Loyalty Quotes

The benefits of loyalty are frequently discussed; anyone who has ever been harmed by someone they thought was a true friend can attest to the fact that loyalty has two sides. But no one who has ever needed a good friend can deny that it is one of the most valuable things a person can have. However, as valuable as it is, it can also be quite scarce.

One of the reasons why loyalty is such an uncommon attribute nowadays is that it is so easily misplaced. How many times have you pledged your allegiance to a person or a cause only to be disappointed when your trust is violated and your faith is shattered?

Families are shattered and friendships are empty without loyalty. These loyalty quotations come from writers, politicians, business people, and others who have pondered the virtues and implications of loyalty for a long time. These loyalty quotations cover promises made inside armed groups, organizations, and governments, as well as loyalty between spouses and friends.

Quotes to encourage you to seek and produce the best in your own relations, to lead others through generosity and grace, and to deliver the greatest service to those who deserve it are all available here.
