Not everyone who has advice to give means well by it; sometimes speakers' words serve themselves, not their audience. A cautionary German expression shows the risk of self-interested counsel: "When the fox preaches, look to your geese." (Wenn der fuchs predigt, so nehmt die gänse in acht) If you've ever worked in an office where the management talked about cost-cutting measures, you understand the implications. It's also a useful thought to hold in any election season.
