The advice of the elders to young men is very apt to be as unreal as a list of the hundred best books.

A Quote by Neal A. Maxwell on absence, advice, attitude, church, circumstances, correction, facts, family, fear, force, friendship, giving, heart, leadership, listening, losing, love, past, pride, resentment, solution, and truth

In moments of truth, when meekness matters, other forces, including pride, flow into the chemistry of that moment. Take, for instance, the matter of receiving correct counsel, whether given by a spouse, a family member, a friend, or a Church leader. Often the counsel, even when spoken in love, is resisted by the recipient who - chained by pride - focuses instead upon the imperfections of the person giving the counsel. In another situation, the recipient may have much pride in the position he or she has already taken and refuse to deny himself or herself the continuation of that conduct, lifestyle, or attitude, which denial is at the heart of the solution. However, those who fear losing face cannot have His image in their countenances. In yet another circumstance, the recipient may, instead of listening to the counsel given, be nursing some past grievance upon which he or she would prefer to focus rather than the real issue at hand. Neither advice-giver nor circumstances can be perfect. Absent mutual meekness, the counsel given may not only go unheeded, but, in fact, may even be resented. Italics added.

Neal Maxwell (1926 -)
