“Two people are better than one because together they have a good reward for their hard work. If one falls, the other can help his friend get up. But how tragic it is for the one who is all alone when he falls. There is no one to help him get up…Though one person may be overpowered by another, two people can resist one opponent. A triple-braided rope is not easily broken.” Ecclesiastes 4: 9-10, 12 (GW)
