There’s a lot, really. Think of the saying, “The more, the merrier”.

tuition money…memories from college and making sure I had enough!

According to my son, glue, any type of glue. He’s 5. Of course more is better!

a little love from the person you love only makes you want more (so it does not go a long way)!

the reason we point out that “in this case, a little goes a long way” is that in MOST cases a little goes a little way. this saying is not a truism. it’s an exception to what is otherwise a pretty reliable rule.
