The people when rightly and fully trusted will return the trust.
      - Abraham Lincoln

O holy trust! O endless sense of rest!
  Like the beloved John
    To lay his head upon the Saviour's breast,
      And thus to journey on!
      - Henry Wadsworth Longfellow, Hymn (st. 5)

That, in tracing the shade, I shall find out the sun.
  Trust to me!

        Lucile (pt. II, canto VI, st. 15)

To be trusted is a greater compliment than to be loved.

If, like Jacob, you trust God in little things, He may answer you by great things.
      - John MacDuff

We are only asking yon to give to Christ that which you give to others, to transfer the old emotions, the blessed emotions, the exercise of which makes gladness in the life here below, to transfer them to Him, and to rest safe in the Lord. Faith is trust.
      - Alexander Maclaren

You must cast yourself on God's gospel with all your weight, without any hanging back, without any doubt, without even the shadow of a suspicion that it will give.
      - Alexander Maclaren

As contagion of sickness makes sickness, contagion of trust can make trust.
      - Marianne Craig Moore

"Eyes to the blind"
  Thou art, O God! Earth I no longer see,
    Yet trustfully my spirit looks to thee.
      - Alice Neal (pseudonym of Emily Bradley Neal Haven) (Emily Bradley)

Let not the titles of consanguinity betray you into a prejudicial trust; no blood being apter to raise a fever, or cause a consumption sooner in your poor estate, than that which is nearest your own.
      - Francis Osborne (Osborn)

The ordinary saying is, Count money after your father; so the same prudence adviseth to measure the ends of all counsels, though uttered by never so intimate a friend.

Who has passed by the fates of disillusion has died twice.
      - Ouida (pseudonym of Marie Louise de la Ramee)

If thou couldst trust, poor soul!
  In Him who rules the whole,
    Thou wouldst find peace and rest;
      Wisdom and sight are well, but trust is best.
      - Adelaide Anne Procter

You may trust him in the dark.
      - Proverb, (Roman) cited by Cicero

If thou be subject to any great vanity or ill (from which I hope God will bless thee), then therein trust no man; for every man's folly ought to be his greatest secret.
      - Sir Walter Raleigh (1)

Take special care that thou never trust any friend or servant with any matter that may endanger thine estate; for so shalt thou make thyself a bond-slave to him that thou trustest, and leave thyself always to his mercy.
      - Sir Walter Raleigh (1)

Trust few men; above all, keep your follies to yourself.
      - Sir Walter Raleigh (1)

I think I could sum up my position on this with the recitation of a brief Russian proverb "Doveryai no Proveryai." It means trust but verify.

        in the "New York Times", Dec. 4, 1987, p. A10

Make not Christ a liar in distrusting His promise.
      - Samuel Rutherford

I well believe
  Thou wilt not utter what thou dost not know;
    And so far will I trust thee.
      - William Shakespeare

To build upon a foolish woman's promise!
      - William Shakespeare

I know you wise, but yet no farther wise
  Than Harry Percy's wife; constant you are,
    But yet a woman; and for secrecy,
      No lady closer, for I well believe
        Thou wilt not utter what thou dost not know,
          And so far will I trust thee, gentle Kate.
      - William Shakespeare,
        King Henry the Fourth, Part I
         (Hotspur at II, iii)

Friendship is constant in all other things
  Save in the office and affairs of love.
    Therefore all hearts in love use their own tongues;
      Let every eye negotiate for itself
        And trust no agent; for beauty is a witch
          Against whose charms faith melteth into blood.
      - William Shakespeare,
        Much Ado About Nothing
         (Claudio at II, i)

My life upon her faith!
      - William Shakespeare,
        Othello the Moor of Venice
         (Othello at I, iii)

Who should be trusted, when one's right hand
  Is perjured to the bosom? Proteus,
    I am sorry I must never trust thee more,
      But count the world a stranger for thy sake.
        The private wound is deepest. O time most accurst,
          'Mongst all foes that a friend should be the worst!
      - William Shakespeare,
        The Two Gentlemen of Verona
         (Valentine at V, iv)
