- Robert Frost

About this Quote

Robert Frost's quote speaks to the modern condition of feeling overwhelmed and disconnected from the world around us. In a world of increasing globalization, innovation, and population, we are continuously bombarded with details and stimuli. We are constantly on the move, and our lives are filled with a sense of uneasyness and disconnection. We are continuously surrounded by space, however it is a space that is filled with sound and interruption. We are unable to discover a sense of peace and connection in the vastness of area, and this disconnection can result in feelings of alienation and isolation. The quote speaks to the need to find a sense of balance and connection in the middle of the turmoil of modern-day life. We need to find a way to reconnect with the world around us and to find a sense of peace and belonging in the vastness of space.
