that at last their true nature could not reveal itself;...

he may be so inexplicably woven into relationships of life
which extend far beyond himself that he almost cannot reveal himself.
But he who cannot reveal himself cannot love,
and he who cannot love is the most unhappy man of all.
- Soren Kierkegaard

of being into new circumstances
rather than becoming new yourself.
