AdjectiveEdit

treu (comparative treuer, superlative am treusten or am treuesten)

  1. loyal; faithful; true
    Willst du deinen eigenen Worten nicht treu bleiben?
    Aren't you going to be true to your own words?
    • c. 1706, Bach, Johann Sebastian, Cantata BWV 150, Nach dir, Herr, verlanget mich:
      Bleibet Gott mein treuer Schatz, achte ich nicht Menschenkreuz.
      If God remains my faithful treasure, I give no care to man’s cruelty.
    • 1966, Möller, Eberhard Wolfgang, Die feindlichen Schwestern, Berg: Hohenstaufen Verlag, published 1983, →ISBN, page 276:
      Dir muß man imponieren können, sonst hat man bei dir verspielt. Solange du zu einem Menschen aufsehen mußt, bist du treu, oder was du für Treue hältst. Solche verwöhnten Geschöpfe wie du haben nämlich nie gelernt, was Treu-sein wirklich heißt. Sie kennen nur ihre Eigenliebe und anerkennen nur, was die Nase noch höher trägt als sie, weil das ihrem Selbstgefühl schmeichelt. Doch wenn es einmal darauf ankommt, ein Opfer zu bringen, opfern sie bedenkenlos alles, nur nicht sich selbst.
      One has to impress you, else one has lost you. As long as you have to look up to someone, you're loyal, or what ever you mistake for loyalty. Because such spoiled creatures as you have never learned what being loyal really means. They know only their narcissism and acknowledge only them who have their nose higher up in the air than them because that helps their ego. But when it's up to them to make sacrifices, they unhesitatingly offer everything but themselves.
