John Donne quotes

All mankind is one volume,
When one man dies,
one chapter is not torn out of the book,
but translated into a better language.
And every chapter must be so translated,
God employs several translators,
Some pieces are translated by age,
Some by sickness, some by war, some by justice,
But God’s hand shall bind up all our scattered leaves again for that library,
Where every book shall lie open to one another.”

 

John Donne
