TRUST Quotes

* "There is no trust more sacred than the one the world holds with children. There is no duty more important than ensuring that their rights are respected, that their welfare is protected, that their lives are free from fear and want and that they can grow up in peace."
-- Kofi Annan

“I believe that our world needs an instrument of global action as never before in history. I believe that the United Nations is the instrument for securing peace and for giving people everywhere, in poorer countries as in richer, a real stake in that peace by promoting development and encouraging cooperation. But the United Nations is only an instrument, an actor in need of props and cues from its directors, And so I will paraphrase Winston Churchill: Give us the tools—the trust, the authority and the means—and we will do the job." -- Kofi Annan

* Now the first step has to be taken, the step towards democracy. This step is full of risks, and requires trust on all sides. We don't know where it will lead. But if we just stand still, we will have no chance of escaping the violence.
-- Daniel Barenboim

"Creativity comes from trust. Trust your instincts. And never hope more than you work."
-- Rita Mae Brown

The World we all share is given to us in trust.
Every choice we make regarding the earth, air, and water around us
should be made with the objective of preserving it for all generations to come.
-- August A. Bush III

Surplus wealth is a sacred trust which its possessor is bound to administer in his lifetime for the good of the community.
~ Andrew Carnegie

Voice leads to empowerment. Empowerment leads to full humanity.
Many faith groups have a trust relationship within their own community. ...
Justice is part of our core mission. So media justice is part of what it means to advocate for a just society.
-- Rev. Robert Chase

The leaders who work most effectively, it seems to me, never say "I." And that's not because they have trained themselves not to say "I." They don't think "I." They think "we"; they think "team." They understand their job to be to make the team function. They accept responsibility and don't sidestep it, but "we" gets the credit…. This is what creates trust, what enables you to get the task done.
-- Peter F. Drucker

By banishing doubt and trusting your intuitive feelings,
you clear a space for the power of intention to flow through.
- Wayne Dyer

Every kind of peaceful cooperation among men is primarily based on mutual trust and only secondarily on institutions such as courts of justice and police”
-- Albert Einstein

* This world of ours... must avoid becoming a community of dreadful fear and hate, and be, instead, a proud confederation of mutual trust and respect.
-- Dwight D. Eisenhower

The glory of friendship is not the outstretched hand,
nor the kindly smile, nor the joy of companionship;
it is the spiritual inspiration that comes to one
when he discovers that someone else believes in him
and is willing to trust him with his friendship.
-- Ralph Waldo Emerson

And truly it demands something godlike in him who cast off the common motives of humanity and ventured to trust himself for a taskmaster.
~ Ralph Waldo Emerson

* The trust of the people in the leaders reflects the confidence of the leaders in the people.
--
Paulo Freire

"As soon as you trust yourself, you will know how to live."
-- Goethe

"Without mutual knowledge there can be no mutual understanding; without understanding, there can be no trust and respect; without trust, there can be no peace, only the danger of conflict. This means we have to be willing and able to familiarize ourselves with the way people of other cultures think and perceive the world around them, but without losing our own standpoint in the process."
-- Roman Herzog, President of Germany

It is essential to employ, trust, and reward those whose
perspective, ability, and judgment are radically different from yours.
It is also rare, for it requires uncommon humility, tolerance, and wisdom.
-- Dee Hock

"America is a country ready to be taken—in fact, longing to be taken—by political leaders ready to restore democracy and trust to the political process."
-- Arianna Huffington

Whenever the people are well informed, they can be trusted with their own government; that whenever things get so far wrong as to attract their notice, they may be relied on to set them to rights.
-- Thomas Jefferson

When I get logical and I don't trust my instincts
- Thats when I get in trouble.
~ Angelina Jolie

* We are not afraid to entrust the American people with unpleasant facts, foreign ideas, alien philosophies, and competitive values. For a nation that is afraid to let its people judge the truth and falsehood in an open market is a nation that is afraid of its people. -- John F. Kennedy

Today, every inhabitant of this planet must contemplate the day when this planet may no longer be habitable. Every man, woman and child lives under a nuclear sword of Damocles hanging by the slenderest of threads, capable of being cut at any moment by accident or miscalculation or by madness. The weapons of war must be abolished before they abolish us… The mere existence of modern weapons … is a sources of horror and discord and distrust. ~ John F. Kennedy

Modern cynics and skeptics... see no harm in paying those to whom they entrust the minds of their children a smaller wage than is paid to those to whom they entrust the care of their plumbing. -- John F. Kennedy

Remember that consciousness is power. Consciousness is education and knowledge. Consciousness is becoming aware. It is the perfect vehicle for students. Consciousness-raising is pertinent for power, and be sure that power will not be abusively used, but used for building trust and goodwill domestically and internationally. Tomorrow's world is yours to build.
-- Yuri Kochiyama

* If any man tells you he loves America, yet hates labor, he is a liar. If any man tells you he trusts America, yet fears labor, he is a fool.
-- Abraham Lincoln

My trust in a higher power that wants me to survive and have love in my life, is what keeps me moving forward.
-- Kenny Loggins

* I think the most important issue we have as a people is what we started, and that is to begin to trust our own thinking again and belive in ourselves enough to think that we can articulate our own vision of the future and then work to make sure that that vision becomes a reality.
-- Wilma Mankiller

"If you have a great ambition, take as big a step as possible in the direction of fulfilling it.
The step may only be a tiny one, but trust that it may be the largest one possible for now."
-- Mildred McAfee

* "The young, free to act on their initiative, can lead their elders in the direction of the unknown... The children, the young, must ask the questions that we would never think to ask, but enough trust must be re-established so that the elders will be permitted to work with them on the answers."
-- Margaret Mead

“I believe democracy requires a ‘sacred contract’ between journalists and those who put their trust in us to tell them what we can about how the world really works.”

-- Harriet Beecher Stowe

“To be a philosopher is not merely to have subtle thoughts, nor even to found a school, but to so love wisdom as to live according to its dictates a life of simplicity, independence, magnanimity and trust.”
-- Henry David Thoreau

* The human heart is the first home of democracy. It is where we embrace our questions: Can we be equitable? Can we be generous? Can we listen with our whole beings, not just our minds, and offer our attention rather than our opinion? And do we have enough resolve in our hearts to act courageously, relentlessly, without giving up, trusting our fellow citizens to join us in our determined pursuit—a living democracy?
~ Terry Tempest Williams
