Quotes on Trust

We can afford the luxury of trusting our fellow-man only because we trust in God, who has assured us that if others let us down, he will make it up to us. Of All Things, Classic Quotations from Hugh Nibley, p. 23

To be trusted is a greater compliment than to be loved. . . . — President David O. McKay, Gospel Ideals, p. 126

Faith in the Lord is trust in the Lord.  We cannot have true faith in the Lord without also having complete trust in the Lord’s will and in the Lord’s timing.  As a result, no matter how strong our faith is, it cannot produce a result contrary to the will of Him in whom we have faith.  Remember that when your prayers do not seem to be answered in the way or at the time you desire.  The exercise of faith in the Lord Jesus Christ is always subject to the order of heaven, to the goodness and will and wisdom and timing of the Lord.  When we have that kind of faith and trust in the Lord, we have true security and serenity in our lives. — Elder Dallin H. Oaks, “The Atonement and Faith,” Ensign, April 2010, p. 30

This life is an experience in profound trust – trust in Jesus Christ, trust in His teachings, trust in our capacity as led by the Holy Spirit to obey those teachings for happiness now and for a purposeful, supremely happy eternal existence.  To trust means to obey willingly without knowing the end from the beginning. — Elder Richard G. Scott, Conference Report, October 1995
