when it is pressed together and condensed,
loses it This very thing you are“

birth and the beginning of
another fetid nest is change, presents
no more than itself And the too strong grasping of it,
when it is pressed together and condensed,
loses it This very thing you are

„They've tried to grasp with too much social fact
Too large a situation.“

—  Robert Frost American poet 1874 - 1963

The Lesson for Today (1942)
Kontext: They've tried to grasp with too much social fact
Too large a situation. You and I
Would be afraid if we should comprehend
And get outside of too much bad statistics,
Our muscles never could again contract:
We never could recover human shape,
But must live lives out mentally agape
Or die of philosophical distention.
That's how we feel — and we're no special mystics.
