Wisdom on Wednesday : The relationship between trust and expectation

CALLY : My people have a saying. 'A man who trusts can never be betrayed, only mistaken.'

AVON : Life expectancy must be fairly short among your people...

Dialogue from the Blake's 7 episode 'Mission to Destiny'. They could almost have been talking about us Scots - forever putting our trust in others (ie. Westminster politicians) to solve our problems with their 'jam tomorrow' pledges, and ending up with the lowest life expectancy in western Europe as our reward.
