‘Islands’

“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, MEDITATION XVII Devotions upon Emergent Occasions

It’s like I’m standing on the edge with just a telephone wire
Trying to get to you first to say the world’s on fire
Holding my breath until I know you’re alright
Because the water will only rise
When will you realize
You must become an island
You must become an island
You must become an island
And see for yourself that that’s what I am

– Islands, Sara Bareilles
