Por quem dobra o sino?

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.
