The Five One Review

I Am


Meditation XVII – Devotions Upon Emergent Occasions

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 if a manor of thy friend’s 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.
