Trust everybody, but cut the cards. ~ Finley Peter Dunne

Trust that little voice in your head that says “Wouldn’t it be interesting if…” – and then do it. ~ Duane Michaels

To get a child’s trust – you may know or not – is a very hard thing to do. They’re so used to not believing adults – because adults tell tales and lies all the time. ~ Maurice Sendak

That was when it was all made painfully clear to me. When you are a child, there is joy. There is laughter. And most of all, there is trust. Trust in your fellows. When you are an adult…then comes suspicion, hatred, and fear. If children ran the world, it would be a place of eternal bliss and cheer. Adults run the world; and there is war, and enmity, and destruction unending. Adults who take charge of things muck them up, and then produce a new generation of children and say, “The children are the hope of the future.” And they are right. Children are the hope of the future. But adults are the damnation of the present, and children become adults as surely as adults become worm food. Adults are the death of hope. ~ Peter David, Tigerheart

Trust him not with your secrets, who, when left alone in your room, turns over your papers. ~ Johann Kaspar Lavater

To be trusted is a greater compliment than being loved. ~ George MacDonald

Never trust someone that claims they care nothing of what society thinks of them. Instead of conquering obstacles, they simply pretend they don’t exist. ~ Tiffany Madison

We rarely confide in those who are better than we. Rather, we are more inclined to flee their society. Most often, on the other hand, we confess to those who are like us and who share our weaknesses. Hence we don’t want to improve ourselves and be bettered, for we should first have to be judged in default. We merely wish to be pitied and encouraged in the course we have chosen. In short, we should like, at the same time, to cease being guilty and yet not to make the effort of cleansing ourselves. ~ Albert Camus

Ah! Yes, I know: those who see me rarely trust my word: I must look too intelligent to keep it. ~ Jean-Paul Sartre
