No Man Is An Island(write by John Donne)

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 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 bells tolls;
it tolls for thee.

-- John Donne

没有人能自全,
  没有人是孤岛,
  每人都是大陆的一片,
  要为本土应卯
  那便是一块土地,
  那便是一方海角,
  那便是一座庄园,
  不论是你的、还是朋友的,
  一旦海水冲走,
  欧洲就要变小。
  任何人的死亡,
  都是我的减少,
  作为人类的一员,
  我与生灵共老。
  丧钟在为谁敲,
  我本茫然不晓,
  不为幽明永隔,
  它正为你哀悼。

  —— John Donne ( 李敖译 )
