No Man is an Island…

No man is an island entire of itself;

every man is a piece of the continent,

a part of the main.

John Donne (full version here)

I just absolutely love this quote and this sentiment. We are all so connected. Some days I feel so connected to our campus and to UNC as a whole winning a basketball game always induces this feeling). However, other days can be lonely and island-like in their isolation (caught up in work, canceled plans, etc). It’s comforting to remember that even when those others, those friends, are not seen, I am not an island unto myself. I am not ‘alone.’

We are all interconnected.

We all influence and are influenced by each other.

Something to remember.
