Trust No One

To trust a stranger without investigation invites troubles so endless that even descendants must endure them.

Without investigation, trust no one. Having investigated, entrust a man with matters for which he is trustworthy.

To trust a man who has not been tested and to suspect a man who has proven trustworthy lead alike to endless ills.
