Which is better?

"You are only as good as the love you have for other people." or "We are only as good as the love we have for other people."

The first sentence does not include the writer and sounds a little preachy to me. I prefer the later when I write, as it conveys a sense that we are in this world together.

And so in all my writing, I try to use the word "we" rather than "you" though it is not always possible without distorting the English grammar.

From a marketing perspective, the author of this article Marketing Material Tip: Use of “We” vs. “You.” disagrees with me.

When writing informally, as say a blogger - which do you think is best? Which is the more authentic?

I'd love to know your thoughts. I have posted this question on the Gurteen Knowledge Community group on LinkedIn.

Please join the discussion there.
