The Arithmetic of Love

Pain shared subtracts & divides.

Joy shared adds & multiplies.


Ecclesiastes 4:

9 Two are better than one; because they have a good reward for their labour.

10 For if they fall, the one will lift up his fellow: but woe to him that is alone when he falleth; for he hath not another to help him up.

12 And if one prevail against him, two shall withstand him; and a threefold cord is not quickly broken.
