  • DS

    Two are better than one, because they have a good return for their labor: If either of them falls down, one can help the other up. But pity anyone who falls and has no one to help them up. Also, if two lie down together, they will keep warm. But how can one keep warm alone? Though one may be overpowered, two can defend themselves. A cord of three strands is not quickly broken (Eccl. 4:9-12)

    • Whenever I hear that I always think about, “But their is one in win.” :) I agree DS shared a great one. Same with me, It would have been included if I had remembered it.
