A Quote by "Mahatma" Mohandas Karamchand Gandhi on suspicion, trust, violence, and non-violence

He who trusts has never yet lost in the world.  A suspicious man is lost to himself and the eworld.... Suspicion is of the brood of violence.  Non-violence cannot but trust...

A Quote by unknown on children, day, decisions, doubt, food, heart, jealousy, jobs, laws, life, order, rest, sex, suspicion, and time

You know, everyday I get out of bed and drag myself to the next cup of coffee. I take a sip and the caffeine kicks in. I can focus my eyes again. My brain starts to order the day. I'm up, I'm alive. I'm ready to rock. But the time is coming when I wake up and decide that I'm not getting out of bed. Not for coffee, or food, or sex. If it comes to me, fine. If it won't, fine. No more expectations. The longer I live the less I know. I should know more, I should know the coffee's killing me. You're suspicious of your suspicions? I'm jealous. I'm so jealous. You still have the heart to have doubts. Me? I'm going to lock up a 14 year old kid for what could be the rest of his natural life. I got to do this. This is my job. This is the deal. This is the law. This is my day. I have no doubts or suspicions about it. Heart has nothing to do with it anymore. It's all in the coffee.

A Quote by Stark Young on deception, fatherhood, mistakes, people, and suspicion

My father used to say: "Never suspect people. It's better to be deceived or mistaken, which is only human, after all, than to be suspicious, which is common."

A Quote by Shaftesbury on rhetoric, sage, seriousness, suspicion, and wit

'T was the saying of an ancient sage (Gorgias Leontinus, apud Aristotle's "Rhetoric," lib. iii. c. 18), that humour was the only test of gravity, and gravity of humour. For a subject which would not bear raillery was suspicious; and a jest which would not bear a serious examination was certainly false wit.

A Quote by Russell Baker on suspicion, work, and writing

The only thing I was fit for was to be a writer, and this notion rested solely on my suspicion that I would never be fit for real work, and that writing didn't require any.
