Explore the value of Trust
George Eliot [Mary Ann Evans]
The friend in my adversity I shall always cherish most. I can better trust those who helped to relieve the gloom of my dark hours than those who are so ready to enjoy with me the sunshine of my prosperity.
Ulysses S. Grant
Trust each other again and again. When the trust level gets high enough, people transcend apparent limits, discovering new and awesome abilities for which they were previously unaware.
It is impossible to go through life without trust: that is to be imprisoned in the worst cell of all, oneself.
Above all be of single aim; have a legitimate and useful purpose, and devote yourself unreservedly to it.
Without trust, words become the hollow sound of a wooden gong. With trust, words become life itself.
Dr. Samuel Johnson
I doubt that we can ever successfully impose values or attitudes or behaviors on our children certainly not by threat, guilt, or punishment. But I do believe they can be induced through relationships where parents and children are growing together. Such relationships are, I believe, build on trust, example, talk, and caring.

Trust is earned over time and not purchased. Once it is earned it can be difficult to lose.
Charlie Kropp, Illinois
Trust everyone, and you will be happy. If people abuse your trust, no matter what- the fault is on them. The lesson to learn from it is not that you have trusted the wrong person, but that you have trusted them to do the wrong things.
Josh, SLC, UT
Trust is hard to regain in a relationship that has failed. But trust is the number one most important quality of a relationship, and if it cannot be repaired, the relationship will fall apart again.
Just like a trust fall. You have to know how to trust the person that will catch you when you fall backwards. You are relying on them for their support.
Eli A., Canada
Believe in someone and know that they can do it.
