Do not advise unless sought

  • वाच्यं श्रद्धासमेतस्य पृच्छतश्च विशेषतः।
    प्रोक्तं श्रद्धाविहीनस्यारण्ये रुदितोपमम्॥
  • vācyaṁ śraddhāsametasya pṛcchataśca viśeṣataḥ|
    proktaṁ śraddhāvihīnasyāraṇye ruditopamam||
  • Wise counsel must be given only when sought, and when sought sincerely. Words of wisdom become a cry in the wilderness when wasted on the disinterested.
  • – Pañcatantra
