An Itchy Proverb

African Proverb No Man is an Island

African Proverb No Man is an Island

When an animal has an itch that needs scratching, it goes to a tree. When a human being has one, he looks for a fellow human being -Igbo Proverb


African proverb meaning is no one is self-sufficient; everyone relies on others.



”No Man Is an Island” by John Donne


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.

No Man Is an Island
