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 any manner of thy friends
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

Which one is yours?

No man, for any considerable period,
can wear one face to himself
and another to the multitude,
without finally getting bewildered
as to which may be the true.”

[― Nathaniel Hawthorne, The Scarlet Letter]

Hello world.

“He felt that his whole life
was some kind of dream
and he sometimes wondered whose it was
and whether they were enjoying it.”
