A Quote by Arnold Joseph Toynbee on children, confidence, heart, husbands, life, mistrust, motherhood, needs, possibility, practicality, secrets, wives, and world

Yet there is enough confidence between mother and child, husband and wife, buyer and seller . . . to make social life a practical possibility. Confidence may be risky, but it is nothing like so risky as mistrust.
