If you want to go fast, go alone. If you want to go far, go together. (African proverb)

We’ve all had times when we really wanted to do something by ourselves because having someone else along would slow us down. That happens too often in today’s fast-paced society. On the other hand, for the long haul, we do need the companionship of others. The camaraderie, the able assistance, the encouragement—they all enable us to go a lot further.

Two people are better off than one, for they can help each other succeed (Ecclesiastes 4:9).
