Two verses from the sometimes-confusing book of Ecclesiastes say just this: 1 is greater than two, and two is greater than one.
Check them out for yourself:
1>2 … One handful of peaceful repose is better than two fistfuls of worried work.
2>1 … Two people are better off than one, for they can help each other succeed. If one person falls, the other can reach out and help. But someone who falls alone is in real trouble.
When it comes to working hard to get stuff: 1>2. It’s far better to have less and enjoy it more.
When it comes to meaningful relationships: 2>1. It’s far better to have the time to invest in more intimate relationships.
Never, ever, EVER let the pursuit of stuff get in the way of your important relationships.
