《on trust of words》

We trust others in the sense that we attach their words to their character, and in doing so, our trust for them and their words is alike, without separation. It is not to say that we trust them unconditionally, without pause for concern or doubt, and it is not to say that we must always agree with their words. But we can expect that what is said is more so said by a certain being. It is the richness of this context which allows us to accept one’s words at all.
