Positive Quote: “Advice is like snow; the softer it falls, the longer it dwells upon, and the deeper it sinks into, the mind.” – Samuel Taylor Coleridge
I think I gravitated to this quote because my mind was focused on our recent snowfall in the area. When it gets piled high, your feet really sink into it before you know it your feet are so many inches down in the snow.
What I like the most about this quote is that it reminds me that advice (if and when given) should be delivered softly, compassionately, and free from a negative delivery. Otherwise, it will more often than not be disregarded. Yet, advice nicely given with authenticity will be heard. It may not be acted upon immediately, yet may simmer as it sinks into the person’s mind.
What do you think of this quote?
Have a terrific Thursday.
