A word on loyalty quotes
Loyalty quotes can be deeply intriguing. Think of this quote by William Wordsworth: “I had but one friend, and she was the best woman I ever knew.” The above quote is about having a single friend and having the best friend she could be without having to compromise your values and principles. On the other hand, you may have to find a few good people to form a friendship network and maybe hang out with them a couple times per week.
However, without loyalty, all your efforts will go to waste. Without friendship, you’ll be able to see all the good people without really believing that you can trust them enough to spend time with them. This may be a theoretical argument for you, but it’s still a valid point: Without loyalty, you’ll be willing to part with the people easily, without a quiet understanding as to their needs and expectations.
You need to have some degree of loyalty to people before you can be loyal to them. This can be true for both friendships and romantic relationships. As an example, I’m not always loyal to my husband, even though he’s the love of my life. If he weren’t the love of my life, I wouldn’t be as likely as other women to cheat on them. Because I have a degree of loyalty to my husband, however, I can still remain loyal to him, and remain willing to be honest and faithful to him, even if he’s the only one who I think about (and talk to, and get to know).
“Loyalty is not a trait that we can be pushed or forced into, it must be developed.” The above quote is from the movie Meet the Parents, where Danny Wilder is talking to his family about how he should behave with his daughter, Fiona. Fiona, of course, is highly jealous of her brother’s attention, so Danny Wilder tries to give her advice on how to develop loyalty. “You must be loyal if you are to develop friendship,” he says. Fiona then goes on to say that she’ll always be open to someone else’s friendship, even though she thinks that Danny has a “very limited” level of it.
This brings up an interesting discussion about self-esteem and devotion. Self-esteem is how you think you are, basically. Dedication is what you feel you are capable of doing. It ties in with loyalty, because they are somehow related. When you are dedicated to something, it means you are trying very hard, but when you are self-esteem deficient, you believe that you are simply nothing special, which leads to hubristic behavior. That could lead to dangerous actions, such as blowing in the wind.
Loyalty quotes and happiness
The second biggest key to happiness is honesty. Taylor Lautner makes mention of honesty as the foundation of a good marriage in her new book, Living With Love. Honesty is the foundation for building the bonds of loyalty and trust, which are the two main ingredients to a happy marriage.
I found an oldie song by Elvis called “That’s All Right,” and that has always stuck with me. In the song, the lady says to the man, “I’ve been faithful all these years to you, sometimes you knock me down, but I never break. If I did, I’m a wreck. I’m loyal like a dog, and I’m not afraid to die.” This lady is expressing the most important virtue of loyalty and faithfulness to her significant other, and that is the basis for trust and loyalty.
There are many more quotations from various books and sources that illuminate the basis of trust and loyalty. No matter what relationship you are in, if you are not loyal, then you will find yourself without integrity, a dishonest person, lacking in integrity, and you will certainly be unhappy. A happy medium would be to have some loyalty, but without being totally honest, truthful, trustworthy, upright, and trustworthy, you can’t be totally loyal and remain trustworthy.
