No man is an island,
No man stands alone,
Each man's joy is joy to me,
Each man's grief is my own.


We need one another,
So I will defend,
Each man as my brother,
Each man as my friend.


I saw the people gather,
I heard the music start,
The song that they were singing,
Is ringing in my heart.


No man is an island,
Way out in the blue,
We all look to the one above,
For our strength to renew.


When I help my brother,
Then I know that I,
Plant the seed of friendship,
That will never die.

    No man is self sufficient. Everybody relies on one another to fulfil their tasks. No one is the wealthiest person on earth nor can he control the entire world. No one is born with great knowledge. Qualities come from actions not from birth.
