Here are some great quotes about trust: Trust takes years to build, seconds to break and forever to repair. Trust is like paper, once it's crumpled it can't be perfect. Trust is earned, respect is given and loyalty is demonstrated. Betrayal of any of those is to lose all three. I don't trust words, I trust actions. Maybe it's hard to forgive, but to trust again it the hardest. Trust is like an eraser, it's gets smaller and smaller after each mistake.
