No Man Is An Island - Poem by John Donne

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.

    Any man's death diminishes him. we are capable of learning unlike animals.Crows crow at the carcass of their friend. Perhaps it diminishes them. They crow in a chorus.That lead us to live life ideally in a collective fashion, old
    clan camp.in an exalted manner. as different from the present day individualistic manner.Brilliant poem (Report) Reply

    Most of us go about our lives not realing how mch influence we have on the people surrounding us. The influence is for good or for ill. The poet John Dunne writes in the hope of influencing us that we may open our eyes to this truth. Therefore, in this light, be inspired by his words, roll up your shirtsleeves, and encourage someone, So easy to become appethetic. Get involved for the good. Someone is waiting to be cared about. Listen to them. (Report) Reply
