conclusions follows logically if the following is assumed...

PT 46, Section II, #23

My approach:

Kind ---> loved by somebody
love anyone ---> happy

Conclusion: kind ---> happy

Hmmm... just don't know how to tie this one together.

The missing piece is:

loved by somebody -> love anyone

If you had that, you could do:

Kind ---> loved by somebody -> love anyone ---> happy

which is what you're trying to do. IIRC, the credited response is the contrapositive of the missing piece (i.e. ~love anyone -> ~loved by somebody, something like "Whoever loves no one is loved by no one").
