Portugal _The Battle@2011.worry

I have the constant feeling: I will recover, I can recover. I slept very well. None of those dreams or other morbid symptoms. Tomorrow dear O will come to me, and everything will be as simple, 
and limited as a circle. 
I do not fear this word "limitation." 
 The function of man's highest faculty, 

his reason, 
consists precisely of the  
{continuous limitation of infinity}  

the breaking up of infinity into convenient, 
easily digestible portions
— differentials. 
This is precisely what lends my field, mathematics, its divine beauty.
