Every bit of existence has a connection to TRUST. For human, trust always precedes or exist with our actions. Trust is “a firm belief in the reliability, truth, or ability of someone or something.” Common in our everyday conversations are phrases such as “truth be told...” before establishing a fact. Enthrallingly, whether the fact is genuinely true does not guarantee the listener will believe the fact, no matter how it is presented. What will make the listener accept it to be the truth is TRUST, either trust in themselves (the power to judge, accept or reject intellectually) or trust in the speaker by giving up their judgement. This leads us to another commonly adopted maxim; “do not trust anyone”. The inference from the adage is to admit the imperfection of man, his ability to err or deceive by choice for various reasons.
