everything is okay. That's the advice that my mother gave me – not to get mad and pretend that everything is okay. And it worked. -Jan Brett

I'm lyric conscious. I like to tell stories, give advice. Instead of writing a 'Dear Abby' column, I do it on records. -Betty Wright

I never weigh myself. That's the best advice I can give – never step on a scale. You know if you're being healthy, if you're exercising. You don't need to be undermined by some crazy number. -Elaine Irwin

My editor, Robin Robertson, is one of this country's finest poets, so I listen to him when he offers advice. -John Burnside

You need to be different and stand out. You need to have a message. For me, it didn't come easily. The best advice I was ever given, though, is go away and write 100 songs. You need to find the music that's you. -Jess Glynne

My advice to female directors is not to wait until you feel like your ideas have been pre-certified or until you think you've gotten some approval for them. Then it's too late! Follow your gut. That's hard to do, but the only way to be original. -Abigail Disney

Do I have any advice for someone new to No. 10? Never open the door in your nightie. And that everybody has to adjust to it in a way that's right for their family. -Cherie Blair

My advice to organizations I work with is always to be proactive rather than simply reactive when it comes to human rights issues. After all, the important process of improving company policies and practices must be carried out without having to be prompted by a labour strike, factory collapse or other crisis. -Cherie Blair

I would never presume to give anyone advice. -Anne Meara

One of the most talented, smartest people happens to be my wife, so I can get great advice from her. She obviously knows me incredibly well and what I'm going through. I don't know that I've been as helpful to her as she has been to me. -Dave Goldberg

The world takes us at our own valuation. It believes in the man who believes in himself, but it has little use for the timid man: the one who is never certain of himself, who cannot rely on his own judgment, who craves advice from others, and is afraid to go ahead on his own account. -Orison Swett Marden

The best advice is often the compliments received, and they are often about an associate who did something exceptional. I tell my teams that it's the random acts of kindness, the unexpected, that people remember most. -Barry Sternlicht

Rather than use the term 'profiling,' the profilers prefer to say they engage in criminal investigative analysis. That is because, besides developing profiles, the analysts offer a range of other advice, including personality assessments and interview techniques tailored to a particular offender. -Ronald Kessler

I give strong advice, but I don't expect it to be followed. -Baba Kalyani

My advice to the average investor in 1988 is to be patient and think long-term. It will take 18 months for confidence to get better and, in the meantime, this is absolutely no place for short-term money. -Louis Navellier

Show, don't tell, is a mantra repeated by tutors of creative writing courses the world over. As advice for amateurs, it is sound and helps avoid character profiling, unactivated scenes, and broken narrative frames. -Sarah Hall

In some ways, I've been left with this great 'idolic' image of my father, but there's a sense of absence, too. You miss his advice and, also, his getting to know the person I have become. -Rory Kinnear

The biggest challenge is to not be affected by praise because a lot of it is not from the heart. Being true to yourself about your strengths and weaknesses, when everyone out there has a strong opinion and wants to give advice, is another challenge. -Tena Desae

My father told me once not to expect anything from anybody so I wouldn't be disappointed. If somebody was nice and did nice things for me, I should be overjoyed, but I shouldn't go through life expecting it, which is very good advice. -Iris Apfel

On the advice of my U.K. publishers, I chose a sexless anonymity and published my first five books under the semi-pseudonym, S. J. Bolton. I was happy. I could hide behind a genderless, classless persona and let my creepy, psychological murder-mysteries speak for themselves. -Sharon Bolton

Good advice is just watch what you say on Facebook, on Twitter, on social networks because being sued is not fun. Filing a lawsuit is not fun. And being fired and having to do all of those things is not fun. So just avoid it. -Rachel Sklar

At my first library job, I worked with a woman named Sheila Brownstein, who was The Reader's Advisor. She was a short, bosomy Englishwoman who accosted people at the shelves and asked if they wanted advice on what to read, and if the answer was yes, she asked what writers they already loved and then suggested somebody new. -Elizabeth McCracken

