: I wanted to look up the following phrase but you didn't have it - so now I wonder if it is worth adding, of course it should verified as I am not sure how it goes...
: "the sum of its parts is greater than the whole"
: Please let me know.

That's a really common phrase. But I couldn't find it in any of my reference books. Anyone else have better luck?
