Famous quotes containing the word trust:

    In order for an individual to partake of the world and contribute to it in a healthy way, he first needs to view that world as a basically kind, friendly, and supportive place. Such an outlook begins to be formed during infancy. It’s essential that the baby establish a fundamental trust in his environment. The infant needs to learn that the world is a nurturing place where his needs will be met.
    Saf Lerman (20th century)

    I trust the sanity of my vessel; and
    if it sinks, it may well be in answer
    to the reasoning of the eternal voices,
    the waves which have kept me from reaching you.
    Frank O’Hara (1926–1966)

    One must be fond of people and trust them if one is not to make a mess of life.
    —E.M. (Edward Morgan)