Whether you're replacing one appliance that's seen better days, or many because you're moving or renovating, you probably know to look for the Energy Star label. That's good advice. -Jean Chatzky

I give out similar advice all the time: Take a month to write down where your money is going. By the end, you'll have a road map that tells you where you can cut back. -Jean Chatzky

I was told once by a leftwing scholar that as a Marxist, you have to do two things: always be optimistic and always have a view about everything. That advice still sounds good to me. -Yanis Varoufakis

I wrote a novel, Ghost Road Rules, and as soon as it was done and polished, I began reaching out to agents. I ignored the frequent advice to 'shoot low and try for a low-level agent because they're the only ones that will take a flyer on a new author.' That sounded like bad advice to me. -Jonathan Maberry

When I was in middle school, the librarian there was secretary for a couple of groups of professional writers. She introduced me to Ray Bradbury and Richard Matheson, and I became very friendly with them over a period of two years. Both of them were very generous with their time, guidance and advice. -Jonathan Maberry

Ignore all advice about writing. Leave your blood on every page. Every page! -Miriam Toews

There are plenty of things I wish I'd known when I decided to quit my position at IBM and work on the idea that later became TaskRabbit. Maybe that's why one of the things I cherish most about being a founder and CEO is the opportunity to offer advice to new entrepreneurs. -Leah Busque

My advice to young people who want to act is just to do it as much as you can! Find friends who also want to do it and have readings of great plays in your apartment. You don't have to wait for someone else to tell you that you can do it. You can be getting better on your own all the time. -Sarah Steele

If I wanted a circus ringmaster, I'd hire Trump. If I wanted advice on brain surgery or hospital management, I'd turn to Carson. Fiorina would make an articulate television pundit. But for president? -Nicholas Kristof

The best founders are extremely thoughtful and have an eye for quality. I don't know if there's any generic advice here that would be helpful. Startup knowledge is a moving target. -Naval Ravikant

Being a woman in a male-dominated industry sort of sucks, but it doesn't suck any more than being a woman in the world. My advice? Be terrifying. -Kelly Sue DeConnick

As for advice for aspiring authors, the best I can give is to be brave. It sounds like a simple enough thing, but it's not. Rejection is such an integral part of this journey, and it never goes away. -V. E. Schwab

I always tell my students to seek out other writers as models, and though it took me years to heed my own advice, it really was life-altering when I found writers who wrote long stories, full of back story and side plots and sub-histories. -Molly Antopol

Shortly after my Ph.D., Alfred Kastler urged me to accept a teaching position at the University of Paris. I followed his advice and started to teach at the undergraduate level. -Claude Cohen-Tannoudji

My advice after thirty years in the business is sign with an agency of reasonable size. -Dave Morris

I know one writer who has been subscribing authors without their permission and sending out what she thinks are helpful advice sheets, but they come off as if she's a know-it-all. She thinks she's marketing herself and her work. All she's really doing is turning readers off. -M. J. Rose

The advice I like to give to drummers is that there's no right or wrong way of playing the drums. I think the drumming community can be very antiquated and very stuck in the past of, like, this Neil Peart style, technical Guitar Center drum video kind of approach. That you need to have played for 15 years before you ever do anything worthwhile. -Janet Weiss

I was working for a chef a long time ago who told me to not skip steps or be in a hurry. Success in a kitchen is more like a marathon and less like a sprint. Rising up the ranks too quickly isn't necessarily a good thing. This advice was from a guy who was sorry he had done that and didn't want me to do the same. -Wylie Dufresne

My mother taught me caring and sensitivity towards the feelings of others, animals as well as humans. She gave me much good, practical advice for getting through life. -Robert C. Merton

How much we owe to good teachers, good education, and good advice! -Robert Mundell

While we share the same set of values, we can – and do – have different business interests. Dad has been there to give me career advice along the way, but he has always let me call the play. -Ross Perot, Jr.

