             Quote of the Moment (next quote)



     Man is never less sincere than when he asks or offers advice. When he asks it he seems to defer to the wisdom of his friend but really he seeks approval of his own opinion and to make his friend responsible with him for his actions. When he offers advice he seems to repay the confidence of his inquirer with disinterested zeal while really seeking to bolster his own advantage or reputation.
