No Man is an Island

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 of thine own were; any man’s death diminishes me. Because I am involved in mankind; and therefore never send to know for who the bell tolls; it tolls for thee.

–John Donne

We have two ears and one mouth so that we can listen twice as much as we speakEpictetus
