"Two are better than one: They get a good wage for their toil.
If the one falls, the other will help the fallen one. But woe to the solitary person! If that one should fall, there is no other to help.
So also, if two sleep together, they keep each other warm. How can one alone keep warm?
Where one alone may be overcome, two together can resist.
A three-ply cord is not easily broken." (Ecc 4:9-12)
