: I am looking for an aphorism in English thats meaning is - you should listen to advice from your friends. In ancient Aramaic there is such a saying that is translated: If your friends call you an ass, better go put on a saddle.

Not nearly as colorful, but "A word to the wise is sufficient." Doesn't specify friends, however. SS
