Regardless of the relationship (a friendship, a family member, a business partnership, or a personal partnership), trust is the glue that keeps it together. Without trust, you have nothing. With trust, you can do great things — the sky’s the limit. Here are a few of my favorite quotations on trust.
“To be trusted is a greater compliment than being loved.” (George MacDonald )
“The glue that holds all relationships together–including the relationship between the leader and the led–is trust, and trust is based on integrity.” (Brian Tracy)
“Trust is built when someone is vulnerable and not taken advantage of.” (Bob Vanourek)
“The best way to find out if you can trust somebody is to trust them.” (Ernest Hemingway)
“Leadership requires five ingredients–brains, energy, determination, trust, and ethics. The key challenges today are in terms of the last two–trust and ethics.” (Fred Hilmer)
