Vocabulary notes - "TRUST"

Just a quick note about "TRUST": Generally, TRUST is something you do, not something you have:

I trust this car. (NOT: *I don't have trust of this car.)

The Oxford Advanced Learner's Dictionary gives us some useful notes on how to use this word:

You can trust a person, but not a thing or system. You can trust somebody's judgement or advice, but not their support. You can depend on someone's support, but not their judgement or advice.