One of the things that put me off writing for a while was that piece of advice everybody gives new writers: 'Write what you know.' Nobody would ever want to read about my boring life! But I do know a lot of things about different societies' cultures and mythologies. The way people were and are. -Carol Berg

When I get asked for advice for a young person starting in the music business, I tell them, 'Play every chance you get, and be real lucky.' -Johnny Gimble

I don't think I have ever taken any 'offbeat' advice. Actually, I don't know I take any advice very often. I trust my own instincts and seek out information so I can make fully informed decisions. That's what's worked for me. -Diane Hendricks

The advice I was given was just to make sure you look out of the window occasionally. It's something no astronaut ever gets tired of doing. -Helen Sharman

I try not to give too much advice, really, because people have to do their things their way. I got lots of advice when I was young, and I ignored most of it – the good and the bad. -Patti Smith

Lily's really together – she's a sharp kid and one of the smartest human beings I have ever met. Whatever she is doing, if she needs any advice, I'm there for her. Kids are going to make their own decisions, but I guess that the only thing you can do as a parent is to offer support. And I do. -Johnny Depp

My advice for raising daughters is to spend time with them doing things you both enjoy. -Mark Frauenfelder

It's ludicrous to think people work for you: 'a film by…' doesn't exist. Directed by, maybe, but it's a film from a collective, a group of people whom you consult and seek your counsel and advice and vice versa, too. -Xavier Dolan

A lot of people in my family have high blood pressure. Dre told me I better start hitting the gym… so I took his advice. -Warren G

I did a show with Tori Kelly, and it was really cool that I got to meet her. She has always been a huge inspiration of mine, and I'm obsessed with her voice, so it was great to get to talk to her about the industry. The best advice she gave me was to just be myself. -Daya

Write down everything you can think of, no matter how stupid it seems. I always write down my thoughts throughout the day. Sometimes good things come out of it, and I'll find an idea to develop into a song, so my best advice is to try and draw inspiration from everyday things. -Daya

When I speak of family, I immediately think of a support system who can give you a reality check when you need it: a mirror reflection of myself. I believe that we are a result of our family – the people who encourage us and tell us the truth about who we are which helps us to grow through their advice and wisdom. -Tasha Smith

The thing with physical preparation is I have tons of friends who train at a really high level and who can give me advice. But with mental training, I don't really know anybody who has a much better mind for climbing, I guess, so I don't really know where I would go. It's not really a limiting factor for me. -Alex Honnold

My advice to anyone would be to focus on your current job and be the best at it. The rest will take care of itself. -Maelle Gavet

Having sisters is the best. I have a different relationship with each of them. I go to Kim for fashion advice, Khloe is always boy and family advice, and Kourtney is like another mother to me. -Kylie Jenner

Andy Grammer is probably the closest friend I have in the music industry, so touring with him was just incredible. He's such a soulful, kind guy, and he gives great advice. And he also scares me a lot. He does a lot of pranks. -Rachel Platten

I work by instinct. You never hear anything new; when you hear advice that makes sense, it's something you already know. -Jerrod Carmichael

I never really set out to be a comedian, but as a kid, I loved doing sketches and playing characters. And then a great friend kept telling me I should be a comedian, so I followed her advice and gave it a shot. -Jerrod Carmichael

My best advice for anyone out there that feels like, 'I don't have a million followers so why should I even give it a shot,' is that it's not about the numbers – it's about the engagement. That's how you can build influence. -Michelle Phan

I don't believe in that term 'self-made' – not to be offensive, but I believe everything happens for a reason, every single person you meet. Even if it's one single person giving you advice, that person helped you get to where you're at today. -Michelle Phan

I'm by no means an expert at giving advice on depression, but I would say that a lot of my show is about making the decision to be happy. We all think that happiness is something that just falls into our lap. But it's something you have to really work on. -Lilly Singh

In rural North Carolina, you can get lots of great advice about how to clean and quarter a deer carcass, but we didn't really have anyone to ask for video advice, so we just kept learning through trial and error. -Rhett McLaughlin

