The Split

Splitting one great thing into two doesn't make it two times better. It actually makes the two individual parts half as valuable on their own. 

It's like trying to slice a sandwich down the middle. There's not only usually one side that reaps more benefits, but there's inevitably some bread remnants that crumbled off during the cutting process.

Lesson: Don't cut a sandwich in half if you can grip and eat the sandwich with both of your hands all at once. You'll take in more that way. 

...End metaphor.
