There’s nothing you can tell me. I know it all. Who are you to talk to me? Do you know who you’re talking to? We don’t always say it but actions and sentiments reflect this independent attitude. Great people over time, for all of their strength of character, have been successful because of their ability to look for and take good advice. It’s a great thing to recognise that even from the most unlikely sources if we but have the eyes to see and ears to hear there’s lots of wisdom to help us now and for the future.
Listen to advice and accept instruction, that you may gain wisdom in the future. (Proverbs 19:20)
