“Trust is freedom’s essential living space. Where other people trust me, I can expand freely and go out of myself. Where I am met with mistrust and rejection, I feel forced into a corner, and withdraw into myself. Fish need water to swim in, birds need air in which to fly, and we human beings need trust if we are to devleop our humanity and our powers. Trust is the element for human life.”

~Jurgen Moltmann, Ethics of Hope, 210
