22 Listen

listen2Good advice is good advice no matter the source. Do not get so carried away with the source of the information that you stop listening, to do so is to render yourself deaf, dumb, blind and stupid because you miss the lesson, the opportunity to learn and grow.

Confucianism: “He, who learns but does not think, is lost! He who thinks but does not learn is in great danger” –Confucius.


  1. Good advice sure doesn’t lose its value due to the source. Thanks for sharing the bluff snaps…the water looks very inviting :)

  2. Great advice now all I have to do is try to remember it (smile).

  3. Good afternoon Fab…I enjoyed the stroll along Scarborough Bluffs.We are having a beautiful Sunday here in our Ozark Hills and enjoyed the huge fireworks display across the Lake Taneycomo valley from my home. If you lived closed by you could have enjoyed the feast I cooked up too…I think I am still full from the feast.Have a wonderful week…GregI always tell myself and others who ask… “We must always remain teachable.”Yep…Receive good advice.

  4. LIsten to good advice – that is good advice….Thanks for dropping by and your thoughts – I didn’t even think of the morality of the faily of Jordy Chandler accepting MJ’s money but everyone has their own standards – like you I would fight for justice, not a millionaire lifestyle. But some might argue that the money was more justice than they would have ever got in a court. We live in a strange and bad world.Take care

  5. He who thinks he knows does not. He who thinks he does not know should think again. Confusion says, what?j

  6. This Confucius guy was a pretty spacy cat, I wonder what it would be like to meet him…There is a wealth of knowledge out there that crosses all boundaries, so yes I agree with you my thoughtfull friend.Hugs from Alaska!

  7. How very true, knowledge and life lessons are all around us, should we care to notice and learn we only enhance our understanding of self and others… A lovely reminder.Namaste Barb

  8. A nice post! if we are wise that only learnt a good things than make ourlives easier? but it’s not always???Have a wonderful 4th of July weekend,Michiko

  9. Sooooo true! I say this all the time!!

  10. Hi Rhapsody,
    Good advice thanks,

  11. Hello,

    Wonderful words of advice. Normally, we look to great people for advice and we consider any advice from lesser human beings is useless and not noteworthy. You have really opened our eyes.

    Best wishes,

  12. Good advice is truly good advice. It's up to the person to take it into action. They can either do away with it or try to incorporate it into their lives. We all have choices to make in life, whether good or bad.


  13. Wonderful words of wisdom and food for thought.
    Thank you for your kind comments to my space.
    Peace :D

  14. Great advice, thanks for sharing. I'll be tweeting the quote.

  15. This is so true. Thanks for sharing.

  16. True that! May God give us a discerning spirit sha

  17. Perhaps our hesitation comes from not seeing the person who is giving the advice using it themselves...
    I have a totally different perspective after reading this, seeing as the person who didn't use the advice might actually be in a better position to give it because he knows from experience the consequences of ignoring such advice.
    Food for thought

    (¸.•´ (¸.•` ¤ So very true. I like this. I have to say as well that I am glad that I paid so little attention to some good solid advice that I didn't take from people... because had I, I might have been saved from some of my most valuable mistakes... and I have learned so much from my mistakes.

  19. Thank you so much ma'am for sharing this..i confess, am guilty of it atimes...i would repent.
