Quotation of the week

Questa settimana una citazione estesa, parte dell'opera Devotions upon Emergent Occasions che l'autore britannico John Donne scrisse nel lontano 1624.

No man is an island,
Entire of itself.
Each 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 thine own
Or of thine friend's were.
Each man's death diminishes me,
For I am involved in mankind.
Therefore, send not to know
For whom the bell tolls,
It tolls for thee
