Summary of “No Man Is An Island” by John Donne
Living a life all by oneself is a false notion, it’s a myth. No one can survive living in isolation we all need love and acceptance and help of others in order to survive and grow further in our lives. Loneliness or emptiness in the heart can never make a person grow, a person need to feel full with love and joy in his heart in order to grow and succeed in life. That is all we need from each other love, guidance and support. Someone with whom we can share all our emotions, our feeling of pain and joy.
Our actions and feeling in certain situation are same, but we need to limit our Indecency, lewdness, or offensiveness behavior and expression. Being angry at your wife is one thing and beating her out of anger is other. Abusive behavior or behaving extreme is not normal. This should be kept in kind. One should know the difference between innocent actions and morally reprehensible crimes.
The phrases in this poem have forever connected men with each other proving that all humans are interrelated. No man is different from other ultimately we all are same. We all experience the same feeling and emotions. We are no one to differentiate each other by the way of our status, cast or action.
