If you put a teaspoon full of vinegar or maple syrup into a shot glass half full of water the vinegar glass would be bitter to drink and the syrup glass noticeably sweet.
Do the same experiment with a teaspoon full of each and a water glass half full of water.
Then do it again with a bucket of water.
Then an ocean.
Its still just a teaspoon full.
But its not exactly like that i would guess.
Someone please rescue this line of thinking with a better analogy
"Even if you've read the whole Canon and can remember lots of teachings; even if you can explain them in poignant ways, with lots of people to respect you; even if you build a lot of monastery buildings, or can explain inconstancy, stress, and not-self in the most detailed fashion ... The only thing that serves your own true purpose is release from suffering.
