The sharing of joy, whether physical, emotional, psychic,
or intellectual, forms a bridge between the sharers
which can be the basis for understanding much of what
is not shared between them, and lessens the threat of their difference.

genuinely happy at the successes of others,
the pie gets larger.

to those who, by the accidents of time, or place, or circumstances,
are brought into closer connection with you.
