The greatest trust between man and man is the trust of giving counsel.
- Francis Bacon, Essays--Of Counsel
The mistakes committed by women are almost always the result of her faith in the good and her confidence in the truth.
- Honore de Balzac
It is a view of God that compensates every thing else, and enables the soul to rest in His bosom. How, when the child in the night screams with terror, hearing sounds that it knows not of, is that child comforted and put to rest? Is it by a philosophical explanation that the sounds were made by the rats in the partition? Is it by imparting entomological knowledge? No; it is by the mother taking the child in her lap, and singing sweetly to it, and rocking it. And the child thinks nothing of the explanation, but only of the mother.
- Henry Ward Beecher
Lo, thou trusteth in the staff of this broken reed, on Egypt; whereon if a man lean, it will go into his hand, and pierce it: so is Pharoah king of Egypt to all that trust in him.
- Bible, Isaiah (ch. XXXVI, v. 6)
Trust in the Lord with all thine heart; and lean not unto thine own understanding.
- Bible, Proverbs (ch. III, v. 5)
He that handleth a matter wisely shall find good: and whoso trusteth in the Lord, happy is he.
- Bible, Proverbs (ch. XVI, v. 20)
Trust with a child-like dependence upon God, and you shall fear no evil, for be assured that even "if the enemy comes in like a flood" the Spirit of the Lord will lift up a standard against him. While at that dread hour, when the world cannot help you, when all the powers of nature are in vain, yea, when your heart and your flesh shall fail you, you will be enabled still to rely with peace upon Him who has said "I will be the strength of thy heart and thy portion for ever."
- Henry Blunt
The woman who yields to promises sets her bark afloat upon a raging sea. In fulfillment alone lies safety.
- Alfred Bougeart
Trust exists; only lies are invented.
- Georges Braque
Trust not any man with thy life, credit, or estate. For it is mere folly for a man to enthrall himself to his friend, as though, occasion being offered, he should not dare to become an enemy.
- William Henry Burleigh
Trust in God for great things. With your five loaves and two fishes He will show you a way to feed thousands.
- Horace Bushnell
We come, in our trust, unto God, and the moment we so embrace Him, by committing our total being and eternity to Him, we find every thing is transformed. There is life in us from God; a kind of Christ-consciousness is opened in us, testifying with the apostle,--Christ liveth in me.
- Horace Bushnell
Build a little fence of trust
Fill the space with loving work,
And therein stay;
Look not through the sheltering bars
God will help thee bear what comes
Of joy or sorrow.
- Mrs. Mary Frances Butts, Trust
We rarely confide in those who are better than we are.
- Albert Camus
The world is an old woman, and mistakes any gilt farthing for a gold coin; whereby being often cheated, she will thenceforth trust nothing but the common copper.
- Thomas Carlyle
Father, perfect my trust;
Let my spirit feel in death
That her feet are firmly set
On the rock of a living faith!
- Phoebe Cary, Nearer Home
A friend called on me when I was ill, to settle some business. My head was too much confused by my indisposition to understand fully what he said, but I had such unlimited confidence in him that I did whatever he bid me, in the fullest assurance that it was right. How simply I can trust in man, and how little in God! How unreasonable is a pure act of faith in one like ourselves, if we cannot repose the same faith in God.
- Richard Cecil
You may trust him in the dark.
- Cicero (Marcus Tullius Cicero) (often called "Tully" for short)
When we trust our brother, whom we have seen, we are learning to trust God, whom we have not seen.
- James Freeman Clarke
Who would not rather trust and be deceived?
- Eliza Cook, Love On
You may be deceived if you trust too much, but you will live in torment if you do not trust enough.
- Dr. Frank Crane
Trust in God, and keep your powder dry.
- Oliver Cromwell,
see Blacker "Col. Oliver's Advice" in "Ballads of Ireland", I, 191
I repeat, * * * that all power is a trust--that we are accountable for its exercise.
- Benjamin Disraeli, 1st Earl of Beaconsfield
When I was quite young, I put my trust in God--not government; and I never get the two confused.
- Robert "Bob" Dole
I can forgive a foe, but not a mistress and a friend; treason is there in its most horrid shape, where trust is greatest!
- John Dryden
