"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 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

We dread the immortal unknown, Because we cannot grasp its reality. God does not seek to pacify us, Or destroy who we are, But to clarify, purify and intensify All that we were meant to be.
