A Quote by William Makepeace Thackeray on character, confidence, men, nature, promises, and trust

Nature has written a letter of credit upon some men's faces that is honored wherever presented. You cannot help trusting such men. Their very presence gives confidence. There is "promise to pay" in their faces which gives confidence and you prefer it to another man's endorsement. Character is credit.

William Thackeray (1811 - 1863)
