Some thoughts...

“To be trusted is a greater compliment than being loved.” ~ George MacDonald


"That person who never forsaketh his trust, should ever have the highest place of regard in our hearts, and our love should never fail, but increase more and more, and this is my disposition and these my sentiments." ~ Joseph Smith

 The great Prophet Isaiah, whom the Savior frequently quoted, warned, “Woe unto them that call evil good and good evil; that put darkness for light, and light for darkness!”

“In times like these men should utter nothing for which they would not be willingly responsible through time and in eternity.” ~ Abraham Lincoln

“The time comes upon every public man when it is best for him to keep his lips closed.” ~ Abraham Lincoln

Losers make promises they often break.  Winners make commitments they always keep.  ~Denis Waitley

And be these juggling friends no more believ'd,
That palter with us in a double sense;
That keep the word of promise to our ear
And break it to our hope.
~William Shakespeare

Breach of promise is a base surrender of truth.  ~Mohandas Gandhi


Indicating confidence or intimacy; imparting private matters: a confidential tone of voice;
having another's trust or confidence; entrusted with secrets or private affairs: a confidential secretary.

1.  restricted, private. 2.  intimate, familiar. 3.  trusted, trustworthy, private
Keeping confidences is a major feature of integrity.
