Happiness multiplies when we divide it. ~Paulo Coelho
Adam Rifkin stashed this in #happiness
I've heard the word happiness used in this quote instead of joy.
Divide your happiness == Share with others!
"network effect" of joy and happiness!
but... this is an identity; OF COURSE something multiplies when it is divided, the two operations are reciprocal... y = 2 * y/2. when i cut my cheezburger in half, how many pieces do i have? so does that mean my cheezburger defies math too? durrrhh
I think there's something deeper at play.
You cut a cheese burger in half and you still have the same cheese burger, just cut in 2.
You share joy or happiness and you actually increase the amount of joy or happiness.
no i have two cheezburgers that I can share with someone! and that is certainly happiness multipled... yeah yeah 1+1 = 3...
I like the way you think, Waylan.
