Elephant with smoking jacket by Dreekzilla on DeviantArt

Nature’s great masterpiece, an elephant; the only harmless great thing.”   —   John Donne

(Those 16th-17th Century poets were a little out there, weren’t they?!  I highly doubt this poem is why the Republican party adopted the elephant as their symbol.  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR

Cryptoquote Spoiler – 03/12/12

no one is an island

no one is an island (Photo credit: neotint)

No man is an island, entire of itself; every man is a piece of the continent.”   —   John Donne

(” . . . 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 a manor 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.” 

I wish our political, military and corporate leaders would study this passage/poem/meditation.  Far too many acting independently . . . selfishly.  Be well, and do good . . . for the whole, friends.)   —   YUR
