Famous Quote 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 friends or of thine own were; any mans 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, Meditation XVII
