Reflections on The Power of Influential People
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; if a clod be washed away by the sea, Europe is the less, as well as if a promontory were, as well as any manner 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 Dunne
Our lives are so intertwined with others that what happens to them impacts us. Additionally, each of us has been influenced by those with whom our lives are intertwined. Thanks be to God, we don’t travel alone. Some people leave indelible marks on us. That’s what this post is about.
