Oscar Wilde said, "I always pass on good advice. It is the only thing to do with it. It is never of any use to oneself." Write a paragraph discussing whether you agree with this statement and explain why or why not. You should have at least a five-sentence response with a clear topic and conclusion sentence.

**I'm not looking for a whole paragraph, I'm just having trouble understanding the quote, If someone gave me a clear way of showing me what it means, I can write the paragraph on my own. I just need a better understanding**

  1. When someone gives him good advice, he tells it to other people. He knows he won’t use that advice himself.

    Maybe he doesn’t think he needs it. Maybe he just wanted to vent and wasn’t asking for advice in the first place.
