I have never posted before and I don't know what more can be said on the subject. I don't know that I even want to talk about it any more, but I want some place to put this.

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.

John Donne

One of mine, too. Talking a lot of sense 350 years ago.
