If we start without confidence, we have already lost half the battle and we bury our talents.

Evangelii Gaudium
If people like you, they'll listen to you, but if they trust you, they'll do business with you.
Confidence isn't optimism or pessimism, and it's not a character attribute. It's the expectation of a positive outcome.
I've learned the perimeter of my circle of confidence.
The best way to find out if you can trust somebody is to trust them.
Blessed are those who entrust their lives to no one.

The Book of Disquiet
Danger breeds best on too much confidence
It is a mark of prudence never to trust wholly in those things which have once deceived us
The people when rightly and fully trusted will return the trust
If once you forfeit the confidence of your fellow-citizens, you can never regain their respect and esteem

On Anger: "For every minute you remain angry, you give up sixty seconds of peace of mind."
On Destiny: "Our destiny exercises its influence over us even when, as yet, we have not learned its nature: it is our future that lays down the law of our today."
Human, All Too Human
On Friendship: "A crowd is not company; and faces are but a gallery of pictures; and talk but a tinkling cymbal, where there is no love."
