Hmmm..

No man is an Iland, intire of it selfe; every man is a peece of the Continent, a part of the maine; if a Clod bee washed away by the Sea, Europe is the lesse, as well as if a Promontorie were, as well as if a Mannor of thy friends or of thine own were; any mans death diminishes me, because I am involved in Mankinde; And therefore never send to know for whom the bell tolls; It tolls for thee.

-John Donne (Meditation XVII of Devotions Upon Emergent Occasions)


They say that no man is an island
And good things come to those who wait
But the things I hear are there just to remind me
Every dog will have his day..

-Jon Bonjovi (Santa Fe)

interesting how generations separate the two pieces, but human priorities don't seem to change..

But...

...the rock feels no pain;
The island never cries....

every man is connected in this world no matter how induvidualistic he perceives himself to be. very true.

do you find it hard to break away from human bonds?

They say you're born in sin
Well at least they gave me something
I didn't have to steal or have to win
You ask about my conscience
And I offer you my soul
You ask if I'll grow to be a wise man
Well I ask if I'll grow old
You ask me if I've known love
And what it's like to sing songs in the rain
Well, I've seen love come
And I've seen it shot down
I've seen it die in vain
Shot down in a blaze of glory

It IS just like the "I am a rock" song of S&G.

The Island never cries, true, but hidden in my room, safe within my womb, I touch no one and no one touches me

So are you writing the CAT?
