    “You must trust and believe in people or life becomes impossible.”
    – Anton Chekhov

    “Trust has to be earned, and should come only after the passage of time.”
    – Arthur Ashe

    I have started reading a lot about relations and trust after I have found that my girl was using the spy apps to monitor my activity in social networks to see if I prefer Snapchat cheating. I do not still understand why she did so but I understood the sense of sayings above.

    My Dad used to say, "The higher you fly, the fewer you meet". I've never worked out whether it had some deeper meaning, or perhaps it was just a silly joke.

    On one level it could mean that as you excel at any subject or activity, you start to leave your peers behind - success can lead to loneliness.

    On the other hand, it could just be an obvious truism.

    My mum, bless her, used to say "Trust your instincts, son.... you'll make a lot of mistakes!".

    Terrible at advice, my mum.

    People who live in glass houses should dress in the basement.

    Both a joke and sage advice
