I learned not to trust people; I learned not to believe what they say but to watch what they do; I learned to suspect that anyone and everyone is capable of ‘living a lie’. I came to believe that other people – even when you think you know them well – are ultimately unknowable. — Lynn Barber
I find myself too trustworthy of others to a fault. I didn’t necessarily think that it was a bad quality to have – I like to think that there is good in everyone. But lately, I’ve learned the hard way that I’ve got to stop assuming people do business with the same integrity, morals, and values that I do. Ugh. Fool me once, shame on you; fool me twice, shame on me.
