John Gray wrote “Men are from Mars women are from Venus”. He has helped through this best seller novel many husband and wife teams understand and acknowledge each other. John Gray is an author (as mentioned earlier) as well as a relationship expert and John has given us a quote which can be applied to any relationship.

“To offer a man unsolicited advice is to presume that he doesn’t know what to do or that he can’t do it on his own” John Gray  

I love this quote!  One of the only changes I would make to the quote, would be that man can be applied to man or woman. Now matter how well-intentioned we are, when giving an adult unsolicited advice we are being rude. Rude: discourteous or impolite, especially in a deliberate way.


When you offer an adult unsolicited advice you are interrupting that adults life, Impolite check and you are doing this deliberately so deliberate way check.

“Manners don’t cost a thing” unknown

The quote origins are unknown but the quote is true.  Being respectful and polite is free and goes much further in our adult relationships than any unsolicited advice you plan on rudely giving to another adult today. 

I will end with a quote about unsolicited advice from one of histories most influential men

““Why do you look at the speck of sawdust in your brother’s eye and pay no attention to the plank in your own eye?  How can you say to your brother, ‘Let me take the speck out of your eye,’ when all the time there is a plank in your own eye?” Jesus Christ
