The Day the Light Dawned

For Sunday reflection, this from Paul Halmos (and h/t to Jim Propp for bringing this quote to my attention):
“The day when the light dawned… I suddenly understood epsilons and limits, it was all clear, it was all beautiful, it was all exciting… It all clicked and fell into place. I still had everything in the world to learn, but nothing was going to stop me from learning it. I just knew I could. I had become a mathematician.”
