Trust, like wet sand, is a formidable building material. It takes small objects, each too weak individually to represent much, and binds them to create things larger than their parts. Similarly, it is a hard thing to grasp. You can carry it by the broad handful, squeezing the center as the fringes of it slide out of reach, but too tight or loose of a grip will result only in being left empty-handed. It is better to cultivate it, to gather it by moving it rather than taking it: never trying to lay claim to something which can only be given.
