Ninety-Five Percent

My new favorite quote goes as follows. "Nobody in their right mind would put 95% of their wealth on a single bank, yet it is common to dedicate 95% of our time to a single person". That person is usually called a partner, and the bond to that person, love. The quote is from a book that admits that such a bond imposes a myriad of artificial constraints, hindering other types of important bonds and demoting them to plain friendships. It finally acknowledges the existance of other types of special people, and the significant benefits of giving them a share of that 95%. That is the share where all those wonderful endless conversations with a great friend fit in :-)

In the book, those other special people are called the "yellow" people
