Trustworthiness Quotes

"The only way to make a man trustworthy is to trust him."
Henry L. Stimson

“A true friend never breaches the trust of his companion or stabs in his back. He is trustworthy and reliable. One should therefore always try to be a true and reliable friend.”
From the Sam Veda

“Make your judgment trustworthy by trusting it”
Grenville Kleiser

“The passions possess a certain injustice and self interest which makes it dangerous to follow them, and in reality we should distrust them even when they appear most trustworthy.”
François de la Rochefoucauld

"Your faithfulness makes you trustworthy to God."
Edwin Louis Cole

Miles Franklin

"The chief lesson I have learned in a long life is that the only way you can make a man trustworthy is to trust him; and the surest way to make him untrustworthy is to distrust him."
