“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
The liar’s punishment is not in the least that he is not believed, but that he cannot believe anyone else.
“Be courteous to all, but intimate with few, and let those few be well tried before you give them your confidence.”
“Someone who thinks the world is always cheating him is right. He is missing that wonderful feeling of trust in someone or something.”
