To be trusted is a greater compliment than being loved.

Never be afraid to trust an unknown future to a known God.

Context from:THE WORKS OF Ralph Waldo Emerson ESSAYS FIRST SERIES

Fireside Edition

Essay VII

PRUDENCE.

Theme no poet gladly sung,
Fair to old and foul to young;
Scorn not thou the love of parts
And the articles of arts.
Grandeur of the perfect sphere
Thanks the atoms that cohere.



We must not try to write the laws of any one virtue, looking at that only. Human nature loves no contradictions, but is symmetrical. The prudence which secures an outward well-being is not to be studied by one set of men, whilst heroism and holiness are studied by another, but they are reconcilable. Prudence concerns the present time, persons, property and existing forms. But as every fact hath its roots in the soul, and if the soul were changed would cease to be, or would become some other thing, — the proper administration of outward things will always rest on a just apprehension of their cause and origin; that is, the good man will be the wise man, and the single-hearted the politic man. Every violation of truth is not only a sort of suicide in the liar, but is a stab at the health of human society. On the most profitable lie the course of events presently lays a destructive tax; whilst frankness invites frankness, puts the parties ‘n a convenient footing and makes their business a friendship. Trust men and they will be true to you; treat them greatly and they will show them selves great, though they make an exception in your favor to all their rules of trade.

Yeah. It would have been great if it were true… Tit for tat, right?
