"All mankind is of one author and is one volume."
"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 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."
Aus: Devotions upon Emergent Occasions
Das gesamte Zitat "No man is an island [...] and therefore never send to know for whom the bell tolls; it tolls for thee" stellte Ernest Hemingway seinem Roman For Whom the Bell Tolls (1940) voran.