My view is, the most important thing as prime minister is trying to make the right judgments. In order to make good judgments, you need good advice; you need good principles, and you need a clear head, and you need to have a sense of equilibrium. -David Cameron

A word of advice: your interview is about you. It's not about the school you went to, what you majored in, what your GPA was, or who your parents happen to be or know. Most of that stuff is right on your resume, and it might even have gotten you into the room, but it won't get you much farther. -Ivanka Trump

My biggest bits of advice are, write as much as you can, finish what you start, get a thick skin, don't take crap from anyone, but also live your life and have fun. The stereotype of a writer holed up alone all day is really unhelpful. You can't write real people and real emotion if you don't let yourself experience them. -Victoria Aveyard

You need to begin to network with angels and VCs while you are still ideating. It is easier to ask someone you know for funding than a stranger. Build your financial network by attending as many industry functions and reaching out for advice from experts online. -Jay Samit

I think that artists, at a certain point, can either become defiant and say that the audience is wrong, readers don't get them, and they're going to keep doing it their own way, or they can listen to the criticism – and not necessarily blindly follow the audience's requests and advice. -Adrian Tomine

The person is a resume, not what's on a piece of paper. Whoever gives advice about resumes in college should be dismissed. Titles don't matter. GPAs don't matter, nor does what school you go to. -Mickey Drexler

Losing my father at a tender age was hard, and I felt it more so while growing up when I needed a father to talk to. Especially while pursuing an acting career where I would have loved his guidance and advice, since it was his passion as well. -Ajay Mehta

When I came to the United States in 2004 to attend university at Stanford, I was instantly inspired by the stories and advice from startup leaders in Silicon Valley and beyond, who had endeavoured to create new opportunities and improve lives around the world. -Mike Krieger

When poor people get involved in a long conflict, such as a strike or a civil rights drive, and the pressure increases each day, there is a deep need for spiritual advice. Without it, we see families crumble, leadership weaken, and hard workers grow tired. -Cesar Chavez

Beware of advice about successful people and their methods. For starters, no two situations are alike. Your dreams of creating a dry-cleaning empire won't be helped by knowing that Thomas Edison liked to take naps. -Scott Adams

That's something I never want to do: I never want to think I know it all, because I don't. There's always more people with more advice, and I just want to soak all that up and make my sporting toolbox as full as I can get it. -Kirsten Sweetland

I married my best friend. I was still in awe after more than four years of being around her at how smart and strong and loving and caring she was. And I really hoped that her choosing me and rejecting my advice to pursue her own career was a decision she would never regret. -William J. Clinton

Knowing whose advice to take and on what topic is the single most important decision an entrepreneur can make. -Vinod Khosla

I do have advice for any kid actors. Just go in there and own it like you own the job already. You just have to say, 'I'm going to get this. I'm going to get this.' -Ty Simpkins

I really feel like because I had my son so young, I didn't want everyone's help. I think people felt entitled to give advice, so I'm always very sensitive to moms and letting them feel their way out. -Solange Knowles

The weirdest place someone has asked me for advice was at a party where there were a lot of A-list celebrities and super-wealthy people. There were people in the middle of mingling asking for investment advice, and I'm like, 'Hey, I'm just here to dance. I'm here to have fun!' -Marcus Lemonis

If I could give one piece of advice, it would be 'If you're angry with a family member, talk to God about it, not the other members of your family.' -Deborah Raney

I think the simplest advice I could give would be to wait until asked before giving advice. -Deborah Raney

The best advice I got as a writer was also the first advice, which came from the late fantasy author and editor Karl Edward Wagner: Any agent who charges to look at your work is a crook. -Nancy A. Collins

If I ask for money, all I get is advice. But if I ask for advice, I end up getting money. -John Quelch

The arguments in the Brexit vote and in the American presidential campaign are about the same. In a friendly way, may I also give some advice to the American people to make the right choice when the moment comes. -Francois Hollande
