John Donne said "no man is an island," and he was right - but, like it or not, I seem to be an isthmus.

Current Mood: clever (how's that working out for you?)

"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 owne 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."

That boy needed spellcheck.

Yes, but...

Donne also said:

O stay, three lives in one flea spare,
Where we almost, yea, more than married are.
This flea is you and I, and this
Our marriage bed, and marriage temple is.
Though parents grudge, and you, we're met,
And cloister'd in these living walls of jet.
Though use make you apt to kill me,
Let not to that self-murder added be,
And sacrilege, three sins in killing three.

Re: Yes, but...

it's an excerpt from a seduction poem. "This flea bit both of us, so let's co-mingle fluids like he did!"
