In the Name of Allāh, the Ever Merciful, the Bestower of Mercy

 From the poetry of Abū Aswad:1

وما كُلُّ ذي لُبٍّ بمؤْتيكَ نُصْحَهُ ـــ وما كُلُّ مؤْتٍ نُصحَهُ بِلَبيب
Not every sensible man will give you advice and not every advisor is a sensible man.
1) Abū Aswad al-Duʾalī [d. AH 69], Dīwān Abī Aswad al-Duʾalī.
