Quote #296, My Thoughts and YOUR thoughts

Here goes blog quote #296...

"To get the full value of a joy, you must first have someone to divide it."
-Mark Twain-

Isn't that odd? To get the full value of something you have to split it in half with someone? It's one of those statements that seem to contradict, yet they are true, and they make sense. Any English majors out there know what these are called?

On similar lines, Lenard Nimoy, aka Mr Spock of Star Trek said "The more we share, the more we have." How can that be that when we give something away, we actually have MORE? It's one of those life miracles. Can't explain it, but I love that it works this way.

Back to Twain's quote... isn't that so true, something about doing something or accomplishing something, it's so much better if there is someone to tell, or to experience it rather than doing it alone. Sharing brings great joy. Well done Mr. Twain for pointing this out to us.

That's my view...what say you?
