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.

Chuaigh mé isteach i dteach aréir
'gus d'iarr mé deoch ar mhnaoi an leanna.
Dúirt sí liom, "Ní gheobhaigh tú deor,
Buail an bothar is gabh abhaile."
