No man is an island
entire of itself;
every man is a piece of the continent,
a part of the main;

if a clod be washed away by the sea,
Europe is the less,

as well as if a promontory were,
as well as any manner of thy friends or of thine own were;


any man’s death diminishes me,
because I am involved in mankind.

And therefore never send to know
for whom the bell tolls;
it tolls for thee.


John Donne – No man is an island

Meditation XVII, 1624, Poem
