Two Are Better Than One

A little something for those who carry more than their share.

Thanks for having broad shoulders.

"Through all his ordeal his root horror had been isolation,
and there were no words to express
the abyss between isolation and having one ally.
It may be conceded to the mathematicians that four is twice two.
But two is not twice one:
two is two thousand times one."

~ G.K. Chesterton: The Man Who Was Thursday


  1. I just came from reading another Chesterton quote ... thank you for this.

  2. Isolation... a terrible burden to carry, especially when one is in need of a lift.

    Love Chesterton.
