“ No man is an Iland, intire of itselfe;…

…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 Manor 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.”

John Donne: Devotions Upon Emergent Occasions and Seuerall Steps in my Sicknes – Meditation XVII, 1624

“…a movie is not one idea, it’s a multitude of them. And behind these ideas are people. This is true of products in general; the iPhone, for example, is not a singular idea – there is a mind-boggling depth to the hardware and software that supports it. Yet too often, we see a single object and think of it as an island that exists apart and unto itself.”

Ed Catmull: Creativity, Inc. (2014)
